OnWire Releases New OnCloud® Identity and Access Management Platform Integration with Microsoft Active Directory

OnWire announces a new release for OnCloud®, a FedRAMP Ready Identity and Access Management Platform. The release features a directory services integration with Microsoft Active Directory (AD), and gives OnCloud customers the option to easily synchronize their existing on-premise Active Directory with OnCloud.

For most organizations, Microsoft AD is the authoritative user directory for managing users, groups, and access to key business applications, such as Outlook and Sharepoint. When combined with OnCloud’s Directory Services, customers can now keep sensitive PII (such as usernames and passwords) on-premise while leveraging a single AD credential to access cloud services and applications. OnCloud’s Directory Services can provision and synchronize users and groups in real-time while adhering to defined policies – ensuring that changes being made on the target AD systems are compliant. This integration provides OnCloud capability to automatically correct non-compliant operations in real-time or alert a system owner when unauthorized permissions are granted.

OnCloud’s Directory Services allows customers to leverage AD user attributes to provide fine-grained authorization and single-sign-on to applications – ensuring that employees don’t need to maintain and remember multiple usernames and passwords. OnCloud also offers self-service password resets – enhancing efficiency by reducing calls to help desks and enabling employees to reset their own forgotten password. By utilizing OnCloud’s Directory Services, customers can simplify the deployment and management of Identity and Access Management workloads both on-premise and in the cloud while extending security capabilities (such as strong authentication and federated single sign-on) to its users.
