New features in the SSO solution: fast user switching and follow me Bergisch Gladbach, March 16, 2010 Tools4ever, successful manufacturer of innovative solutions in the field of identity and access management, presents a new version of enterprise single sign on Manager (E-SSOM). The main new features of this version are fast user switching and follow me. Using fast user switching end-users can access very quickly on their applications, by going to the sluggish Windows logon. Is a user instead of minutes, as applied in a standard Windows environment within a few seconds. E-SSOM assumes the login, start and close applications.
This is useful primarily in locations where multiple end users with their own user account using alternately only a PC, e.g. in nursing departments in hospitals. If an organization has Citrix or Terminal Services (TS), can be used – instead of fast user switching – follow me. Follow me linked to an open session automatically a user once this knowing is doing on a workstation. Fast user switching & follow me in many organizations several people share a PC. With the sign-on within Windows and launching applications to lose any precious time, a single generic user account is often used.
That is, but uncertain, because users can access such unauthorized disclosure on certain information. Audits and in terms of compliance with the provisions of this practice not well received. With fast user switching, a work station, including applications, is readily available. A user must login only instead of the slow Windows at E-SSOM. Then, the applications for which it is authorized, will start automatically. The login is also automatically. When the application is started, you must login only. A smart card can be further simplify and accelerate this process. As soon as the user introduces the smart card into the reader, E-SSOM recognizes that. The user switches automatically, it is logged, and the right Launch applications.
