E-SSOM: Fast User Switching
Quickly Login to Workstations with Fast User Switching
In many organizations, a PC is used by several people, such as a kiosk. In order not to lose valuable time logging in Windows and launching applications, organizations often use a generic user account. This is not secure since users get to unjustly access to certain information, which can be an issue when it comes to audits and compliance.
With Fast User Switching (FUS) a workstation and its applications are readily available.
This feature allows users to log on and off from public computers quickly. When users log on using Fast User Switching, applications that they require can be automatically started and logged on to. When users log off, E-SSOM can automatically log off from the applications and/or close them. The authentication can be simplified and strengthened by combining Fast User Switching with a smart card. In this way, users can obtain access to applications by inserting their smart card for access. They can log out by removing their smart card, so that the computer becomes available for the next user and this guarantees a strong authentication process.
