Active Directory Connector - Overview
The Active Directory Connector (AD Connector) is an application that Endpoint Cloud uses to authenticate your user accounts. It connects to your Microsoft Active Directory and allows Endpoint Cloud to:
- Identify each Microsoft user account
- Identify the devices that are associated with each Microsoft user account
- Automatically create matching users and devices in Endpoint Cloud
- Authenticate connections from devices to Endpoint Cloud.
You should install the AD Connector on a domain-joined Windows server that is on your business premises. You also need to register the AD Connector so that it can connect to Endpoint Cloud.
