About Single Sign-On (SSO) authentication

What is Single Sign-On?

Single Sign-On, often referred to as SSO, is an authentication method that enables a user to access multiple software systems with a single ID and password. By implementing SSO, you can enhance security, reduce potential risks, and make user management more straightforward. Essentially, it requires your users to remember just one set of login details to interact with an array of software tools. There are various SSO solutions available for IT teams to adopt. One of these options, which Kobiton now supports, is SAML.


Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is an open-standard protocol that supports SSO functionality for a group of users. SAML works by verifying a user’s identity and sharing that information securely with the service provider. The user needs to input their credentials only once, with SAML managing the rest. This approach offers an SSO-like user experience while minimizing the risk of security breaches.
