A shared technical foundation for scalable
and open access control
By providing its users with Single Sign-On (SSO) for all their applications, the FHVI is meeting several of its objectives.
Firstly, it offers its users ease of access, by simplifying their password management. Releasing staff from the IT constraints will enable them to save time and refocus fully on providing care and the quality of the service offered.
Simultaneously, FHVI wanted to strengthen its system’s security by simplifying the application of its security policy. The use of weak or shared passwords, or even generic sessions open continuously, must come to an end. These practices have become commonplace and have a direct impact on the information system’s security.
In order to provide employees with complete access to authorised applications wherever they are, FHVI wanted to open up access to its information system.
Employees must also enjoy simple and direct access to external services offered by the organisation’s suppliers or partners. The aim here is to avoid users having to sign on each time they wish to connect to a partner application.
