SAP releases upgraded version of Single Sign-On

SAP has improved secure authentication and data handling with a newly released version of SAP Single Sign-On.

The application provides secure authentication with one strong password and additional security factors, all administered through one central protected place. According to SAP, it delivers cost savings by reducing the need for manual authentication, password resets and helpdesk interactions.

Among the improvements in the new version of the SAP Single Sign-On are enhanced integration with existing enterprise public key infrastructure implementations, expanded support for mobile devices, automated certificate lifecycle management for the SAP NetWeaver Application Server for ABAP, a new encryption-only mode to ensure continuously secure communications, a new secure web client to easily integrate cloud and on-premise single sign-on scenarios, and enhancements for cryptographic capabilities and security protocols.
