As organizations adopt more SaaS/Cloud apps like Salesforce.com, Google Apps, WebEx, Concur or NetSuite, managing users' identity and access across each app's siloed user directory becomes increasingly challenging. Provisioning and deprovisioning users is a time-intensive manual process that involves administrators across multiple departments, leaving organizations open to risk if a fired employee's access isn't revoked right away. Further, while anytime/anywhere access can be a boon to productivity, it also poses adoption and security challenges. IT departments must find a way to harness the benefits of SaaS, while minimizing business risk.
Integrating Active Directory (AD) with SaaS/Cloud applications is key to the solution, but AD does not natively plug into them. This paper will discuss the following three different options for extending AD to SaaS/Cloud apps:
Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS)
Writing to target SaaS/Cloud application APIs
Adopting 3rd party identity management services built for the cloud
