Synchronization of Identity Data

A common requirement for companies with an established on-premises Active Directory environment, is to have the existing on-premises users and groups linked in some way to a hosted or Cloud Active Directory. Likewise it's essential for large organizations providing Hosted Exchange and housing Active Directory infrastructures, to keep their internal and external Active Directories linked.

Why HC ADSync?

There are plenty of good reasons to use HC ADSync for synchronizing your on-premises identities with those in the Cloud. The most important ones are:

AD Sync implementation


HC ADSync is far easier to implement than other more complex options. Installing and configuring HC ADSync simply involves a few one-time configuration steps. HC ADSync is a simple service which requires an installation over the primary (or additional) domain controllers. Once installed, AD objects can be selected to initiate the sync process between the ADs.

AD Sync complexity


HC ADSync does not require a two-way trust relationship to be established between domains neither does it demand the added complication of deploying an ADFS infrastructure. No additional servers, SSL certificates or DNS entries are required.

AD Sync cost


Costs can be cut into half or even more by deploying HC ADSync. There are no additional costs to consider above those of the licenses whereas other more expensive alternates like ADFS require additional server licensing, SSL certificates, hardware costs and/or virtual infrastructure resources and consultancy costs.
