Single Sign-On (SSO)

What is SSO?

SSO (Single sign-on) is an authentication method that allows users to login with one set of credentials across multiple systems.

This means that, rather than login using a dedicated CMap username and password, instead you login with your Microsoft365 credentials.


What are the user benefits?

The most obvious benefit is there’s one less username and password to remember.

SSO can also save time and speed up the login process. Provided you’re signed into Microsoft365 (meaning you’re protected by the rigour of Microsoft’s authentication), CMap enables you to login with a single click.


What are the company benefits?

Beyond the employee benefits above, enhanced security. SSO gives you centralised access controls.

It also reduces the likelihood of credential misuse e.g. a user wouldn’t be able to share their login credentials for CMap (or other apps using SSO with Microsoft365) without compromising their entire Microsoft365 access.

Want to discuss adding Single Sign-On (SS) to your current CMap plan.. please contact your CMap Account Manager.
