McAfee offers one-time passwords for single sign-on cloud service

McAfee Thursday announced its providing a one-time password function as part of its Cloud Single Sign On service for more securely provisioning and de-provisioning hundreds of cloud-based services for enterprise use.

McAfee Cloud Single Sign On can be integrated with enterprise identity repositories to provision cloud-based services that include Box.net, Twitter, Success Factors, Salesforce and Dropbox, among many more, says Matt Glenn, vice president of product management in McAfees network security business unit.
