The trend in businesses is moving towards a single browser tool on portable devices to access cloud applications which would increase portability but at the same time would introduce security vulnerabilities. This resulted in the need for several layers of password authentications for cloud applications access. Single Sign-On (SSO) is a tool of access control of multiple software systems. This research explores the effects and implications of SSO solutions on cloud applications. We utilize a new framework of different attributes developed by acquiring IT experts' opinions through extensive interviews to expand significant strategic parameters at the workplace. The framework was further tested using data collected from a sample of 400+ users in the UAE.
