As corporate operations grow more complex, network systems with varying levels of user access, roles, privileges and governance become imperative. For identity governance and administration (IGA), sub-networks create potential IT and cyber security risks. Compounding the potential enterprise risks, IT operations can limit business user productivity when identity management, user provisioning, password management, and access governance are manual and semi-manual processes. With hacking and cyber security threats rising for these reasons, easy-to-remember passwords are unacceptable and preventable.
Most passwords are typically at least 8 characters with real words not allowed. When you must remember several complex passwords, you tend to write them down and keep physical and electronic records. SSO allows you to leverage LDAP and data from an authoritative source for enterprise password management. When you record passwords, you create IT security risks. When business users do not record complex passwords, they may forget them and call help desk adding costs.
Independent industry analyst groups agree that a password reset call to help desk costs an organization approximately $30. Adding to the cost, when business users call help desk, they generally are unproductive until their password reset request is completed. Many companies deploy a self-service password reset and password management solution. A self-service enterprise password management system gives business users immediate access to all authorized networks through one secure login to all authorized protected resources and cloud services.
