Today's applications may run behind the firewall on the LAN/corporate data center, as a hosted service or streamed and can be delivered from external cloud-based networks. Additionally, today's workforce is highly distributed; using a multitude of different access devices, yet organizations must provide access to critical corporate resources in a variety of ways. As a result, implementing enterprise wide single sign-on can be a challenge, especially when spanning multiple security domains and distributed resource portals including, Cloud services, partner web portals and others that may each require different digital proof of identity.
