Microsoft AD FS

Protecting AD FS

Pointsharp protects and integrates with Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) providing full control and insight how users authenticate with AD FS. Users get an easy and secure login experience with Single Sign-On to federated cloud applications such as Microsoft Office 365 and more.

Integration with Microsoft AD FS

Pointsharp can be used in two different scenarios, first as a MFA adapter secondly as a standalone federation STS (Security Token Service) together with Microsoft AD FS.

The MFA Adapter scenario is extra useful when Microsoft Web application proxy is deployed. Pointsharp can also have the responsibility being a STS and that scenario is opening the option to avoid using Active Directory password by replacing the password with a Pointsharp Access Password.

Both scenarios support Office 365 and Microsoft Modern authentication.
 

Conditional Login

You are in control of the rules that apply to different users accessing cloud services such as Microsoft Office 365. Rules are created easily and can be based on roles, level of authentication, location and more.
 

Protect Active Directory

Pointsharp provides the choice to use either Windows password (Active Directory) or a Pointsharp managed password that can be used for all external access.
 

Multi-factor Authentication

To ensure it is the right person that logs in to Office 365, Pointsharp offers many options for a second factor to strengthening the login.


Insight and Control

Without good insight, you’re not in control. If you’re not in control you don’t’ know if the security you invested in are doing its job. Pointsharp is the spider in the net and have full control of which users, when and to what applications they log in to. Pointsharp Dashboard visualize everything in graphical friendly interface that is easy to grasp.
