Single Sign-On (SSO) is a mechanism that allows users to access multiple resources using a single action of authentication and authorization. Druva supports SSO for administrators. By enabling SSO, administrators can access all Druva services without the need for a separate login.
Note: Single Sign-On applies only to Druva CloudRanger customers who also have existing product licenses.
An SSO login validates usernames and passwords against your corporate user database, typically managed by your Identity Provider (IdP). A successful validation ensures that users and administrators can log on to Druva Cloud Platform Console, without the need for a Druva generated password.
Why Single Sign-On
SSO offers the following advantages:
- Integrated access: Enabling SSO integrates access to all Druva services without the need for a separate login.
- Reduced human errors: SSO eliminates the need for remembering multiple passwords, thus reducing to a great extent, the possibility of human errors while accessing Druva CloudRanger resources.
- Enhanced security: The password policies enforced across your organization are applicable when you use SSO for inSync. The one-time authentication tokens used to validate SSO attempts translate to added security for users having access to sensitive data.
- Reduced administration efforts: With single sign-on, Druva CloudRanger users and administrators logging in from their corporate network are rarely prompted for a username or password, and administrators receive fewer requests for password resets.
