Enterprise Directory Services
Your enterprise needs a directory that can securely store and manage access to identities of internal staff, external consumers and suppliers, services and things, whether standalone or integrated with other systems, on-premises or in the cloud. To accomplish this, simple LDAP functionality is not enough. Your enterprise directory will likely require additional functions and capabilities, including:
- Security of access
- Compliance to standards for interoperability – LDAP, X.500, ACP133, XACML
- User Interface for human interaction
The central identity repository of your Enterprise Directory Service serves as the clearinghouse for identity data across the enterprise. It accepts data feeds from multiple identity sources such as the HR system and self-service applications, providing consistent and rationalized view of the identity data between other systems and applications, while supporting data replication for geographic distribution and reliability.
