Executive View: Microsoft ADFS: Active Directory Federation Services – 7112607.07.2014Graham Williamson $266.00
There is a growing demand from organizations for tighter communication and collaboration with external parties and, in some cases, customers. At the same time the rapid growth of cloud services is driving the need for robust and flexible authentication solutions. As the network boundary fades, access management becomes increasingly important for agile organizations and drives the need for more sophisticated solutions. ADFS (Active Directory Federation Services) is Microsoft’s solution for federated authentication to allow users in one domain to log into a resource in another. ADFS creates a trust between a user’s home environment where they maintain their account details and a remote environment where an application resides to which a user requires access.

Microsoft Vendor Report23.06.2008Sebastian Rohr $133.00
Microsoft entered the market of Identity Management providers very late and at this stage adapted its portfolio of in-house tools for user account administration and access privileges to the challenges of managing customers’ heterogeneous IT infrastructures. Since the strategists in Redmond realized the importance of an opening for third parties, Microsoft has been working at full speed on a further development and expansion of its Identity Management solutions, even though the Active Directory always takes centre stage. However, this focus is consistent with Microsoft’s strategy.

Vendor Report: Microsoft01.04.2008Sebastian Rohr $133.00
Microsoft ist sehr spät in den Markt der Identity Management-Anbieter eingestiegen und hat in diesem Zuge sein Portfolio über die im Hause vorhandenen Werkzeuge zur Administration von Benutzerkonten und Zugriffsrechten an die Herausforderungen des Managements heterogener IT-Infrastrukturen der Kunden angepasst. Seit die Strategen in Redmond die Bedeutung einer Öffnung für Dritte erkannt ha-ben, arbeitet Microsoft mit Hochdruck an einer Weiterentwicklung und am Ausbau seiner Identity Mana-gement Lösungen – auch wenn dabei immer das Active Directory im Mittelpunkt steht. Diese Fokussie-rung ist aber konsistent innerhalb der Microsoft-Strategie.
