“Choosing the Right Active Directory Integration Framework for Your Cloud Application Portfolio” eBook and webinar by Microsoft MVP Available From OneLogin

Brian Desmond, Microsoft MVP for Directory Services and Author of Active Directory, 5th Edition, de-mystifies the deployment of Azure Active Directory Premium with AD FS

San Francisco, CA – April 14, 2014 — OneLogin, the innovator in enterprise identity management, today announced the availability of an insightful eBook by Microsoft Active Directory guru Brian Desmond:hs-brian-desmondChoosing the Right Active Directory Integration Framework for Your Cloud Application Portfolio,” which helps IT leaders understand the infrastructure and skill sets required to extend Active Directory to cloud apps such as Office 365 using Microsoft components such as Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) and Azure Active Directory. Desmond, an expert in identity management solutions and author of Active Directory, 5th Edition, was also featured in an April 2, 2014 webinar, “Extending Identity to the Cloud: ADFS vs. Azure AD vs. OneLogin,” which was co-presented by Collin Hachwi, IT infrastructure manager for DISYS.

Both the eBook and webinar explore the variables involved in choosing the right directory integration approach for organizations adopting cloud solutions, examines the potential cost and complexity of relying solely on Microsoft solutions, and discusses the benefits of third-party providers such as OneLogin.

According to Desmond, cloud adoption is forcing IT professionals to extend a multitude of processes outside of the trust boundary of the corporate network and into untrusted data centers of the companies providing the applications and services:

“The prospect of re-engineering and extending identity management to an ever-evolving set of cloud services and applications is a scary prospect. This is further complicated by the relatively real-time nature of cloud projects. That is, cloud applications can be made available instantly without the traditional burdens of IT infrastructure, and they are typically accessible from anywhere.

“The cost of traditional identity management approaches do not scale when compared to the monthly costs of cloud applications. Addressing identity management in the cloud needs to be done in a cost effective, efficient, and most importantly, sustainable manner.”
