By 2020, Gartner predicts that 90 percent of organizations will adopt hybrid identity infrastructures. Hybrid Active Directory (AD) environments let you leverage the powerful on-premises AD while harnessing the capabilities of the cloud-based AD and enhancing productivity and flexibility. A well-managed and well-integrated environment that consists of the traditional on-premises AD, as well as the cloud-based Azure AD, is the goal of hybrid AD.
A crucial, yet routine administrative task is the provisioning and deprovisioning of users. User provisioning involves setting up user accounts in both on-premises and cloud environments, and configuring user attributes, mailboxes, home folders, etc. Disabling and deleting user accounts, as well as revoking licenses and access to all cloud apps, are tasks performed as part of deprovisioning at the end of a user account’s life cycle.
However, faced with a complicated mix of processes, scripts, and the limited capabilities of native tools, you could end up spending the majority of your time simply trying to keep things running, without improving the efficiency of carrying out these tasks.
Opting for a single tool that provides a secure approach to user provisioning and deprovisioning across AD, Azure AD, Office 365, Exchange, G Suite, etc. is a good choice. The tool should not just allow for easy and seamless operation between on-premises AD and Azure AD, but also keep data access secure for authorized users.
In our white paper, “Provisioning and deprovisioning users efficiently in hybrid Active Directory,” we’ll take a look at how to:
Seamlessly provision multiple users across platforms in hybrid AD from a single console.
Disable and deprovision user accounts, revoke licenses, and remove user associated files.
Ensure security, consistency, and efficiency while performing routine administrative tasks.
