Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) is being widely adopted among organizations in recent times. While doing so, the users of the organization are burdened with remembering yet another username and password. This not only causes password fatigue but also increases the number of help desk tickets requesting a password reset. Is your organization looking for a solution to overcome such challenges?
ADSelfService Plus offers secure single sign-on (SSO) that provides users with seamless, consistent access to all cloud applications, including Microsoft 365. It provides SSO by integrating your on-premises Active Directory (AD) with Microsoft 365 and other SAML-enabled applications. So, when users try to log in to Microsoft 365, ADSelfService Plus authenticates them using their Windows AD domain credentials to sign them in automatically—they don't have to re-enter their username or password.
ADSelfService Plus also supports secure AD-based SSO for over one hundred other SAML-, OAuth-, and OpenID-enabled enterprise applications such as Dropbox, Google Workspace, Salesforce, and ServiceNow.
ADSelfService Plus eliminates the complicated process of setting up AD-based Microsoft 365 SSO via Microsoft's Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) and Azure AD Connect (formerly DirSync). It uses the widely-adopted industry standard SAML 2.0, which allows you to securely utilize the identities in your existing AD infrastructure for SSO.
ADSelfService Plus supports both identity provider (IdP)- and service-provider (SP)-initiated SSO flows for Microsoft 365. The diagram below depicts the SP-initiated SAML SSO flow for Microsoft 365 where a user initially requests access to the application and is then redirected to ADSelfService Plus to complete authentication. Once authenticated, the user is given access to Microsoft 365. In the IdP-initiated SAML SSO flow, the user first logs in to ADSelfService Plus after being authenticated and then gets one-click access to Microsoft 365 from their dashboard of assigned applications.
With ADSelfService Plus, you can granularly control who has access to Microsoft 365 based on OUs and groups in AD. You can also create multiple policies to ensure that only specific users have access to Microsoft 365 and its business-critical services.
ADSelfService Plus lets you add an extra layer of protection for Microsoft 365 SSO by enabling MFA. Besides AD credentials, you can configure other authentication factors for your users accessing Microsoft 365. Below are some of the authentication factors that ADSelfService Plus offers:
