Microsoft® Integration

There is no doubt that, apart from a few exceptions, every major IT environment is built on Microsoft Windows. This prevalence in the corporate world, with market shares of nearly 100%, is the reason why tenfold is so deeply integrated in the Microsoft infrastructure

Active Directory

tenfold supports the management of user accounts and access rights in Active Directory. Many of the settings can be standardized and automated using policies. In combination with tenfold’s self-service functions, for instance, the policies enable the automatic creation of new user accounts and modification of data (no manual input required). This also includes Active Directory attributes and settings. tenfold’s ability to automatically create and archive home directories further simplifies user management tasks.

File servers

Some of the greatest challenges IT staff face today are transparency and the task of finding simpler means to manage file server access rights. Unfortunately, the tools provided by Windows Server and other software suppliers do not meet the demands of medium-sized and larger companies.

With tenfold, you can find out with one click which users have access to critical data. tenfold extracts data from the file servers and Active Directory, resolves nested structures independently, filters out irrelevant information and provides a clear view of effective access rights. It even gives you access to historical data.

Fileserver-Berechtigungen

The AGDLP principle has been established as best practice for file server management. However, implementing this principle using the standard tools requires a great deal of manual efforts and high levels of consistency and discipline from all involved administrators in complying with policies – and even if all these demands are met, the risk that access rights could be accidentally and incorrectly assigned is still very high.

In tenfold, the implementation of the AGDLP principle is 100% automated. IT administrators and users must only set the desired level of authorization (read, modify) and tenfold will take care of the rest. The group structure that is necessary for AGDLP is transparently managed by tenfold in the Active Directory. There are policies in place to ensure that the appropriate naming conventions are applied.

Exchange

Commonly, the number one groupware solution of choice is Exchange and, essentially, it is very well integrated with Active Directory. However, the processes involved in creating, adjusting and deactivating mailboxes entail additional manual efforts, which in turn lead to an increased potential for risk.
tenfold offers administrative advantages for both on-premise, as well as for Hybrid Cloud environments, in combination with Office 365. For instance, mailboxes can be created automatically in the user process and there are policies that can be used to determine the correct mailbox database and remote settings. If an employee leaves the organization, tenfold automatically ensures that their mailbox is properly archived.

With Exchange, you can set detailed access rights for entire mailboxes and for individual mailbox folders. This is often necessary for shared mailboxes and calendar folders. Unfortunately, this also poses similar challenges as for file servers.
With its user-friendly features, tenfold allows you to analyze effective Exchange permissions at user level and according to best practices.

SharePoint

Reporting in SharePoint involves similar tasks as reporting for file servers and in Exchange. Here, tenfold provides valuable analysis options for SharePoint objects and is able to generate a quick and clear overview of where in SharePoint specific users have access.

Office 365

There is no doubt that one of the main reasons for Office 365 being so widely spread is its simple integration with Active Directory via Azure AD Connect and ADFS. However, while user and group objects are automatically synchronized using these tools, the activation of users as fully licensed Microsoft Online users must still be carried out manually.

tenfold relieves the IT department of this duty, which would otherwise have to be performed using the Office 365 admin portal or custom scripts that are prone to errors. With the appropriate settings, the license packages can be activated and then assigned automatically via profiles, or by manually selecting them in tenfold.

Skype for Business (On Premise)

If you are still using Skype for Business on-premise instead of online, you can use tenfold here, too. tenfold offers an integration that automatically activates the service for the selected user and also makes SIP settings and removes the service once it is no longer needed.
