Organizations are increasingly delegating access administration and user authorization tasks to their IT departments, even though doing so can mean granting more capabilities than the staff member needs to perform the task at hand, or accepting the higher labor costs and reduced service levels associated with more limited staff access.
Hi, I'm Allison Main, Product Marketing for Identity and Access Management Solutions at Dell Software. These issues stem from the fact that Active Directory's native management tools simply aren't designed to provide the flexibility organizations need to meet their increasing business requirements. But in the white paper, Dell Software titled, "Active Directory-- Challenges Solved," explains how organizations can deliver better IT service with better security and less overhead by employing a role-based access control model.
In the paper, author and IT technology expert Don Jones explains best practices for assigning permissions to rules-- instead of individual users-- and managing those permissions from a central console. Don also talks about solutions for enabling the best practices, like ActiveRoles, our solutions for automating Active Directory based delegation, and managing AD users and groups. So download the white paper now, and learn how you can overcome the limitations of Active Directory's native tools and more efficiently manage user access.
