User Provisioning / User Account Provisioning is an Identity Access Management (IAM) process that ensures employee/user accounts are created, updated, deleted and given proper access across multiple applications and systems at the same time. User/employee information such as name, attributes, group name, and other associated data are available through account and access management, which allows you to grant or prohibit access based on your needs. When information in an "original system database" is added or altered, provisioning is required (e.g. HR system, Institute Database). User Provisioning (Account Provisioning) can be triggered by events like hiring, promotions, and transfers. User account Provisioning guarantees that users' access rights and privileges are up to date without the need for manual intervention. Provisioning assures that access is granted only when it is required, preventing hackers from exploiting security flaws to gain unauthorized access to important company data.
Deprovisioning refers to withdrawing a user's access to various SAAS apps account and network systems at the same time. When an employee leaves a firm or changes responsibilities within the organisation, the Deprovisioning action is triggered. Deprovisioning lets enterprises free up disc space, ports, certificates, and company-issued workstations for future usage by removing individual accounts from file servers and authentication servers like Active Directory. Deprovisioning protects the organization's security and confidentiality by preventing former employees from accessing corporate resources after they leave. This ensures the security of the organization's applications while also lowering administrative expenses and time.
As an IAM solution provider, miniOrange supports a large network of pre-built integration that allows your business to securely adopt and deploy Provisioning to cloud-based SAAS and On-Premise apps account without having to maintain the integrations separately. It's even easier for businesses to create employees accounts and grant them the necessary rights and permissions to access an organization's resources with pre-integrated Provisioning and Deprovisioning solution.
Any application that adds, removes or update an end-user access will immediately sync with miniOrange within a second.
User account from the directory can be imported into miniOrange at regular periods, such as hourly, daily, or weekly.
Users may be imported in bulk from a variety of apps, IDPs, and directories, including Azure AD and LDAP.
When a user leaves a team or organization, it instantly deactivates their accounts in the systems.
Within seconds, changes in Active Directory are synchronized to downstream access from any app or a system.
User Management creates, updates, and deletes user data over the user's lifetime in the connected application.
Improve security by assigning different permissions levels on a role-based basis with automated provisioning within SAAS applications.
Automated onboarding and offboarding processes lowers the cost of Identity & account management operations.
Provide the appropriate amount of access to employees, contractors, and partners as needed, which helps to improve efficiency and productivity indirectly.
Using a centralised system, administrators can automate provisioning and manage many application accounts, reducing human errors and complexity.
Automated User Provisioning entails automating the procedures of adding, updating, and deleting users, as well as managing their access. Automated Provisioning eliminates the challenges and delays associated with manually managing profiles and account rights, mitigating security breaches by reducing the impact of human mistakes and improving operational efficiency. Manually generating employee accounts implies that your password is known by someone within the organization, which is likely a very insecure practice. Employees could be supplied to systems and data that they shouldn't have access to, or that they still have access to after they leave your firm, due to human error. Automating User Provisioning and Deprovisioning eliminates these issues by granting permissions to individuals in a secure and private manner. Based on their role's qualities, the procedure guarantees that an employee gets provisioned for on-premises and external SAAS applications. After that, these attributes and permissions are then stored in one central database, ensuring they can be easily modified as employee role changes.
Group Provisioning is required when you want to maintain the same user hierarchy and access control in multiple applications at once. Between multiple programmes, you can sync users with their appropriate group names. Assume that all users in your company are assigned to specified groups in Active Directory, such as Developer, Tester, and Marketer. If a member of the Developer group wants to use both the Developers and Tester Tools applications, group provisioning can help. Group Provisioning synchronizes user groups with all relevant apps and grants them the same level of access. Access can be rolled out based on group rules when departments or teams implement a new tool or change an employee's status.
Active Directory (AD) provisioning can help your organization to manage resources between your cloud applications and application hosted On-Premise. You might be using a legacy app that depends on an LDAP user store or another database. You can create, update, and delete users in on-premises apps using the Azure AD provisioning service without having to open firewalls or deal with TCP ports. Using lightweight agents, you can provision users into on-premises applications and govern access accordingly. When Azure AD is used with the application proxy, you can manage access to your on-premises application and provide automatic user provisioning service) and Single Sign-On.
