SECUDE Releases First Adaptable Single Sign-On Solution with Windows Authentication to SAP
SECUDE releases an attractively priced SSO solution for SAP that provides Windows authentication for SAP in a matter of minutes and that is adaptable to future customer needs.
SECUDE International AG, the leading provider of SAP authentication solutions, releases a low cost Single Sign-On (SSO) solution for SAP that enables customers to deploy Windows authentication to all SAP NetWeaver-based business solutions in a matter of minutes. Unlike other Windows solutions for SSO to SAP, the new solution is designed to easily address customers’ future needs for security, E-SOA support, single sign-on for business partners, and compliance - thus avoiding a technology lock-in that may require a costly migration in the future.
Due to cost pressure and standardization, many companies want to leverage existing investments into their IT infrastructure when they build a Single Sign-On (SSO) solution for SAP – for example their existing Windows authentication infrastructure based on Microsoft Active Directory Server (ADS) and Kerberos. They look primarily for a cost-effective, zero maintenance solution for Single Sign-On to SAP, which is proven and certified by SAP.
SECUDE secure login 4.2 Rapid Deployment Edition is based on SECUDE’s proven, SAP-certified Single Sign-On Technology. The solution leverages customers’ Windows authentication infrastructure from Microsoft to enable users to log into SAP without entering any password, once authenticated as a Windows domain user.
Unlike other Kerberos-based solutions for SSO to SAP applications, the new SECUDE solution does not lock customers in from a technology and functionality perspective. For example, customers can easily activate encryption of all SAP communication for compliance with data privacy or PCI-DSS regulation. Or they can trigger re-authentications before critical business process steps are executed. SECUDE thus prevents customers from being locked into a technology that may require a costly migration in the future.
“This is a user friendly, low-risk and low-cost entry into Single Sign-On for SAP,” says Peter Adams, Vice President of SAP Security, “We are excited about SECUDE secure login 4.2 Rapid Deployment Edition, because it gives SAP customers the choice to address additional requirements at a later point – with very little effort. This leaves customers the option for easy functional upgrades and support of the new E-SOA world. We have pushed the boundaries in terms of ease and speed of deployment. I’m convinced customers will be excited, once they see how easy it is to start with Single Sign-On for SAP.”
