Extending Office 365

The Virtual Identity Server is Extending Office 365 with powerful multi-forest, multi-platform, two-factor authentication and Denial of Service prevention/detection capabilities.


Screenshot_24Microsoft’s Office 365 allows you access to cloud-based email, web conferencing, file sharing and Office applications for a flat monthly cost, eliminating the need for on-premise servers to provide this functionality.

For many enterprises, the move to the cloud is a slow and difficult process taking months to complete. There are many barriers to Office 365 adoption, particularly for organizations working in multi-forest Active Directory environments. VIS makes Active Directory integration for Office 365 easy, providing rapid cloud deployment and  slashing implementation times from multiple months to days.

Whether you have multiple Active Directory (AD) Forests or use a directory such as Novell’s e-Directory, VIS for Office 365 can quickly and easily take your users to the cloud wherever they reside. VIS for Office 365 is a complete end-to-end solution for synching users/groups, filtering or translating data as it is synched (and during authentication), and implementing complete audit logging and denial of service (DoS) capabilities.

VIS for Office 365’s federation components provide out of the box two-factor, claims-based authentication to Office 365. They also provide customers who otherwise couldn’t go to the cloud (e.g. eDirectory or multi-forest users) a fast and easy path for doing so, with point and click wizard interfaces.

VIS for Office 365 also supports customers with either non-routable domains for a User Principal Name such as JoeUser@Optimal.local or multiple UPN suffixes. VIS for Office 365 handles this on-the-fly by translating on the out-bound synch and as the user authenticates to Office 365, with no data changes required in Active Directory.

Get to the cloud faster, with additional features and functionality with VIS’ Office 365 federation services.
