Licence Check enhances DAVIS efficiency and security with Single Sign On
Licence Check has launched a Single Sign On (SSO) framework to improve efficiency and security for end-users of its cloud-based DAVIS (Driver and Vehicle Management Solution) licence checking application.
SSO gives a company user access to multiple applications and services from a single user login, cutting the need for multiple usernames and passwords for different applications.
It’s seen as an important aspect of a modern, effective security policy; simplifying the login makes life easier for employees and promotes better security by reducing the potential for errors, particularly as companies expand the number of software applications used for their business processes.
Benefits are many and varied: simplified username and password management, minimisation of password fatigue, improved identity protection and two-factor authentication.
Introduced as an option for DAVIS as part of a series of updates, SSO also benefits clients by providing the DAVIS platform hosted on a bespoke sub-domain, branded with its own logo and house style to provide a customised interface for a consistent look and feel.
The new SSO function has been developed in tandem with a particular client who operates a large grey fleet, ensuring it’s been tested to meet the demands of a large corporate user.
James Povah, senior developer at Licence Check, said that DAVIS has been adopted by large corporations with thousands of users, making it a pressing requirement that the application should not only offer the security of a modern authentication method but also give customers the productivity benefits SSO provides.
He added: “Single Sign On has become increasingly attractive as the demands for higher and higher degrees of security and productivity are placed on modern applications.
“Some of the greatest challenges of developing a modern application are meeting those security demands and ensuring that these safeguards are not detrimental to usability. SSO brings the best-of-breed levels of authentication to our applications and leaves us free to focus on the application’s core functionality, without compromise.”
