ForgeTalk: What is Single Sign On?

Eliminate Multiple Logins. Delight Your Users.

Requiring multiple logins leads to user frustration and drop out. Single sign on (SSO) allows your users to log in once, then gain access to all their applications and services.

SSO can be enabled per domain, across domains and even outside your organization with federated SSO. All applications – cloud, legacy, third-party, and more – can be accessed from a single, common secure login.

  • Deliver frictionless access experiences
  • Leverage open standards
  • Integrate with legacy and modern apps

Streamline User Logins and Provide Greater Security


ForgeRock single sign on helps your organization deliver a ‘log in once, access everything’ environment for all users to gain access to all their applications.


Requiring a different login for each application leads to user drop-off, lost revenue, and diminished productivity. ForgeRock lets you adopt a better way, setting a single, strong user login point that is enforced universally by policy.

Leap Ahead of the Competition

User experience is everything. These days, organizations that provide the fastest, most seamless access across a wide array of applications are the ones that win the business. With more devices and more ways for users to digitally enter your organization, designing journeys that provide consistently strong, yet frictionless login across the omnichannel experience leads to greater customer satisfaction and revenue.

Enable Zero Trust Principles

Single sign on opens up a world of new possibilities. For example, ForgeRock SSO can apply intelligence to login decisions, turning user devices and locations into analytics to make real-time, policy-based decisions on user access. Users coming from trusted devices can quickly gain access. Or, in high-risk situations, an additional request for further credentials – step up authentication – can be applied to ensure a greater level of identity assurance.

Modernize at Your Own Pace

You don’t need a forklift upgrade for your legacy IT to deliver great user experiences. Single sign on easily provides access to your legacy applications from a single portal or user login. This delivers a unified, seamless user access experience to all your applications while freeing your team to work on high-value projects.

Move Beyond the Password

Single sign on is commonly associated with passwords – but it doesn't have to be. In fact, movement is trending solidly away from user-selected passwords towards more frictionless, stronger methods like risk-based, contextual, behavioral, or biometric authentication. These passwordless authentication methods are the perfect technology to apply at the point of SSO.
