Active Directory (AD) is a Microsoft product which is well-known for its domain services. It maintains directories, or hierarchical structures for managing the objects such as users, devices, services, and several other corporate assets within a network. The administrators and network users can efficiently access all sorts of data within an AD. Active Directory provides multiple directory services including Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) for simplified data access and modification, and a range of authentication packages between SSL or Kerberos, to ensure maximum security in an organization.
Hexnode with its Active Directory integration empowers IT admins to manage multiple Active Directory domains seamlessly from a single console. Hexnode lets administrators enroll and fetch a list of AD users directly from the MDM console, and enforce corporate restriction policies to the existing users, groups or organizational units. With Hexnode, IT administrators can generate reports based on all AD users and enrollment status. Moreover, Hexnode enables the admins to dynamically access user-based data such as username, password, and device ID, from Active Directory with wildcards.
