3 IAM Considerations When Implementing Google Apps


To populate user identities into Google Apps, Google Apps for Work requires integration into the enterprise identity repository via Google Apps Directory Services (GADS). GADS is used to replicate the existing Active Directory or LDAP compliant user identities, and access permissions to the Google Apps domain. IT organizations attempting to secure Google Apps with GADS are often challenged by its limited scalability, delayed on and off-boarding, and lack of desktop Single Sign-On (SSO).
