Active Directory & Single Sign-On

Seamlessly access network resources and applications for Fonality through a single sign-on using your company credentials.

With a single sign-on, users need only memorize a single password to access both network and applications for our product. 

Why Single Sign On

Reduced Administrative Costs: With single sign-on, users only need to memorize a single password to access both network resources or external applications and Fonality. When accessing Fonality from inside the corporate network, users are logged in seamlessly, without being prompted to enter a username or password. When accessing Fonality from outside the corporate network, the users’ corporate network login works to log them in. With fewer passwords to manage, system administrators receive fewer requests to reset forgotten passwords.

Leverage Existing Investment: Many companies use a central LDAP database or Active Directory (AD) to manage user identities. By delegating Fonality authentication to this system, when a user is removed from the LDAP or AD system, they can no longer access Fonality. Consequently, users who leave the company automatically lose access to company data after their departure.

Time Savings: On average, a user takes five to 20 seconds to log in to an online application; longer if they mistype their username or password and are prompted to reenter them. With single sign-on in place, the need to manually log in to Fonality is avoided. These saved seconds add up to increased productivity.

Increased User Adoption: Due to the convenience of not having to log in, users are more likely to use Fonality and any integrated products on a regular basis. For example, users can send email messages that contain links to information in their integrated Collaboration solution such as notes and files. When the recipients of the email message click the links, the corresponding integrated Collaboration page opens automatically.

Increased Security: Any password policies that customers have established for their corporate network will also be in effect for Fonality. In addition, sending an authentication credential that is only valid for a single use can increase security for users who have access to sensitive data.
