Hybrid Identity Management

Get secure single sign-on for any application faster, more easily, and from any device with Microsoft’s identity and access management cloud solution.

Cloud Navigator offers a highly standardized integrated identity management and single-sign-on solution (SSO) based on Microsoft products including:

Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is an identity and access management-as-a-service (IDaaS) solution that combines single-on capabilities to any cloud and on-premises application with advanced protection. It gives your people, partners, and customers a single identity to access the applications they want and collaborate from any platform and device. And because it’s based on scalable management capabilities and risk-based access rules, Azure AD helps ensure security and streamline IT processes.

Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS), a software component developed by Microsoft, can run on Windows Server operating systems to provide users with single sign-on access to systems and applications located across organizational boundaries. It uses a claims-based access-control authorization model to maintain application security and to implement federated identity.

Azure AD Connect, which will integrate your on-premises directories with Azure Active Directory. This allows you to provide a common identity for your users for Office 365, Azure, and SaaS applications integrated with Azure AD.

Customer Spotlight: Florida Department of Management ServicesFL DMS Logo

The Florida Department of Management Services (DMS) had recently moved email services to Office 365 with our help.  The migration included two subsidiary but separate organizations (PERC and FCHR).  The three organizations had been coupled due to budget constraints.  DMS was the only one of the three with data center assets and purchasing power.  With the move to the cloud, the opportunity to divest and operate as distinct organizations was clear.

The Solution

For DMS, we deployed two backup domain controllers with AD Connect on each, and two ADFS servers in a load balanced availability set.

For PERC and FCHR, we deployed a simplified solution for each with high availability and all enabling services on a single server.

Hybrid identity example

The Results

The federation and synchronization between three separate domains and their respective Azure Active Directory instances represents progress in the de-coupling of three organization’s IT resources.

It’s time to revisit your disaster recovery options. You may be paying for a service that is incomplete or just out-of-date. Traditional disaster recovery solutions are expensive as they require a complete infrastructural replication of your environment. Azure Site Recovery from ISC brings the next generation in protection to your business.

Leverage the Power of The Microsoft Cloud

  • Up-to-date Snapshots With Azure Site Recovery, snapshots are never more than a few minutes old. You can restore your workloads with minimal data loss.
  • Historical Data Retrieval With Azure Backup, you can retrieve files and folders from months or even years ago.
  • Replicate any Workload Both physical servers and Azure, Hyper-V, or VMWare VMs running supported versions of Windows or Linux can be protected.
  • Network Integration ISC will set up a VPN tunnel between your premises and an Azure network. Using a replica domain controller on the Azure network, you can fail workloads over to Azure and they can seamlessly interact with healthy workloads that remain on-premise.
  • Simple Monitoring With both emailed alerts and a single location in the Azure Portal, it is very easy to monitor the health of your protection. We do this for you under most plans, and provide a monthly summary of any significant issues.
  • Customized Solutions During onboarding, ISC will create recovery plans and runbooks. With these we can bring recovered servers up in a logical sequence, create desired security configurations, load balancers, and public endpoints, and assign servers to appropriate subnets. During our analysis we will identify workloads that may benefit from further protection, such as AlwaysOn for SQL Server instances or DataGuard for Oracle.
  • Test Without Disruption With test failovers, we bring your workloads up in an isolated network on Azure. There’s no disruption to your production environment.
  • No Extra Hardware Needed With Azure Site Recovery, you replicate to the cloud. There’s no extra hardware to maintain.
  • The Trusted Cloud Microsoft has the most comprehensive compliance coverage of any cloud provider, including HIPAA, CJIS, and IRS 1075. Use encrypted storage to make your data in the cloud even more secure
