Whether you're delivering new services and applications, switching current offerings across new segments of customers and employees, or dealing with mergers and acquisitions, new demands are constant in an ever-changing business environment. But our current systems of customized and inflexible identity sources, each with its own representation of identities, make it difficult to securely deliver services to both internal and external users. As more and more secure applications are deployed on the web, enterprises and organizations are confronted with a common challenge: the need for a unified view of user directories.
This white paper describes how virtualization solves the issue of directory integration with an approach that is cost effective, non-intrusive, and easy to deploy. By externalizing identities into an interoperable service that can be accessed by a variety of applications, enterprises can securely deliver services to both internal and external users at faster speeds.
