What is Moonshot?
The Benefits of Moonshot
- Reduce the amount of usernames and passwords you have to remember.
Single Sign On to all of the services you use.
More secure authentication to the services that you care about, managed by your home organisation.
Preserve your privacy when using services by not releasing personally identifiable information - unless you want to.
- Reduce the cost and effort of administration - no credentials to manage for all of your users.
- Secure and timely authentication - credentials are linked back to the user's home organisation so are up to date and revoked instantly. and because these credentials are used by that user for many things they will take good care of them.
- Flexible authorisation - manage who gets access to what and when in whichever way best meets your needs.
