For many years, Microsoft Active Directory® (AD) has been synonymous with enterprise-grade directory services. While AD’s effectiveness has waned, there are still plenty of organizations who either want to keep on-prem infrastructure or who have AD too ingrained into their infrastructure to remove it. Often IT organizations with AD must employ third party tools in order to connect to non-Microsoft and cloud resources. Add-ons and workarounds are required to effectively manage Linux and Mac systems, SaaS, IaaS, or anything else that AD can’t natively touch. But leveraging a suite of unique third party vendors to bolster your core directory is both cumbersome and expensive. Fortunately there is another option. With JumpCloud® Directory-as-a-Service®, you can use our AD Bridge feature and extend Active Directory credentials to all of these services, all through one web-based platform.
