Delivering SSO: Postal Service simplifies passwords

Nobody likes passwords: not employees, and certainly not infosec teams. Not only are passwords often difficult to remember (leading to employees writing them down and possibly lose them -- a huge security risk), but they are also cumbersome due to the multiple logins each user has for numerous systems and applications in an enterprise environment, let alone their personal one.

In this month's Information Security magazine, learn how the U.S. Postal Service went from 10 passwords per user to just one, thanks to enterprise single sign-on.

Also read about patching vulnerabilities -- and keeping them sealed; evaluating security information management systems; outsourcing security services and much more!
