Nearly every organization is making the move to the cloud, and for many the first step that they take is establishing Office 365 (O365) identities. This allows cloud-based management of some critical services, including email, collaboration tools like Excel or Office, and much more. Unfortunately, this doesn’t include a large amount of additional resources that employees use, like their personal workstations, WiFi connections, cloud-based servers, and varying web and on-prem applications. So how can you extend O365 identities further?
It’s all about the Directory
Accessing those additional resources that O365 can’t touch traditionally has been contingent on the self-hosted management of an on-premise directory like Microsoft Active Directory® or LDAP. However, with the introduction of the cloud identity management platform Directory-as-a-Service®, it is finally possible to actually go “full cloud” with your directory services. With the unified cloud directory, you can centralize all of your employee’s identities and control access to all of the items that they need to perform their jobs. Plus, you don’t need to own the management of a traditional directory in-house.
