SmartSignin

The Smart, Simple & Secure Identity for the Cloud

5/5 (2 reviews)

SmartSignin Overview

SmartSignin's SSO makes life easier for employees, enabling a one-click login to every application your organization uses without any pre-integration or collaboration with a third party like most other solutions require.

For businesses, passwords are too insecure on their own, so additional forms of authentication are necessary. Aside from geo-location detection and machine identification, SmartSignin's Identity and Access Management Suite offers customers with an SMS one-time password and knowledge-based authentication. Additionally, our patented Smart Key algorithm gives an extra layer of protection.

SmartSignin can directly be accessed on cloud or deployed within your network inside the firewall. SmartSignin is Cloud agnostic and hence can be hosted on any cloud-based infrastructure.

SmartSignin lets you integrate your AD/LDAP and other identity stores for easy syncing of users and to access all the apps you use in the cloud. SmartSignin also supports other Idenity Stores like Google Apps, SalesForce, Office365, Netsuite, Box etc. This whole system raises productivity, empowers your company, and gets rid of security liabilities. *We're constantly expanding our integration base, adding more cloud APIs for easy onboarding/offboarding.

To address the issue of BYOD, SmartSignin acts as a secure portal for mobile access. If someone wants to access company resources from device outside of company's firewall, they must authenticate through SmartSignin. Once connected, your company's policies can dictate how things go from there. In case an employee loses his mobile device, the network admin can suspend access rights to company apps for that device.

Organizations with multiple departments and/or groups need to provide their users with different levels of access in different applications. SmartSignin allows you to sync users and map their permissions across any application, quickly and efficiently. Simply create a user and assign the user to a group. The person gets access to all the group's applications instantly and they can access all these application from their individual SmartSignin dashboard.

Most companies fail to offer sufficient protection to their users. Single-factor (Username/password) authentication is the prevailing paradigm, but its weaknesses are very evident on today's Internet. Using SmartSignin's Single Sign-On and multi-factor authentication, service providers can provide their customers with the convenience of password management and auto-login and also a promise of extra protection for their online credentials and data. Service providers can also utilize SmartSignin to reduce forfeiture of revenue due to subscribers sharing their credentials with others. By protecting their customer's privacy and critical data, service providers not only gain their trust and goodwill but also loyal customers.

Benefits

ONE CLICK LOGIN
SmartSignin helps IT administrators tie all the cloud apps into a single directory and allow their customers, employees and partners to login to those applications with a single click, without needing them to repeatedly enter login credentials.

Administrator can make sure that tough passwords are set for every application thereby reducing the risk of password fatigue and password sharing.

ELIMINATE UNNECESSARY COST
SmartSignin helps organizations reduce their overhead cost:

Eliminate Password Reset Cost: With the option of self service password reset employees can reset their own passwords without needing to call helpdesk every time they forget their passwords.

Reduce Extra Licenses: With the help of 'User Summary Reports' you can find out how many employees are actually using an application and only pay for that many licenses.

No IT Infrastructure Overhead: As SmartSignin authentication does not require a Public and Private key Infrastructure there is no overhead cost associated with any appliances or devices.

SIMPLE INTEGRATION
SmartSignin is made with small businesses in mind and do not require an IT managers to set up the product. Instead of creating additional identities for their employees, organizations can integrate existing Active Directory/LDAP services to SmartSignin and start provisioning users in minutes.

Furthermore, no pre-integration is required with any 3rd party applications and no additional investment in PKI tokens or expensive appliances are required.

DEVICE & CLOUD AGNOSTIC
SmartSignin is device independent. Your employees, partners can see and sign in to all the cloud apps they're authorized to use, on the go, through any mobile device. SmartSignin ensures robust protection of credentials and critical company data even when your users are constantly accessing corporate resources from different locations and platforms.

SmartSignin is also cloud independent which means that it can be deployed on any type of cloud environment, be it a public, private or hybrid cloud. This also ensures that customers are not isolated from using SmartSignin just because of the cloud dependency.

