MediaBank 3.5 Feature Name: LDAP Support
MediaBank Version: Workgroup and Enterprise
Benefits: The I.T. headaches caused by managing many user accounts in different systems is minimized within MediaBank by promoting consistency, saving time, and decreasing administrative costs through LDAP automation.
Description: MediaBank 3.5 now integrates with LDAP and Active Directory. LDAP and Active Directory are application protocol tools that allow administrators to define users, grant permissions, and assign policies to users and groups from a central database. Once a user is defined, given new permissions, or terminated in LDAP or Active Directory, MediaBank 3.5 automatically updates this information within its own system. Therefore, I.T. or Administrative personnel do not have to remap or re-authenticate users in MediaBank, as they did previously. Additionally, LDAP Support authenticates users remotely for the web, so these remote users do not need to be redefined in Active Directory. By removing the need to manually manage MediaBank users, this automatic feature saves employees time and ultimately decreases administrate costs for the company.
