DeskAlert Active Directory Integration Will Centralize All Resources in One Network
There are businesses that handle hundreds to thousands of employees. In such setups, it’s hard to imagine that internal communication can be easy. However, DeskAlerts has the right tool to help you make relaying messages across thousands of people an easy task using the Active Directory module.
What is the DeskAlerts Active Directory Integration?
DeskAlerts Active Directory or LDAP Integration module enables you to synchronize your DeskAlerts platform with your Active Directory, speeding up the deployment of messages and increasing user control. You have the option to sync individual users, teams, groups, operational units, and even single devices.
What are the main features of the Active Directory Integration for Microsoft?
Active Directory/eDirectory support. The platform enables synchronization across a limitless number of domains. This means all data within the network will be updated consistently across all its ends. Scheduled auto-synchronization is also possible using this.
How can the Active Directory Help in the Corporate Setting?
Microsoft’s Active Directory is a database used by organizations to store all devices, users, and server names within a network. This helps the user in the network share files easier. Through this database, network administrators regulate which users can have full, limited, or no access to the network.
The system of active directories is somehow used in schools’ computer network. Before, students were given login details (username and password) so that they can access the computers for different purposes. Once you get the permission, you will have access to files, folders, and drives in the network. You can do the same thing for all devices in the network, granted that you have the proper credentials for them.
Active directory as a corporate solution
Companies use the active directory as a solution to one of their biggest challenges: internal and external communication. More than 90% of the Fortune 500 companies use this old but still effective technology since most of them still rely on the network system created in the 90s.
Security. Active directory is necessary for maintaining network security by centralizing the storage of network user account details. From this single control hub, the network administrators can see all activities happening in the network in real-time, regulate the flow of information in the network, and make the appropriate actions for any issue.
Regulation of resources. Active directory enables administrators to give permission to users so they can access specific if not all data within the network. Here’s an example: Company A has a directory for important documents concerning human resources. The directory contains employee forms like leave forms, formal complaints or requests, and others.
Since the administrator regulates, he also has the ability to offer access only to read-only copies of documents to users, preventing them from editing, deleting, or transferring original files out of specific locations.
Without the active directory, each computer in your operations base will stand on its own and will have no way to communicate with other computers. Each computer will require its own login details and general communication will eat up time and effort.
