1Password, the frontrunner in human-centric security and privacy, recently announced the launch of Unlock with Single Sign-On (SSO).

Steve Won, Chief Product Officer at 1Password, said, "Securing employees at scale is no small task. At 1Password, we believe that the foundation of enterprise security is secure employees, and we're driven by the principle that the safe thing must be easy by default." He added, "SSO plays a central role in enterprise security. Unlock with SSO was designed with a trusted device model, so that even if a user's identity provider credentials are compromised, 1Password ensures attackers won't be able to access customers' vault."
