Passport from Inversoft Ends "Sign-On Creep" for Online Businesses
Companies and Users Alike Often Overwhelmed as Log-Ins Multiply: Passport Changes SSO by Providing Single Access to All Platforms While Also Delivering Single View of User's Activity
DENVER, CO Dec. 8, 2015 -- It's a common malady brought on by online success: as a company's apps, forums, support portals, blogs and communities grow, so do the number of user logins and registrations (not to mention the associated databases). Soon users become frustrated—and enterprises lose sight of each user's interactions across all of their applications and systems.
Inversoft, a software provider focused on the connection between brands and their customers, understands the problem. It has launched Passport, a user management solution that goes beyond conventional SSO (Single Sign-On) software to simplify and expand a brand's ability to serve its customer base.
Easy to implement via a RESTful JSON API, Passport not only allows single sign-on between applications, games, forums, help desks, user accounts and other offerings, but also gives companies a comprehensive view of user activity. It supports messaging in the user's localized language, and offers built-in analytics plus the ability to discipline and reward users as desired.
"For years, companies have been dealing with the limitations of SAML and LDAP protocols for single sign-on. Passport moves the industry forward dramatically," said Brian Pontarelli, founder and CEO of Inversoft. "It offers features and capabilities most other solution providers would never dream of. Best of all, Passport requires only one database to drive a company's entire user management function."
Built for use with desktops, tablets, smartphones and other devices, Passport replaces expensive and time consuming home-grown SSO solutions. It starts with OAuth 2.0, the most advanced authorization standard, then adds a number of proprietary features. Among these is the ability to discipline (mute, ban, suspend) users if necessary, or reward them with special offers or promotions. It also lets customers specify their preferred language so companies can respond with appropriately translated emails and messages.
Passport features native integration with CleanSpeak, Inversoft's tool for profanity filtering and content/user moderation. A full menu of auditing and analytics tools support deep-dive queries; pre-set reports are also available for critical performance metrics.
To maximize security, Passport supports two-factor authentication. As an on-premise solution it conforms to internal security protocols, avoiding the risk presented by hosted, multi-tenant alternatives.
Inversoft's Passport user management solution is available in five pricing options including a free 50-user developer plan. To learn more, visit www.inversoft.com/products/user-database-sso.
