For many enterprises, the solution is a centralized single sign-on (SSO) infrastructure that leverages the enterprise directory with federation, multifactor authentication and centralized access control to give users one URL and login to access all their enterprise applications and services--without having to type in another URL or enter credentials a second time. At the same time, it provides IT with a single identity, access control and management infrastructure, closing the inevitable security and management gaps inherent in juggling multiple gateway solutions. Such a solution would offer the best of all worlds, combining enhanced user productivity with IT efficiency, cost effectiveness, security and compliance.
The modern enterprise workforce poses new challenges for IT. Today’s employees work in more places, on more devices— personal or company-owned—and over more networks than ever, using a diverse array of datacenter applications, mobile apps, SaaS and cloud services. As they move among apps, networks and devices, IT needs to be able to control access and ensure data and application security without impeding productivity.

Over the years, many IT organizations have addressed these evolving requirements through point solutions and by case-by-case configuration of access methods. The resulting fragmented experience poses a key roadblock to productivity and increases user frustration. For IT, the lack of a
