Directory Services is a database which stores and maintains information about users and resources. Directory services here include directories like user stores, Identity Stores or LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) Directory, which stores user information such as email address, usernames, passwords, user preferences, information about devices and network, and much more. System and network administrators use directory services to onboard users, manage access privileges and monitor and control access to applications and infrastructure resources. For example, when a user accesses an application, that application will reference the directory service to ensure the user is legitimate and has the proper privileges to access and use that application. Directory services are primary elements of an Identity Security strategy. Directory services are used in conjunction with Single Sign-on (SSO), Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), and User Lifecycle Management features in many Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions. A directory service is usually implemented in software and distributed across multiple servers for scalability, performance and resiliency.
Admins can add multiple Active directories/Identity Sources, and use them as a single user store, preventing the need to manage directories in separate places.
Automatically provision and administrate multiple application accounts from one centralized system.
With automatic provisioning within apps, you may improve security by granting different access levels based on an individual role.
Directory Integration provides organizations the option to have just a single domain on which shared account database solutions have to be deployed only once. This makes company-wide deployment faster.
Real-time synchronization reflects a minor attribute change in a single source to all your identity sources at the same time.
Directory services helps in easy management with a single click eliminating manual inconvenience of managing, defining roles, and setting up multiple passwords, thus improving productivity.
A single directory that connects to all your IT resources - G Suite, Active Directory, AWS, HR systems, Databases and other resources of Identity. Directory integration will help you to easily create, import and provision users across multiple platforms at once. You can also extend your connection to devices, applications, servers, networks, and cloud-based infrastructure.
For different sorts of users, such as workers, partners, customers, and end-users, organizations retain several identity sources. You can obtain all of this data in a single view with miniorange Directory Integration. This means you'll be able to see all of the connections/identity sources you've integrated with miniOrange at a glance, and you'll be able to manage user and associated access with ease.
With SCIM and JIT Provisioning, integration with various types of Identity Sources streamlines the creation, updation, onboarding, and offboarding process. miniOrange interacts directly with identity sources, improving the security by setting up access controls based on data received by the identity source, such as a person's department and profile.
Directory Integration solutions consolidate user profiles from multiple identity Sources, modify user attributes across sources, and manage user lifecycle states at once. Additionally, real-time synchronization reflects a minor attribute change in a single source to all your identity sources at the same time. User automatically gets created in a centralized directory during the time of the authentication.
Set user access policies according to the individual user or user groups defined to boost security of your organization. Policies can be defined based on user contexts like user location, IP, device, groups and more such, and enforce these policies with additional security of MFA.
Manage group-based password policies and allow users to self-service password resets with miniOrange, reducing the burden on your IT helpdesk.
Migrate to the cloud directory and store "N number of users," with distinct user categories such as Partners, Suppliers, and End Users. On top of that, each user and user group can have their own set of custom attributes, credentials, and app allocations.
Acquire real-time system logs with Cloud Directory setup to troubleshoot and address any security issues that may arise.You can also use pre-built reports to examine how end customers navigate and use apps and services. You may easily download or export your data to CSV or use an API to access it.
Using a single set of login credentials, secure access to any resource, including web and on-premise applications.
Without having to manage your On-Premises endpoints, connect your users to their On-Premises applications and file servers.
From your browser, you may grant and revoke user access to VPN and Wi-Fi networks. Also secure your account with Multi-Factor Authentication.
