Intermedia Launches Free Single Sign-On App for Its Cloud Services

Furthers Company's Commitment to Integrated Cloud Services for SMBs

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2011) - Intermedia, the world's largest Microsoft Exchange hosting provider, today launched a free Single Sign-On application for its customers. Rather than logging into separate cloud services, Intermedia users can log in once through the secure Single Sign-On application. The application then provides one-click access to a user's services, such as Microsoft Outlook email, Outlook Web Access, document management, and instant messaging.

"It's not enough for a cloud service provider to simply offer a breadth of communications and productivity services," says Jonathan McCormick, chief operating officer, Intermedia. "Our customers are asking us to integrate best-of-breed options. An integrated approach enables an account administrator to easily manage different services from the same interface -- our HostPilot® Control Panel. And it enables users to benefit from productivity options like Single Sign-On."

Intermedia Single Sign-On:

  • Saves time by eliminating the need to re-enter login information for each service one uses
  • Eliminates the need to remember URLs for Intermedia-based web applications
  • Offers a simplified way to download and configure Outlook
  • Provides an easy way to change one's password
  • Enables access to Intermedia's My Services, from which users can adjust settings and request additional Intermedia services

Intermedia Single Sign-On is available for Windows 7 and Vista operating systems and is free of charge for Intermedia customers. It can be downloaded from HostPilot Control Panel or My Services.
