The important task of the IT administrators is to retain the assets efficiently in the enterprise networks, and the Active Directory (AD) can help them in doing that.
FREMONT, CA: One of the essential jobs of IT administrators is to maintain their assets in the enterprise networks effectively. They must keep a tight check on the user’s authorizations in the networks and obtain permission. When the companies expand, they also develop their network, which surges their threat surfaces. The data breaches and compliance lapses occur, mainly because of misconfigurations or failure while implementing authenticated, authorized, and accounting (AAA) policies. Such a situation can even become difficult to keep track of the orphaned accounts and countering the growth of privilege. Therefore, the management of Active Directory (AD) is relevant because of the complicated and evolving threat environment. Here are some of the benefits of applying an active directory environment.
An Improved Representation of the Network
The structure of the active directory offers a transparent picture of the network. The active directory also permits the admins to centrally managed utilizers and authorizations, irrespective of the extent of the network. The centralized method of management is the primary reason due to which IT administrators can apply Active Directory.
Single Sign-On Capability
It becomes difficult for a person to memorize various passwords and usernames for the servers. Furthermore, the situation can become more complicated if the number of users increases. So, if a domain controller is added, it will allow the users to enter the username and password on one server and get access to other servers without providing the details again.
Effective Management of Trust Relationships
The active directory also utilizes the trust relationships between several domains. Therefore, the two-way trust relationship can happen among the two objects. If there is a two-way trust relationship among the two websites, users can utilize resources on both the websites with the help of a username and password.
