Administrators have turned to centralized Identity Access Management (IAM) systems to administer password controls as the scope of password management has expanded. With Single Sign-On (SSO) functionality becoming a “must have” for enterprise application systems, the problem of effectively leveraging an SSO for PeopleSoft continues to be an issue.
PeopleSoft lacks the SAML technology necessary to communicate with an ID provider. Simulating this functionality requires customizations
Either creating customizations to simulate SAML communication or building an SSO from scratch adds significant complexity as customizations are typically costly, fragile, and require frequent maintenance
Enforcing strong password parameters in PeopleSoft is not possible unless you are leveraging your ID provider. Otherwise users may have multiple, weak passwords (for various PSFT applications) that are easy to crack.
Manually provisioning a database as users come and go in an organization is extremely time consuming
Login screens can halt a user’s progression through a workflow. Users waiting on password resets is a significant time waster in every organization
Appsian is the only vendor offering an SSO solution with native SAML support, so organizations can leverage their current SAML ID providers without requiring customizations
Configuration is browser-based and leverages a rules engine so administration is simple and streamlined. In addition, PeopleSoft account provisioning can be performed for streamlined maintenance.
The powerful rules engine allows you to control access based on location, role, and more – giving administrators the ability to enforce a strong, uniform access policy.
