Your organization is geared towards peak efficiency. You have streamlined processes in every department to maintain your competitive edge. Your IT team implements new technologies, and your creative team uses the cutting-edge software.
Your employees work on cloud-based applications like Adobe Creative Cloud and Acrobat DC. This encourages collaboration and increases productivity. But if you have not enabled Single Sign-on (SSO) for Adobe, you’re putting roadblocks on your team’s efficiency. You’re also leaving gaps in the security and control of your digital content.
SSO simplifies logins for your users and protects files with top-of-the-line security. It empowers your IT team to manage all logins and permissions with ease. It also gives you control over your company’s Intellectual Property (IP).
To take advantage of SSO, you have to upgrade to an enterprise subscription license for Adobe. Here are the top three benefits of making the switch now:
Skyrocket User Creativity in One Easy Step
On a daily basis, your users have to log on to every Adobe application they’re using. They enter many usernames and passwords, which prevents them from beginning work immediately. If someone forgets a password, it impacts your entire team’s efficiency. IT will have to reset and other collaborators will have to wait.
SSO eliminates this problem altogether. It allows your users to access all Adobe applications with their existing credentials. They will only use one ID to access 200 other enterprise services and applications.
SSO will also allow your employees to download any app or service from the Creative Cloud without IT’s help. SSO ensures everyone on your team is using the latest version of all applications. It protects all files and information in-transit and at rest. This creates a secure environment for your teams to collaborate. It also results in increased creative expression and efficiency.
SSO will grant you access to Enterprise ID and Federated ID. They automatically transfer ownership of all user-produced data to you. This ensures that your organization owns all assets stored in the cloud. SSO will also identify and authenticate users who access corporate software and assets. Over 80% of large companies have already adopted Federated ID for this purpose.
SSO keeps track of all users and automatically terminates access to former employees. It even autonomously re-assigns licenses, decreasing your IT team’s workload.
You also receive highest levels of security and control with your enterprise license. It uses Transport Layer Security (TLS) to encrypt assets in-transit and protects assets at rest with an Amazon Web Services (AWS) encryption key.
AWS hosts both Acrobat DC and Creative Cloud for the enterprise. It stores your content on many devices in multiple data centers. Your network traffic also undergoes data verification to prevent corruption and ensure integrity.
SSO will enable your IT team to deliver a consistent experience to your employees. It will allow your IT team to seamlessly generate and manage accounts. This will lower your operational costs and improve onboarding and exit times. SSO will also enable your IT team to simplify roll-out and management of licenses to end-users.
The Adobe Enterprise Dashboard can manage large volumes of users. It also enables your IT team to manage and configure licenses according to user groups.
Your enterprise subscription license gives you access to Adobe’s dedicated support team. You enjoy onboarding phone calls and 24/7 support for your IT teams and end users. You can track support cases and receive unlimited Expert Services sessions. You also get upgrades at no extra cost and can reduce risks by ensuring automatic compliance.
SSO is your key to unlocking the true potential of your users, your IT teams, and your organization. The only way to engage it is by upgrading to an enterprise subscription license for Adobe. A majority of companies have already made the switch and are enjoying its benefits.
Recently, a company hit turbulence after IT began lagging behind in license authentication. The team also had difficulty ensuring users were running a standard software build.
The company solved the problem by moving to an enterprise license and engaging SSO. This made the management of user licenses simple. It allowed IT to run authentication through their internal network. It also enabled IT to release updates without end-user interaction.
You too can take similar advantage of SSO by upgrading to an enterprise subscription license for Adobe. You will get volume discounts starting at 10 licenses. You can also get greater savings by buying Acrobat DC and Creative Cloud in one agreement. Talk to a Softchoice Adobe specialist to learn about making the move to Adobe Enterprise Subscriptions.
