As you add more software applications to your business, it becomes more difficult for your IT team to keep up with that ever-changing list of employees.
You don’t need to drive your IT team crazy by onboarding new hires with a multitude of using their credentials for every application. Utilizing an active directory makes it just a few clicks to get synchronized with your visitor management, hoteling/ Office booking solution, and almost any other application.
What is an active directory and how does it work?
Active Directory is an integral part of any modern business. But what exactly is it? And how does it work?
Active Directory is a service that allows users to log in to their computers and access resources from anywhere on the network. It’s basically a directory service—it stores information about users and computers so that you can connect them with each other. When someone logs in using Active Directory (or AD), they’re able to access resources like printers or files that are stored on the network.
It’s important for businesses to use AD because it makes it easier for employees to get their jobs done. For example, if your employees need access to a file that’s stored on another computer in the building, they can easily find it by looking through their directory listing. This saves time and resources while improving efficiency.
AD has several components:
– The domain controller (DC) stores information about users, groups, and other objects on your network in its database; this database is called AD DS (Active Directory Domain Services).
DCs are also responsible for authenticating user logins on your network by checking credentials against a list of approved users; if an employee has been granted access rights through AD DS.
You can integrate MyLobby Visitor Management & Hoteling App with Active Directory to enable enhanced security for your business.
