SB005 Uses Single Sign-On (SSO)

Single Sign-On reduces login friction and can encourage stronger password/passphrase use.

Why is it important?

Single Sign On helps reduce the number of login details someone has to remember. This can encourage better password building.

Attackers will value these SSO accounts as they have access to multiple services. It's important these accounts are well protected. Besides using a strong password/passphrase, multi-factor authentication and automatic lockout after a number of failed login attempts will also help improve account security.
