    just as an fyi — the Cloud Security Alliance will be speaking at Gluecon and vendors like Ping Identity (glue sponsor) will be addressing the whole “seamless experience” aspect of this as well.

    Thanks Eric. I will update the post with the information.

    Customers who want a single-sign on experience with SaaS services (i.e. identity federation) are well-advised to use multi-factor authentication.

    I’m surprised you didn’t mention MFA in your post.

    Yes, Multi-factor authentication can work but it is on the other end to ease of use. The product I am planning to talk about is in the middle. Giving the ease of use of single password identification but offering the security closer to multi-factor identification. I am going to talk a bit about multi-factor authentication in that post.
