After such an integration for which you use our app ‘Active Directory Connection’, the Active Directory (AD) continues to work as a the primary directory service, while UCS can extend the AD domain by exactly those open source software solutions that are available in the App Center.
With its many solutions, the Univention App Center offers you a multitude of choices. However, finding the perfect fit is not always taking the easiest solution.
Let me walk you through a step by step process how you can find the optimal solution for your business and which aspects of a software you should examine in particular.
Since 2003, the Bremen „Senator for Children and Education“ has been developing and implementing a centralized offer for the provision of IT infrastructure in Bremen‘s schools. Among other elements, this covers centralized identity and infrastructure management, defined server and desktop environments, software distribution of educational applications for schools, a school software solution for computer-assisted teaching and roll-out, support, update and helpdesk procedures.
With the announcement of July 23, 2018 at the beginning of February this year, Google created a new milestone on the path to a fully encrypted web. On this day the new version 68 of the Chrome browser will appear, which will, for the first time, mark all websites accessed via HTTP as unsafe. Instead of the well known green lock, which stands for secure HTTPS connections, there will then be shown a grey lettering indicating the uncertainty of the connection.
Single Sign-on (SSO) is a process where your users authenticate themselves only once against the system and that’s it. They can then use a whole range of different programs, services, and cloud offerings without having to sign on personally each time again. Your users will love it. No more hassle with inventing and remembering numerous different passwords.
But single sign-on is not only about user friendliness. Another important aspect is, of course, the security of your data. When you’ve got a complex IT infrastructure, which includes mobile apps and devices and cloud services, the security risk increases a lot.
This is why I would like to explain here how you can catch two birds with one stone: Making work easier for your employees with single sign-on technology while keeping your data safer from external attacks at the same time.
In this success story, you can find out how we set up a collaborative workspace for SOLARKIOSK AG, a company offering green energy services, high-quality products, and sustainable solutions all over the world. This workspace allows all members of the team to work and communicate with each other from anywhere and at any time – efficiently, reliably, and securely.
Have you ever thought?: “It’s enough! I finally want to set up my own robust, powerful server at home to put an end to the permanent threat that someone might hack my precious data.”
I did! And today, I’d like to share with you here all the necessary steps that are required for this. In addition to UCS, my home server scenario also includes a software bundle made up of groupware, mail, and file exchange software, i.e. ownCloud and the Kopano apps. This bundle make proprietary mail and groupware solutions redundant if you like. In addition, I also show you how to install Let’s Encrypt so that the connections to your UCS server will be well protected, too.
