Single password sign on for Carahsoft

Passlogix : 22 July, 2008  (Application Story)
v-GO SSO from Passlogix enables automatic and secure sign on using a single network logon
Carahsoft Technology has announced the addition of Passlogix's v-GO Sign-on Platform to its GSA schedule. The agreement gives Carahsoft's public sector clients access to secure, best-of-breed enterprise single sign-on (ESSO) capabilities that eliminate the need for end users to create, remember, manage and update multiple application passwords.

v-GO SSO (Single Sign-On), the cornerstone of the v-GO platform, automatically and securely signs the user into any number of Windows, mainframe or Web applications after a single network logon without additional user-submitted identification or authentication. This reduces password-related security gaps, administrative overhead, user frustration and help desk costs. Six v-GO add-on products include modules that extend v-GO's single sign-on capabilities to any form of strong authentication or to kiosk environments, manage shared passwords within the ESSO infrastructure, and permit self-service reset of forgotten Windows passwords.

v-GO suite has sold more than 10 million licenses to both private and public sector organizations around the world, including the world's largest ESSO implementation with more than 200,000 users and 7,000 applications. Rapid wizard-based deployment enables implementation in months with minimal professional services.

"The proliferation of application passwords presents the same administrative and security challenges for government agencies as it does in the corporate world. Passlogix's enterprise single sign-on platform provides proven password management capabilities that also increase security, improve user productivity and provide a rapid return on investment," said Craig Abod, Carahsoft president. "v-GO is also proven in the government environment, so agencies can deploy it with confidence that it will deliver what it promises."

With the addition of Passlogix, Carahsoft's Intelligence Solutions team now encompasses more than 20 vendors, providing Department of Defence, intelligence community and civilian agencies with a single point of access to the latest technologies.

"Carahsoft has an impressive reputation as a government VAR and a strong and wide-ranging product portfolio. Their decision to add v-GO reflects both the growing awareness of ESSO's value in controlling password overload and v-GO's status as the market leader in the space," said Sean Harris, Passlogix Vice President of Business Development. "We expect this partnership to help us continue building our presence in the public sector."
