Cloud software to provide directory services regardless of locale, platform, protocol, or provider. Unlike SSO solutions, Directory-as-a-Service can federate access to both web-based and on-premise applications. DaaS is platform neutral and takes advantage of a myriad of protocols, so IT admins can manage user access to on-prem and cloud-based apps (LDAP and SAML 2.0), networks (RADIUS), and Google Workspace and Microsoft/Office 365 (OAuth). A user is connected to all of these resources with one centralized identity.
