Quest Software Expands Provisioning to SharePoint and SAP Solutions
March 2010 by Emmanuelle Lamandé
Quest Software, Inc. has updated Quest® ActiveRoles® Quick Connect. The new versions include support for Microsoft SharePoint, SAP Solutions and password synchronization. ActiveRoles Quick Connect is a central component of Quest® One Identity Solution, which provides heterogeneous identity and access management capabilities.
The new SharePoint integration in Quick Connect helps with this use case by providing unmanaged sites a clear migration path to an IT-managed state through Active Directory integration. In addition, it enables IT to provision user access in real time, extend access certification reviews to SharePoint site owners and provide optional policies to disable groups.
ActiveRoles Quick Connect takes the next step for further integration, enabling provisioning of SAP accounts, and offering the capability of assigning SAP roles that manage access to various SAP modules.
Quick Connect enables IT to centrally manage identities between connected systems. More than likely, each of these systems requires separate passwords that can create security concerns, and, maintaining all of these passwords is a hassle for users and administrators alike. In this new version, Quick Connect can synchronize passwords between Active Directory and connected systems. The Quick Connect Capture Agent tracks changes that were made to user passwords in Active Directory, and then Quick Connect Sync Engine synchronizes the passwords based on this information.
