Most modern identity and access management solutions integrate with an organization’s Active Directory through an agent-based deployment model. These agents communicate between the AD and the IdP to sync user identity.

However, a cause for concern is that if the agent fails or misbehaves, then this can result in a disconnect between the AD and the IdP, resulting in a failure of user access across the organization.

By using an agentless model, Akku eliminates the need for installing an agent, and instead routes connects to your Active Directory through a secure LDAPS connection which accesses only specific attributes. Therefore, Akku offers reliable performance without compromising on transparency and security.

Akku’s certificate-based authentication architecture enables reliable evaluation of the user’s right to access the requested resource and also set up tamper-proof device-based restrictions.
