Can you really “have” your cake and “eat” it too? I mean I have cake; I certainly can eat it. Simple, right? Not always. This phrase has created confusion for many years. In the very most literal form of the phrase, you can’t really retain your cake once it has been eaten. But are there moments when we can truly get two good things at the same time?

Single Sign-On: The Icing on the Cake

Say I am an IT manager that has to offer “secure” and “convenient” access to external users. These words seem to be contradictory because one typically does not lead to another. But with NetIQ Access Manager, you can enable secure (the cake) and convenient (the eating) access by offering single sign-on (SSO) capabilities to your external users.

Whether they’re customers or partners, providing external users with the ability to sign in only once to access applications, customer info, and other important resources can improve the following:

  • Collaboration with partners
  • Customer relations
  • User password practices
  • And more
