Give your employees freedom from passwords with Global Shares Single Sign-On (SSO)

One Secure Access for all employees

It’s time to truly enable your workforce with a simple solution to Identity and Access Management (IAM). Global Shares have developed a bespoke solution for companies that increases security and employee productivity with their own Single Sign-On (SSO) tool. This facility gives companies the ability to add their online equity platform as part of an employee’s one-click access to other company web apps in the cloud and behind their companies firewall – via desktops, smartphones and tablets. Global Shares secure SSO authentication procedures ensure that only authorized employees get access to their sensitive equity data.


Eliminate Passwords -What is Global Shares SSO?

Let’s be honest—your employees have way too many passwords. This can lead to a negative impact on employee productivity. Every day they lose time signing on to various applications or get locked out of a system because they can't remember their passwords or forget to reset them. Single Sign-On (SSO) gives a company's employees access to multiple related, but independent software systems. With this property, a user logs in once with their personal credentials and gains access to all systems without being prompted to log in again to each of them. In simple terms, this means that employees input one set of credentials and can access other company applications simultaneously such as their pension, HR, tax and equity without being having to re-enter different login credentials at each login page.


Overview of Global Shares SSO functionality:

With Global Shares (SSO) you can:

  • Eliminate the need for multiple usernames and passwords.
  • Allow users to manage a single set of corporate credentials.
  • Give users one-click access to all their applications from anywhere on any device.

Don’t Write it Down. Eliminate Passwords with Global Shares SSO.


Integration with any intranet, application and partner type

Your Identity and Access Management solution should be flexible and nimble. Many companies system architectures can be very inflexible and often do not easily meet identity needs across web, mobile and API. The Global Shares SSO wizard seamlessly integrates securely with company intranets and all enterprise applications. The SSO facility can also be used for different partner types including:

  • Direct Clients: so that employees can access other employee benefits applications under one authentication method.
  • Brokers: who want employees to have seamless integration and access between their brokerage and equity accounts.
  • Resellers: who are offering a wide range of financial services under one single access point The Global Shares SSO facility creates a secure, open operating environment to support cloud-first initiatives for your business.

SSO Security

Having employees create a new password for every work application creates identities that are often outside of your control and exposes your digital assets to easier cyber attacks. It's human nature for an employee to use the same password for multiple applications - many of which are outside your company's firewall. With the Global Shares SSO capability, your company can decrease this risk by reducing the number of passwords your employee has to use and raise your secure user experience by implementing a market-leading single sign-on (SSO) solution across your enterprise.

With Global Shares (SSO) you can:

  • Give users just one password to remember, and get multi-platform secure authentication.
  • Centralize control over access to all applications with a single dashboard.
  • Easily manage user access, provisioning and de-provisioning.


What about Terminated Employees?

The Global Shares SSO tool gives companies the power to direct terminated employees to an alternative web address once they have exited their application. Depending on their employment status, an active employee is directed to their intranet homepage whereas a terminated employee can be directed to the Global Shares application log-out page where they will no longer be able to gain access to the employee intranet. This control can be swiftly applied with a few clicks ensuring your company sensitive data is securely protected and maintained.
