Oversight and governance of Active Directory (AD) are essential to identity access management (IAM) and a healthy campus network security posture. But the complexities of AD, like setting policies, managing DNS servers, and integrating access into critical applications can be difficult to manage.
Overcome the challenges of Active Directory
Apogee helps ensure efficient end-user access and protection of network resources. Routine and 24/7 critical server support ensures uptime and availability, while customized group policies limit access to institutional research, student data, or other sensitive information.
Adding yet another layer of protection, Apogee works with third-party application vendors to fully integrate single sign-on (SSO) into essential applications. Standardized policy enforcement and daily oversight of multi-factor authentication (MFA) ensure VPNs and applications are highly available and accessed appropriately.
Offered as a discrete service or part of a comprehensive Managed IT Services suite, Managed Active Directory creates a solid foundation for campus IAM deployments. It efficiently aligns network resources to the right users or groups, limiting access to your most sensitive data while maintaining faculty and staff productivity.
