What is Directory-as-a-Service

DAAS the modern adaptation of traditional Microsoft Active Directory (AD) and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP). It is a cloud-based service optimized to authenticate, authorize and manage user access to IT resources across any device type, on any operating system, with any IT or Web-based applications located on-premise or in the cloud. As a simplified, yet more powerful and economical approach to a user directory, DaaS changes the game for IT admins. Organizations are struggling with the costs and management overhead of maintaining on-premise AD or LDAP in the face of increased IT complexity. These legacy solutions are losing out to new cloud-based alternatives that are streamlined, secure, and easy-to-use. DaaS solutions support all major OS platforms and are designed to control and manage user access to both internal and external IT resources such as servers and applications. In short, a cloud-based directory makes it easier for admins to connect their employees to the IT resources they need, wherever it exists.

Connect employee identities to their systems, apps, and networks.
