What is Azure Active Directory?

In layman's terms as it pertains to your visitor management application, your IT team stores information about all of your coworkers in a database. Azure Active Directory is a cloud-based service by Microsoft for this purpose. Azure AD contains information like employees' names, email addresses, phone numbers, divisions, job titles, and more relevant information about their employment.

Virtual reception software with Azure AD integrationSince your organization already has this information in one place, there is no reason to maintain it again in Greetly. By using our Azure AD integration you can sync this information so the current employee roster always shows correctly.

Or, according to Microsoft:

A directory is a hierarchical structure that stores information about objects on the network. A directory service, such as Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), provides the methods for storing directory data and making this data available to network users and administrators. For example, AD DS stores information about user accounts, such as names, passwords, phone numbers, and so on, and enables other authorized users on the same network to access this information.

Active Directory stores information about objects on the network and makes this information easy for administrators and users to find and use. Active Directory uses a structured data store as the basis for a logical, hierarchical organization of directory information.

How much does it cost to integrate Greetly with Azure AD?

With Greetly, there are never surprise fees. All of our directory services integrations, including Microsoft's Azure AD (plus the on-premise version of Active Directory, or Google for Work), are included with all of our pricing plans.

What is Single Sign-On (SSO)?

Illustration of Azure secure single sign-onSingle Sign-On, or SSO, is an "authentication service that permits a user to use one set of login credentials -- for example, a name and password -- to access multiple applications. SSO can be used by enterprises, smaller organizations, and individuals to ease the management of various usernames and passwords," according to TechTarget.

When you log into an app using your Gmail, Facebook, or Twitter credentials, that is SSO.

Government and enterprise organizations require SSO for all secure applications. Employees and other system users will access all of their software, including email, visitor management software, and any other systems they need, through their SSO.

Greetly clients can add a security layer by using Azure SSO to access the web-admin, in order to manage users, view the visitor log, and take advantage of our leading workflow customization module.
