Single Sign-On is a feature added to help users of large firms log on to AbacusLaw faster and with more security.
If a user is on a Microsoft Active Directory network, Single Sign-On can be implemented for that user so that AbacusLaw uses the Active Directory information to authenticate the user into AbacusLaw automatically when launched. This helps reduce complexity for large firms with multiple users with multiple passwords and saves time for the users. Also, since Active Directory could be set up to use dual factor authentication, security is increased using Single Sign-On.
Passwords still need to be configured for all AbacusLaw users when using Single Sign-On. SingleSign-On does not replace the need for AbacusLaw passwords – it allows users to launch AbacusLaw without having to enter their Abacus credentials.
When using Single Sign-On, passwords are used in AbacusLaw when trying to switch users or when Single Sign-On is not enabled for certain users. Note that passwords changed in Active Directory are never stored in AbacusLaw; therefore, users must use their original AbacusLaw password if SingleSign-On is not enabled or detected.
