Simplified User Experience

Security is too complicated for end users. It doesn't have to be

End users often see security as an impediment. They just want to do their jobs, not spend valuable time trying to log in to the applications they need.

Simplified User Experience

Security is too complicated for end users.
It doesn't have to be.

The result is all too familiar:

End users often see security as an impediment in their worklife.
They just want to do their jobs, not spend valuable time trying to log in
to the applications they need. The results are all too familiar:

Your end users suffer from password fatigue. They have far too many passwords – each with different rules regarding their complexity – expiring far too frequently.

Your end users write passwords on sticky notes – and then leave them in plain view for anyone to see.

Your end users put dozens of passwords in a spreadsheet that may be password- protected, but probably is not. That leaves all the keys to your crown jewels virtually out in the open – unlocking a literal treasure trove for hackers.

In the end, your users often simply give in to the password fatigue. They just use the same username and password for all their applications – personal and professional​.

When end users take steps like these it only serves to undermine your security efforts. In short, it makes your organization less secure.

It also chews up valuable time, both for end users and IT. Users get frustrated if they can’t get at the resources they need, and are forced to waste time resetting passwords. IT has to step in and help when the auto-resets don’t work as expected. Ever take a call from a CEO who’s locked out of an app? Not fun.

When end users cut corners like this it only
serves to undermine your security efforts.
In reality, those shortcuts make your
organization much more vulnerable.

These workarounds also chew up valuable time, both for end users and IT. Users get frustrated if they can’t get at the resources they need, and are forced to waste time resetting passwords. IT has to step in and help when the auto-resets don’t work as expected.

Ever take a call from a CEO who’s locked out of an application right before a critical board meeting? Not a call you want to get.

Total Access Control offers a simple, two-part fix:

Give your users a single gateway
to all the applications they need

Total Access Control gives each end user their own, dynamic user portal that lists all the applications the user is authorized to access. To access an app, simply click on it. It doesn’t get any easier.

TAC gives each of your end users their own dynamic user portal that shows all the applications that user is authorized to access. To access an application, all they have to do is simply click on it. It doesn’t get any easier.

Ease the pain of your users by
ending the password nightmare

Passwords can be the bane of any employee’s existence, especially knowledge workers who employ dozens of applications day-to-day – the same people who are likely doing the most valuable work for your organization.

Forgotten passwords are also costly for IT. Gartner estimates 20% to 50% of all help desk calls are for password resets, and Forrester Research estimates the average cost of each password reset is $70.

EASE THE PAIN OF YOUR USERS
END THE PASSWORD NIGHTMARE

Passwords can be the bane of any employee’s existence, especially knowledge workers who employ dozens of applications day-to-day – the same people who are likely doing the most valuable work for your organization.

Forgotten passwords are also costly for IT. Gartner estimates 20% to 50% of all help desk calls are for password resets, and Forrester Research estimates the average cost of each password reset is $70.

Having multiple devices, which most workers do, only compounds the problem. Maybe a user changes a password when using a laptop, then finds the password saved in his tablet or smart phone no longer works – and has to remember what the new one is before getting locked out.
