Environments in Identity and Access Management
To meet the needs of our customers, Engity has developed a unique feature called "Environments for Directories". These Environments allow an additional management layer to be added on top of a standard database or directory. This opens up totally new possibilities for managing user directories. The biggest benefit is that you no longer have to manage several directories in parallel, but nevertheless do not need to sacrifice the advantages of this approach.
An environment can either be set up to provide a certain look-and-feel or define certain access rules for a user group if logging in with OpenID Connect or the SAML interface. Only if the predefined environment rules are met, the respective user gets access to the database.
Engity's Environments for Directories empowers our customers to easily scale operations and helps administrators to flexibly manage user directories based on actual needs. Additionally, our environments technology can be operated at lower costs, with less admin efforts, and at a higher security level than multiple directories side by side.
Or short: Multiple looks and rules, yet only one directory.
