New in version 6.2: Single sign-on (SSO) for the web-to-print module
The new single sign-on function simplifies the authentication in the web-to-print online shop within a closed network, because the user logs on the network and gains access to the web shop without further authentication.
What is single sign-on?
Single sign-on is an authentication process in which a user logs on a network once and thus gains access to various applications without having to sign in these applications again.
Single sign-on has many advantages:
- SSO saves your users' time because they can use multiple services after one single log on
- SSO increases safety, since only one password must be transmitted
- SSO increases the ease of use, because your users do not have to remember different usernames and passwords
- SSO reduces the administrative burden, since only one user database needs to be maintained
SSO in the web-to-print shop
As our web-to-print online shop is optimized for the B2B sector, it is often used by in-house print shops in corporations, administrations and universities, offering their users convenient ordering for printed products.
In this environment, the users are mostly registered in a closed network, for example a corporate network or the network of an university or administration, where they log on with a username and password. The log-on to the network is often linked with the Windows log-on.
Thanks to the new SSO feature, the authentication for the web-to-print shop is linked with the registration at the network. An additional log-on with different credentials is not required.
This also has the advantage, that when adding or removing users from the corporate network, these changes will also take effect in the web-to-print shop. The maintenance of an additional user database is no longer necessary.
