【Classic Enterprise Case Studies】SSO Streamlines the Login Process, Controlling the Enterprise Login



Case Introduction: One-Click SSO Login, Significantly Reducing Time Needed for Account Migration and Creation


User Background:

PCB Manufacturer IT Manager - Manager Wang


Scenario:

As the IT manager of a Taiwan-based PCB manufacturer, Manager Wang faces increasing challenges in personnel scheduling and mobility as the company rapidly expands. With the company adopting the Azure public cloud system architecture, whenever new members join or personnel adjustments occur, Manager Wang's team spends time creating and configuring Microsoft accounts and passwords, linking them with various company systems. As personnel scheduling situations increase, the IT team even has to temporarily set aside core tasks to handle these trivial duties, impacting team efficiency and leading to complaints from team members. Additionally, the existing operational tools are not linked to Microsoft accounts, requiring IT personnel to set multiple account-password pairs for colleagues simultaneously, making it difficult to avoid user sharing of accounts and increasing security risks.


However, the company, for cost-effectiveness, chooses to provide only one set of shared account and password, resulting in transparency issues with operation records. Because all members share the same login credentials, when system errors or problems occur, Manager Wang finds it challenging to determine who performed what operations at which time, making it difficult to accurately address issues.



Solution:

To address these challenges, Manager Wang opted for a new hybrid multicloud privileged management tool - Mavis. Mavis not only provides centralized integration of cloud resources but also combines Privileged Access Management (PAM), assisting IT personnel in easily creating a revamped account-password management framework. Through Mavis, enterprises can centrally manage data access permissions for personnel at all levels while supporting SSO login, allowing users to perform all necessary operations by logging into Mavis with just one set of credentials. Mavis's privileged management mechanism allows IT personnel to finely control and monitor the permissions of each account, effectively enhancing cybersecurity levels and reducing potential risks both internally and externally. This new account-password management framework not only improves security but also significantly reduces the manual workload of IT personnel in setting up accounts and passwords, freeing up more time for the team to focus on core business tasks. This, in turn, reduces conflicts between teams and enhances overall operational efficiency.


As all logins are now done through Mavis, all operations are meticulously recorded, including logs and image records of operations. This means Manager Wang can quickly trace the root cause of problems and clarify the cause and effect of events. This enables the team to collaborate more transparently, making it easier to address and solve problems while enhancing overall security and compliance.


Know more about Mavis SSO

SSO (Single Sign-On), also known as single sign-in, is an authentication and authorization mechanism that allows users to log in at a single authentication entry point and then access resources in multiple associated applications or systems without re-entering authentication information. The core idea of SSO is to provide users with a simpler, more convenient login experience while reducing the complexity of managing multiple accounts and passwords. After users complete the initial login, the SSO system obtains relevant authentication credentials and automatically applies these credentials in subsequent accesses, eliminating the need for users to go through the authentication process again. In addition to individually setting up accounts and passwords for colleagues, Mavis can also integrate with LDAP and Microsoft for connected logins, allowing users to complete all necessary logins with just one set of credentials.
