The Essence of Single Sign-On and Single Logout

Definition of Single Sign-On and Logins

Single sign-on allows users to log into multiple applications with a single set of credentials, streamlining the login process and reducing the need for multiple passwords. The primary goal is to achieve a universal login, where one login grants access to all connected applications.

However, the challenge arises when not all applications support popular single sign-on solutions like Okta or Active Directory (AD). Higher-tier versions of certain applications are often required to enable SSO, leading to increased costs and resistance from budget holders. Additionally, desktop applications and homegrown applications often do not support these SSO frameworks.

Challenges with Single Sign-On and Lack of Single Logout

While single sign-on addresses the login challenge to some extent, achieving universal login remains elusive. Logout, on the other hand, presents an even greater challenge. Apps often have varying or no auto logout timers, leaving sessions exposed indefinitely. This poses a significant security risk as users may unintentionally remain logged in on different devices, creating vulnerabilities that malicious actors can exploit.

Password managers, commonly used to cope with multiple logins, introduce their own set of vulnerabilities. As seen in recent hacks, compromises in password managers can lead to full exposure of enterprise applications. Thus, the partial success of current single sign-on solutions leaves crucial security gaps that need immediate attention.

Enabling True Single Sign-On and Single Logout

How Sonet.io Overcomes Single Sign-On Challenges

Sonet.io introduces a game-changing approach to single sign-on. With its integrated secure credentials vault, Sonet.io can apply the right credentials to any application, offering a genuine universal login experience. Unlike traditional SSO solutions, Sonet.io extends its support beyond the major SaaS applications to encompass desktop applications, servers and even homegrown apps. The built-in credentials vault not only handles passwords but also facilitates key-based authentication, ensuring a secure and versatile SSO solution. No session IDs, cookies or tokens are stored on user devices, further insulating against endpoint attacks.

The Importance and Demand for Single Logout Capability

With workforces becoming increasingly mobile, the absence of a universal logout feature poses significant security risks. Although some vendors have announced single logout capabilities, achieving this across all applications has proven challenging. Sonet.io, with its innovative architecture, fulfills this need years ahead of competitors.

In cases of unusual or suspicious activity, Sonet.io provides real-time alerting, allowing administrators to monitor and take immediate action. Admins can kick users out from any session or prevent access from all sessions, empowering them to respond swiftly to potential security threats.

The Growing Demand for Single Logout

While initially perceived as an impossible feat, the demand for single logout has surged, especially with the promise from vendors like Okta. However, the reality often falls short of expectations, leading IT professionals to question whether the technology is really capable of delivering on its promise. Sonet.io's approach not only fulfills this demand but also exceeds expectations by offering single logout capabilities for desktop applications, web apps, and servers.
