Extend Active Directory to the Cloud

Conformity: With the growing popularity of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), many enterprises are finding that they have separate user authentication procedures for each application. However, companies that already use Microsoft Active Directory (AD) for access control can extend its capabilities to control access to Salesforce.com, Google Apps and other SaaS applications.

This white paper details best practices for centralizing SaaS access control with AD and explains how reduce risks and costs by:

  • Creating normalized role and profile models across AD and SaaS
  • Leveraging those models to integrate AD with SaaS deployments
  • Automating user provisioning and administration processes
