Licence Check has introduced a new feature designed to improve efficiency and security with its Davis fleet compliance management system.

The single sign on (SSO) feature gives a company user access to multiple applications and services from a single user login, cutting the need for multiple usernames and passwords for different applications.

Benefits are said to include simplified username and password management, minimisation of password fatigue, improved identity protection and two-factor authentication.

According to Licence Check – part of the Ebbon Group – it means company administrators are able to manage users far more efficiently by permitting and preventing access to multiple applications in a single process.

An additional feature of enabling the new authentication process is that the client will have the Davis platform hosted on a unique sub domain, branded with its own logo and house style to provide a customised interface for a consistent look and feel.

Licence Check senior developer James Povah said: “SSO has become increasingly attractive as the demands for higher and higher degrees of security and productivity are placed on modern applications.

“Some of the greatest challenges of developing a modern application are meeting those security demands and ensuring that these safeguards are not detrimental to usability. SSO brings the best-of-breed levels of authentication to our applications and leaves us free to focus on the application’s core functionality, without compromise.

“As Davis supports large corporations with thousands of users, it became a pressing requirement that the application should not only offer the security of a modern authentication method but also give customers the productivity benefits SSO provides.

“We have collaborated extensively with one particular client who operates a large grey fleet, to ensure that this implementation meets the demands of a large corporate user and we are pleased to now offer this as an option within Davis.”
