The adoption of cloud-based services is gathering pace. Indeed, a recent survey conducted by CDW found that 39% of organisations are “implementing or maintaining cloud solutions”, a figure that is up 28% on two years ago. The growth in cloud computing is, however, giving rise to a proliferation of inadequate passwords that are weakening IT security and placing users, systems and data at increased risk.
Single Sign-On (SSO) solutions can be highly effective in addressing this challenge. They simplify user access and strengthen password security, but, by themselves, they are rarely enough to ensure the full protection so vital in cloud environments.
