Repsol Energizes Employees With One-click Cloud Access
The IT department chose PingFederate, a full-featured federation server to provide web single sign-on (SSO) for employees. Among the immediate goals were implementing a tool that didn’t require employees to memorize different passwords, ensuring better usability through SSO, and improving security through centralized management of credentials.
One of the main reasons that Repsol chose PingFederate is that it offers a niche, task-oriented solution with a simple architecture and more integration across a greater number of platforms. It also offers a specific service for the cloud and easier deployment than competitor solutions.
Implementing the tool was a fast process. Within three months, Repsol was able to start integrating the various corporate cloud applications, eliminating the need to distribute credentials to third-party systems and enabling all users to use corporate credentials to access the company’s services in the cloud.
The greatest benefit of acquiring PingFederate licenses was the balance between ease of use and security, which was fundamental in enabling the cloud to provide value to the company. Ping Identity helped simplify the installation and integrate it with Repsol’s existing standard authentication methods, as well as those methods used to access more sensitive information. Thanks to this integration, when employees are connected to the corporate network and sign on to their device using their username and password, they can automatically access the cloud service of their choice.
