Hitachi ID Login Manager, a module included with Hitachi ID Password Manager, is an enterprise single sign-on solution. It automatically signs users into applications where the ID and/or passwords are the same ones users type to sign into Windows on their PC.
Login Manager leverages password synchronization instead of stored passwords. This means that it does not require a wallet and that users can continue to sign into their applications from devices other than their corporate PC -- such as a smart phone or tablet -- for which a single sign-on client may not be available.
Login Manager does not require scripting or a credential vault, so has a much lower total cost of ownership (TCO) than alternative single sign-on tools.
Corporate users typically have to sign into 10 or more applications regularly. They may have to remember and certainly must type IDs and passwords for each of these applications repeatedly.
Users are inconvenienced by repeated login prompts. Repeatedly signing into applications takes time and creates frustration.
The main benefit of Login Manager is reducing the number of times that users must type their credentials. When users launch applications that use the same credentials as the primary Windows login and which Login Manager has seen before, it automatically fills in login IDs and passwords.
Login Manager is built to leverage Password Manager, which has its own benefits: stronger passwords, regular password changes, robust authentication prior to password and PIN resets and self-service resolution of login problems related to smart cards, one time password tokens and full disk encryption.
