Active Roles

Hybrid Active Directory, simple and secure

Active Roles is a single, unified and rich tool to automate the most troublesome user and group management tasks.

Administrators struggle to keep up with requests to create, change or remove access in today’s hybrid AD environments and with the limited capabilities of Microsoft Active Directory (AD) and Azure Active Directory (AAD) native tools. Thankfully, help has arrived.

With One Identity Active Roles, you can streamline user and group administration, solve security issues – and meet those never-ending compliance requirements by managing and securing on-prem, and cloud AD resources simply and efficiently with a single, intuitive solution.
