Rethinking Reliance on Active Directory
Active Directory (AD) was born in 1999, before the rise of cloud applications, device heterogeneity, and workplace flexibility. Although AD can no longer support the needs of a modern organization, simply decommissioning it isn’t realistic; AD has become so entangled that admins lack visibility into all related interdependencies. As a result, reducing reliance on AD is a journey.
Luckily, Okta has helped thousands of organizations take their first steps toward an AD-free world. We’ve built the Rethink AD Maturity Model to share common patterns we’ve seen across organizations moving off of AD.
