Have the ability of signing in once for all web-based applications is valuable.  All we have is passwords for everything, email, personal and business applications, document shares…. The number of Web services will only increase, and keeping them all straight and secure things s only going to get worse. Trying to manage all these individual passwords is a major problem for security. Many end users cope by re-using their passwords, which exposes all sorts of security holes. One solution is a single sign-on (SSO) tool to automate the logins of enterprise applications and also beef up password complexity, without taxing end users to try to remember dozens of different logins. What is exciting is that there are several products now combine both cloud-based software as a service logins with local desktop Windows logins, and add improved two-factor authentication and smoother federated identity integration.
