Use Case

ACME Corporation's large workforce needs to access different enterprise resources and services. They have implemented Check Point Infinity Portal as a centralized platform to manage user access to these resources. But the management of user authentication for each resource has become a cumbersome and time-consuming procedure, especially as employees often forget their usernames and passwords. Moreover, there are security concerns related to managing multiple sets of login credentials for each user.

To simplify the authentication procedure and make security better, ACME Corporation decides to implement SSO authentication with Check Point Infinity Portal. By integrating with an Identity Provider such as Okta, they can centrally manage and control user authentication and authorization. This means that employees can log in with a single set of credentials (username and password) to access all enterprise resources and services, which removes the necessity to remember different login details for each resource.

Moreover, with SSO authentication, ACME Corporation can implement more security measures such as Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) to make sure that user access is secure. This enhances the overall security posture of the organization and is a better user experience by eliminating the necessity of for multiple sets of login credentials.

In summary, SSO authentication with Check Point Infinity Portal allows ACME Corporation to simplify the authentication procedure, make security better, and enhance user experience.
