About Security Settings

To view and adjust the Security settings tab, you need to have the "Edit Company Security Settings" permission enabled. If you can't see the tab, it probably means you don't have the permission. In that case, kindly reach out to your administrator for help.

Configuring Security Settings

Inside this tab you will find:

  • Single Sign-On (SSO)

Single Sign-On is a convenient authentication method that enables your employees to access multiple applications or systems using a single set of login credentials. It eliminates the need for remembering multiple usernames and passwords, allowing seamless navigation between different systems.

  • Authentication

Authentication methods ensure that only authorized users gain entry. From Factorial, we offer the possibility to enable two-factor authentication (combining multiple credentials).
