Intermedia Launches Free Single Sign-On App for Its Cloud Services
(Update May, 2014: This blog post describes our desktop single sign-on tool. Intermedia now has an additional service: Intermedia AppID for cloud app single sign-on.)
Furthers company’s commitment to integrated cloud services for SMBs
Intermedia, the world’s largest Microsoft Exchange hosting provider, today launched a free Single Sign-On application for its customers. Rather than logging into separate cloud services, Intermedia users can log in once through the secure Single Sign-On application. The application then provides one-click access to a user’s services, such as Microsoft Outlook email, Outlook Web Access, document management, and instant messaging.
“It’s not enough for a cloud service provider to simply offer a breadth of communications and productivity services,” says Jonathan McCormick, chief operating officer, Intermedia. “Our customers are asking us to integrate best-of-breed options. An integrated approach enables an account administrator to easily manage different services from the same interface – our HostPilot® Control Panel. And it enables users to benefit from productivity options like Single Sign-On.”
Intermedia Single Sign-On:
- Saves time by eliminating the need to re-enter login information for each service one uses
- Eliminates the need to remember URLs for Intermedia-based web applications
- Offers a simplified way to download and configure Outlook
- Provides an easy way to change one’s password
- Enables access to Intermedia’s My Services, from which users can adjust settings and request additional Intermedia services
Intermedia Single Sign-On is available for Windows 7 and Vista operating systems and is free of charge for Intermedia customers. It can be downloaded from HostPilot Control Panel or My Services.
