App Security

Adapting to the digital age isn't always the most intuitive thing. Leading customers into a new, digital system is a difficulty on its own. But the task of pairing the things with infrastructural changes can feel an overwhelming one.

Looking for a way to make this process easier can also be intimidating—this is where OneLogin comes in. A relatively new service that I stumbled upon recently, OneLogin aims to give companies and users secure access to all of their apps and help digitally meld databases of information appear seamless. The technique uses processes like Single Sign-On (SSO) and Multifactor Authentication (MFA) to help you create a seamless and secure experience.

After taking a closer look at OneLogin, it appears to help you by giving solutions to a few specific issues that almost every company transferring services to digital realms seem to run into:

  1. Third-party access grows with the company 
  2. Because of the increasing number of services that are now being controlled remotely, there needs to be a central system for controlling the actions and access of various locations and applications while also controlling the risk of security breaches and areas of vulnerability.
  3. Finding the sweet spot between security and usability
  4. Finding an environment that allows customers and developers to access information intuitively is incredibly important, but often this comes with the risk of opening the same information to security threats. In the past few years, many corporations have suffered from various waves of user data being stolen, increasing the need for dedicated data protection.
  5. The effects of cyber attacks are more than just inconvenient
  6. Cyber attacks are a very real, modern problem that results in much larger losses for companies than just inconvenience. The liability a company has for the information it's taking is one thing, but there is also an incredible financial risk of leaving yourself open to cyber attacks. Even just one can be a costly endeavor to untangle on top of legal fees.
  7. Traditional methods can be cost-prohibitive
  8. More traditional methods of keeping data secure can not only be a lot to manage but also very cost-prohibitive. This can be because of the amount of support personnel you must hire as a result of many issues with customers forgetting passwords or not understanding the system. One of the benefits of streamlining this process through technology is saving money on these processes.

Due to these issues, I was pleasantly surprised to run into OneLogin and see how beneficial it can be for an organization. It allows you to sign-on to a multitude of applications with just a Single Sign-On (SSO), also allowing for you to integrate your directories and databases into other easily-accessible formats. This is still protected with Multifactor Authentication (MFA), though, so you don't have to worry about the security of your system being sacrificed in search of usability.

In a world that is becoming increasingly more advanced, there's no reason why your business shouldn't follow suit. Try out a free OneLogin demo and let us know if you agree!
