Our identity and access solutions
Simplify and synchronize your enterprise systems
Managing the lifecycle of a digital identity is far from simple. Typically, digital identities and access entitlements are required in many directories and data stores. It’s hard work creating these entries, keeping them in sync, and then removing or disabling them when required. At best it’s expensive and time-consuming. At worst it’s seriously risky as an organization may fail to comply with regulations or suffer security breaches.
New working practices, services on demand, and proliferation of cloud platforms make improved identity governance more vital than ever.
An efficient and effective identity management platform reduces costs by providing a single foundation for all core identity services. You gain a single view and point of management of a user across multiple systems even if those systems were historically disparate, with manual processes.
With strong authentication tools, suddenly security and compliance is easy! You can enforce and track identities across the whole organization. And by providing self-help tools to manage routine tasks, like changing passwords or resetting PINs, you’ll see the costs of your helpdesk plummet!
- your organization has many users of many different types
- keeping identity and access details up-to-date is a huge and costly task
- you have lots of different IT systems, with custom builds or legacy technologies
- users have multiple IDs and logins
- your helpdesk spends too much time on password management
- user productivity is hampered by password and logon problems
- you need to provide secure access while maintaining ease of use
- you require stringent audit and reporting for compliance purposes
…we can create the identity management solution you need.
Cloud identity and access
With the proliferation of cloud apps, life can get complicated for users with lots of credentials and locations to remember. One well-managed identity for each user, irrespective of the IT landscape that user operates in, must be the Holy Grail!
Azure Active Directory (AAD) offers one identity repository to support many cloud applications, supporting single sign-on and access to many cloud applications from one location. Within AAD there is an identity and access management console – from where cloud applications and user accounts can be managed and users can be assigned access to cloud applications. This can be integrated with your on-premises directory, with a single set of identities for management provisioning (and deprovisioning), and a common set of groups being used to define which users can have access to what.
Organizations already running Microsoft Office 365 may already have access to the service but may not be using it. Let us get you there! We have already provisioned seven million seats into this directory service, so if you need help with this, rest assured we’ve got the know-how, tools and good advice.
Identity and cloud are inextricably linked!
Unless your Active Directory makes sense you have no chance of creating the secure, flexible infrastructure your enterprise needs.
Our directory services solutions are based on Windows Server Active Directory (AD) and its extension in the cloud, Azure AD.
With AD, organizations can centrally manage and track information about users and their privileges. Windows Server 2012 Active Directory Domain Services is the latest release and we can help you make that step from a directory service designed for on-premises delivery of services to one suitable for hybrid IT.
