Solving the IT “Identity Crisis”
Chances are, you probably use G Suite™ (a.k.a. Google® Apps) for your business needs. G Suite is now used in over 5 million businesses, enabling teams to work together seamlessly from anywhere.
But throw in all of the new devices being used in the workplace and SaaS-based apps, and IT has a bit of an ‘identity crisis’: their work is all over the cloud, but their directory service (generally Microsoft® Active Directory®) is firmly rooted on-premises.
On the other end of the spectrum, some organizations don’t even have a directory. This approach may be “cloud-forward”, but it also means they don’t have a centralized way of managing and authenticating identities – which is hugely problematic for IT.
The Modern Office
There is a solution to this madness – and it’s so new that you probably haven’t ever heard of it.
We’re talking about a way to have one central identity for your employees when they are using G Suite. How does it work? Is it right for your business? We collaborated with the teams at Spanning and Bitium to help you answer those questions. In our new eBook, called The Modern Office: How Google Apps Solves the IT Identity Crisis, we show you how to optimize your business in these four core areas:
- Security and Compliance
- Devices and Servers
- Directory Services
Wouldn’t it be nice to scale your company with an increased Google functionality?
With our new eBook, which you can download here, you can.
For more questions on increased Google functionality, be sure to drop us a note. We would love to answer any questions you might have on the IT “identity crisis,” and, of course, consider signing up for a free JumpCloud® account. It comes with ten users free forever, and all of our features are available.
