We are excited to announce we’ve added a Single Sign-On login feature to our dashboard. Quant takes security very seriously. Adding an SSO login is one of our many security measures that includes our Quant Web Application Firewall (WAF), rate limiting, DDoS protection and basic authentication.

What is Single Sign-On?

Single Sign-On (SSO) is an authentication service that allows people to use one login, such as a username and password, to access multiple applications or systems. By simplifying the login process, SSO improves user experience and minimizes password fatigue. Additionally, Single Sign-On improves security by allowing organizations to centrally manage authentication policies, which can reduce the risk of password-related breaches.

As an analogy, imagine you bought an old mansion that has locks on the doors for all its rooms. You can think of SSO being like having a master key that works for all the doors, so you don’t need to use each individual key to get in. This makes access easier, and now you don’t need to carry all the individual keys around with you.
