Manage single sign-on for Phoenix

Overview

Only a Druva Cloud administrator can set up Single sign-on. 

By enabling Single Sing-on (SSO), administrators can access all Druva services without the need for a separate login. You should implement SSO for your Phoenix setup for the following reasons:

  • Reduced human errors: SSO eliminates the need for remembering multiple passwords, thus reducing to a great extent, the possibility of human errors while accessing Phoenix resources. 
  • Reduced administration efforts: With single sign-on, Phoenix users and administrators logging in from their corporate network are rarely prompted for a username or password. With fewer passwords to manage, system Phoenix administrators receive fewer requests to reset forgotten passwords.
  • Central management of user database: Many organizations maintain a database of users. By enabling single sign-on for Phoenix, changes to this database also reflect on the Phoenix setup. This means that if you delete credentials from this database, users to whom these credentials were previously assigned cannot log in to Phoenix using the same credentials.
  • Reduced login time: Typically, a user needs 5 to 20 seconds to log in to an online application. SSO eliminates the efforts required for a manual login thus increasing productivity.
  • Increased security: The password policies enforced across your organization are applicable when you use SSO for Phoenix. The one-time authentication tokens used to validate SSO attempts translate to added security for users having access to sensitive data.
