One Identity, AWS Directory Service Strengthen Partnership and Announce Active Roles Integration

ALISO VIEJO, CALIF. – Nov. 16, 2023 – Today, One Identity by Quest Software, a leader in unified identity security, and AWS announced a significant expansion of their strategic partnership with the general availability of a seamless integration between One Identity Active Roles and AWS Directory Service. This collaboration strengthens security and enhances efficiency, and reinforces the principle of least privilege, offering customers best-in-class control over their Azure Active Directory and AWS Directory Service environments.

“This collaboration represents a significant leap forward in empowering organizations who use AWS by allowing them to gain full observability into and control over the majority of their enterprise attack surface,” said Mark Logan, CEO of One Identity. “Together, AWS Directory Service and One Identity Active Roles create a seamless and powerful solution for proactively securing the hybrid workplace.”

This groundbreaking integration addresses critical user needs around identity security, compliance, and data management, providing the following:

  • Zero-trust, least-privilege security posture: Users can enhance their security best practices by deploying Zero Trust Least Privilege for AWS Managed Microsoft Active Directory, controlling access to AWS Directory Service, and managing user access privileges with a fine-grained delegation model.
  • Efficient directory synchronization and data integration: Active Roles and AWS enable users to seamlessly synchronize directories from various data sources across the organization, including from On-Prem AD to AWS Directory Service for improved consistency, security, and efficiency.
  • Improved UX with consolidated AD management: One Identity and AWS users can manage both their On-Prem AD and AWS Directory Service domains from a single plane, simplifying the hybrid security management of users, groups, and objects, including during mergers and acquisitions.
  • Enhanced data integrity and compliance: Thanks to automation and consolidated reporting tooling, security professionals can automate the most time-intensive tasks around data integrity and compliance to provide accurate and consistent data while freeing up more time for impact to their organization.