ROBUST SECURITY & PRIVACY
SmartSignin works with our patented SmartKey algorithm which ensures the complete privacy and security of user data. Our technology makes customers the real owner of their data by allowing them to select their own private key to decrypt data. No one, not even the staff of PerfectCloud can ever access the critical data of our customers.

To give a private experience, SmartSignin works on a cookie-less and PKI free architecture thereby eliminating the use of cookies and tokens.

To further enhance the security of our customers we log them out and delete their session information if they have been idle for 20 minutes. This timeout is configurable.

MONITORING FOR COMPLIANCE
IT can control and audit access to adhere to government compliance. Centralized access-tracking and automated periodic reports can be generated to comply with HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley and other forms of regulation.

SmartSignin Main Features

Secure Architecture for Single Sign-On

SmartSignin has a unique and secure architecture that allows for employees to use a single sign-on, using its patented SmartKey algorithm to ensure complete privacy and security of user data, without the often insecure implementation of cookies or tokens. This one encrypted log-in gives each user access to all the necessary cloud-based tools, while allowing administrators to revoke access easily at any time.

A “zero-knowledge tool,” all sensitive data is encrypted through SmartSignin before it even leaves any device.

Users add usernames and passwords for the apps they use every day.

Authorize Users with Government-level Security

SmartSignin puts password resets and user management within an administrator console, making it easy to manage accounts for employees located throughout the organization, allotting individual cloud access to each member.

For organizations that deal with regulatory and compliance requirements, SmartSignin can help ensure audits go more smoothly. Restricted access ensures administrators know every person who is accessing which apps when for how long. The system can also generate reports, complying with PCI DSS, HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, and other regulations.

Administrators can easily manage users in the user dashboard.

Easily Manage Businesses of All Sizes

SmartSignin integrates with a business’s existing Active Directory, importing users and groups to provide the current level of access to each. When a new employee comes, an administrator only has to add a user to a specific group and establish his or her access rights to give that user the same rights as everyone else in the group. If a change has to be made to access, that change can be made with just a couple of clicks, rather than having to be applied to each individual user.

Because SmartSignin is connected to Active Directory, changes can be synced there, as well. This allows businesses to use SmartSignin as the sole user management tool. The app’s easy-to-use interface gives administrators the ability to map permissions across an entire enterprise quickly.

Through Groups, administrators can control access on a wide-scale level.

Grant Secure Access to Business Partners and Freelancers

Businesses today are regularly adding users to networks who aren’t immediately located within the organization, ranging from the sales rep accessing tools to show clients from his iPad to those working at a home office or on a freelance basis. SmartSignin allows administrators to efficiently grant application access to these team members, who may be working from personal devices, without putting security at risk. This partner or service provider will be given one password that offers access to all authorized applications. Of course, for both internal and external employees, this leads to smoother transitions, technological implementations and, without constant requests to override forgotten passwords, a more relaxed tech support.

Administrators can manage passwords for employees and business partners to keep systems more secure.

Complete Control over User Accounts

Uncreative passwords like QWERTY and 123456 have put thousands of businesses at risk. SmartSignin solves this by providing centralized provisioning, monitoring, and control. Admins can even provision the apps to users without ever telling them the actual log-in credentials and the end user can access the apps by a single click.

Users can be added and changed based on roles, user groups, and departments, which makes adding and removing users easy and secure. SmartSignin’s strong authentication helps protect connected accounts from phishing, pharming, identity theft, and other forms of account tampering, by consistently validating each user’s right to access each piece of data.

For individual users with account privileges, SmartSignin provides a full-service security solution. While each account requires both a password and cryptphrases, users may feel more secure with three knowledge-based questions required at login. To help organize apps, users can also tag individual applications. Apps can be grouped by such tags as “business applications,” “shopping,” “news,” “social networking,” and more.

SmartSignin gives individual users account control, including the ability to increase security.

SmartSignin Integrations

By its very nature, SmartSignin integrates with almost every app imaginable, from Gmail to a business’s own apps. No pre-integration with apps is necessary to use SmartSignin, which sets the company apart from its competitors.

SmartSignin integrates with identity stores like Google Business Apps, Box, Salesforce, Netsuite, and Microsoft Office 365. On a directory level, SmartSignin integrates with Active Directory and LDAP.
