In the specialized field of digital pathology, managing secure and efficient access to research and analysis tools is essential. Pathcore’s recent integration of Single Sign-On (SSO) significantly improves both the security and user experience of its platform.

Benefits of single sign on for digital pathology workflows

Streamlined Access Across Multiple Applications: One of the primary advantages of SSO is its ability to simplify user access across multiple platforms. By allowing users to authenticate once to access multiple applications, SSO eliminates the hassle of managing multiple login credentials. This boosts productivity and enhances user satisfaction, particularly in research environments where time and accuracy are crucial.

For example, after logging into PathcoreFlow, a researcher could seamlessly switch between viewing digital slides, accessing analytical tools, and retrieving archived data, all without the need for repeated logins.

Enhanced Security: SSO minimizes the risks associated with phishing and password theft. Integrating multi-factor authentication (MFA) further strengthens these defenses, crucial for protecting sensitive research data. In a research setting, reducing login interruptions can also significantly enhance operational efficiency.

For example, at a digital pathology lab, once researchers log in using SSO, they are prompted to verify their identity through Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). This might include a code sent to their mobile device, ensuring that even if a password were compromised, the additional layer of security prevents unauthorized access. This setup not only strengthens security defenses but also enhances operational efficiency by allowing researchers to maintain focus on their work without the interruptions of frequent re-authentication.

Compliance and Data Protection: SSO helps maintain compliance with strict data privacy regulations relevant to research environments. It ensures that identity and access management practices meet industry standards, facilitating the demonstration iof compliance with legal and ethical requirements.

For example, SSO helps streamline the management of access controls and authentication across all data systems. This approach ensures secure logins and restricts access to sensitive data to authorized personnel only. It facilitates smooth transitions between systems, enhances security, and logs every access for compliance. In the event of an audit or breach, the lab can quickly demonstrate its adherence to data protection protocols, making compliance simpler.
