Taking the Complexity Out of Single Sign-On with Active Directory

Providing SSO across applications deployed on heterogeneous platforms can lead IT organizations to implementing a complex set of interconnections between disparate solutions that are fragile and not easily adapted to support emerging technology and devices such as smart phones and tablets.
