With digitalbucket.net Directory Services, organizations can easily transition their users over to digitalbucket.net. Instead of having to create sub-accounts for your users, you can push user accounts from your existing LDAP server to the digitalbucket.net account.
Many companies use a central LDAP database to manage user identities. By delegating digitalbucket.net authentication to this system, when a user is removed from the LDAP system, they can no longer access digitalbucket.net. Consequently, users who leave the company, automatically lose access to company data after their departure.
We are happy to announce the ability to provision users from your own internal directory services be it Active Directory, Lotus Domino or another LDAP solution with your digitalbucket.net.
We provide an interface that extracts user records and related metadata from your directory service into the digitalbucket.net account. You can automatically load a subset or all users into your digitalbucket.net account. Furthermore as new users are created, or users leaving the company are deactivated within your directory service, your account will be kept in sync with these changes.
Digitalbucket.net also allows mixed mode authentication, where some users are authenticated from your directory service and others are authenticated from the digitalbucket.net services. For example, assume you only have employee records set up in your directory service. You plan to use digitalbucket.net for file sharing between your employees and business partners. Since the business partner user data is not a part of the directory service, you can set up digitalbucket.net to authenticate all your employees against your directory service, and all business partners against the digitalbucket.net services.
