Users of WebsitePanel 2.0, a provisioning platform for Cloud and IT Service Providers, can now use Identity Syncronizer® to integrate and synchronize their identity information from Microsoft’s Active Directory to WebsitePanel 2.0. for purposes of account provisioning and changes.
WebsitePanel Connector, this new integration, announced today by InnerApps (http://www.idsync.com) dramatically improves the ability of Cloud and IT Service Providers who use the new version of WebsitePanel platform to automate the provisioning of their hosted applications, providing quick on-boarding of new customers. It provisions user access and privileges by leveraging the end-customer’s Active Directory system as a centralized cloud identity management system.
Identity Synchronizer® – Two Way Integration with Active Directory
A user’s corporate identity, stored within Active Directory, is synchronized with WebsitePanel bi-directionally maintaining all critical information such as name, location, phone, application and service configuration information updated with each change made at the end-customer.
IDSync® manages the on-boarding, bulk provisioning, password management, and synchronization of the data between WebsitePanel security mechanisms and the centralized store of user’s identity and provisioning information in Active Directory. This provides WebsitePanel administrators with a quick and easy way to eliminate client adoption barriers and manage user and resource information on an on-going basis while eliminating the need to maintain the same data in two systems.
Service Provider Brand – Directly within Active Directory
Identity Syncronizer® extends the standard Active Directory property pages to provide centralized management of a User’s credentials, information, and application configuration information in a single location. This is accomplished by inserting application specific tabs within the Active Directory management tools. With Identity Syncronizer® the Service or Cloud provider extends their brand presence INSIDE the customer site by having a fully branded tab, complete with logo, for their product offerings directly within the customer’s Active Directory environment.
Identity Management – Self-service, Monitoring & Audit
In addition, Identity Syncronizer® features full featured client-side self-service, auditing and reporting features for each connected application. Using the self-service system the user can maintain their own basic contact and personal information. Additionally, users can reset their own password by authenticating with a set of pre- registered security questions. Further, all security and provisioning changes made to the user account, application privileges, security groups, and even passwords are logged for compliance and auditing purposes. With the addition of the WebsitePanel connector, Identity Syncronizer extends these same features and services to end-users.
