SAP Strengthens Secure Authentication and Data Handling with New Version of SAP Single Sign-On

WALLDORF—SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced general availability of the latest version of the SAP Single Sign-On application. The latest version delivers improvements such as expanding the existing coverage for mobile and cloud scenarios, simplified implementation, and continuous improvement of security protocols based on market requirements.
