CardsOnline works with SURFconext as Single Sign-On (SSO) solution

The time of only using one application for educational institutions is over. Nowadays, educational institutions work with multiple applications and systems, and have a need for simplicity, security and efficiency. When employees need to remember multiple passwords to login to all these different systems, frustration and unsafe situations arise.  A solution for this situation is to use Single Sign-On (SSO).

What is Single Sign-On?

With Single Sign-On (SSO), a user only logs in once to gain access to multiple applications and systems. Organizations use SSO to give easy and more secure access to all their different systems.
