Keeping vendors out of AD

(0 comments)

We often prattle on about the benefits of having your directory perform authorization, either via NPS for AD or Freeradius for LDAP.  Certainly, for employees where HR can manage users in AD, that makes a lot of sense. Single step disablement.   A recent customer signed on with the opposite needs.  They have non-employees who access their infrastructure remotely via Bomgar and they do not want those users in their directory.

This configuration makes a lot of sense.  Clearly securing vendor remote access is a hot topic after the Target breach.  Any enterprise-class remote access system should be able to route certain users to one authentication server and other to another.  On the WiKID server, you can have one user domain for vendors and one for employees.  You can even use our API to create a CSR console so that your vendors can manage their own employees (if you're comfortable with that).
