  • Ensuring that identities are kept up to date based on changes in Active Directory or your human resources system.
  • Provisioning groups to applications that support them.
  • Monitoring and auditing who has been provisioned into your applications.
  • Matching existing identities between systems and allowing for easy integration, even when users already exist.
  • Creating alerts for critical events and allowing for Log Analytics integration where you can define custom alerts to suit your business needs.

What is Active Directory?

Active Directory is a Microsoft technology that provides a directory service for Windows domain networks. It is a centralised database that stores information about users, devices, and other resources in your organisation, enabling administrators to manage access to these resources in a more secure and efficient way. Administrators can create and manage user accounts, assign permissions, and set up security policies making it easier to control access to sensitive information and resources.

It can be used to manage devices in your network allowing administrators to deploy software, configure settings, and apply security policies to all devices in the domain. This helps to ensure that all devices are properly configured and up-to-date with the latest security patches.

Why Use Active Directory?

Active Directory has several benefits for organisations including:

Centralised management:

Allow administrators to manage users, devices, and other resources from a single, centralised location.

Improved security:

Leverage advanced security features, such as password policies, that help to protect your organisation's data. Employees that leave your organisation can have access to your systems automatically removed.

Reduced administrative overhead:

Automating routine tasks, such as software deployment and security updates can help to reduce the workload on your IT staff.


It’s designed to support large organisations with thousands of users and computers.

Better communication:

Clearer and more up to date user information makes targeting and automation (such as employee onboarding) a breeze.
