Accelerates Provisioning via IDSync® Active Directory Connector to Parallels Automation Platform
Perrysburg, Ohio Feb 05, 2013
LuxCloud and IDSync®, today announced that LuxCloud partners and customers can now use Identity Syncronizer™ to integrate customer identity information from Microsoft’s Active Directory via the use of a new Identity Connector for LuxCloud Business Communications services. This new integration, announced today by InnerApps (www.IDSync.com) and LuxCloud dramatically improves their ability to quickly on-board new customers and provision user’s access and privileges within their hosting environment by further leveraging Parallels® Operations Automation to integrate with Microsoft’s Active Directory system as a centralized source of identity data.
DELIVERS ON THE PROMISE OF SaaS – SIMPLE, FAST, EASY
“LuxCloud sales partners want to add new customers to their platform as quickly as possible to maximize their revenue.” said Marco Houwen, Founder and CEO of LuxCloud. “Our goal is to ensure that sales partners are fully integrated into our marketplace with minimal effort. With the IDSync® Connector for LuxCloud, we’re simplifying the administrative time and efforts making it easier for our partners to work with their end-user’s identity information both during sign up and regular maintenance.”
LUXCLOUD ENHANCED USER PROVISIONING REDUCES PARTNER AND CUSTOMER COSTS AND IMPROVES SATISFACTION
LuxCloud customers and partners will find the user provisioning features of IDSync® especially valuable as it will reduce IT costs, & user’s downtime due to real-time synchronization of password and identity maintenance data. A user’s corporate identity, stored within Active Directory, is synchronized with LuxCloud applications via Parallels Operations Automation bi-directionally keeping all critical information such as name, location, phone, application and service configuration information updated with each change made at the end-customer.
EASY ON-BOARDING, BULK PROVISIONING & PASSWORD MANAGEMENT
IDSync® (www.IDSync.com) manages the on-boarding, bulk provisioning, password management, and synchronization of the data between LuxCloud security mechanisms and the centralized store of user’s identity and provisioning information in Active Directory. This gives LuxCloud and their partner customers a quick and easy way to eliminate client adoption barriers and manage user and resource information on an on-going basis while eliminating the need to maintain the same data in two systems. An add-on module, User Self Service, is available for those who want to allow end users to perform their own password resets and identity data changes.
LUXCLOUD HELPS THEIR PARTNERS ADD NEW CLIENTS QUICKLY
IDSync® reduces the on-boarding complexity and the costs associated with the initial provisioning for new clients AND the on-going labor required to maintain and support accurate application, password, and personal information. Identity Syncronizer brings standard Active Directory features and seamlessly integrates them with Parallels including Windows Security Groups, Contact, Distribution Lists, Application Level Feature Control and more. For Partner firms using white label services they will especially appreciate the Gateway Service features of IDSync® which ensures secure synchronization between layers of Parallels provisioning partners.
