This is a very useful addition to to your Access Control service management options that makes it easy to streamline and automate management actions.

As a reminder, we recently released major enhancements to the Access Control service which make it easy to enable single sign-on (SSO) in web applications.

In addition, we have a promotion period in which we are not charging for Access Control usage for billing periods before January 1st, 2012.
