SharePoint allows you to collaborate across a wide variety of user populations: Internal corporate users, external business partners, vendors, and consumers. The challenge for SharePoint administrators is that all these user populations have their own identity sources. Corporate users have Active Directory, which is tightly integrated with SharePoint - but what if the users come from multiple AD forests? External business partners and vendors have their own sources, and consumers must create their own identity at the SharePoint portal or perhaps use a consumer identity provider such as Facebook.
In this webinar, Rod Trent will review the authentication and authorization challenges SharePoint administrators (and by extension the administrators of SharePoint's identity sources) face, best practices to minimize the headaches with out-of-box or free tools, and how a layer of virtualization can simplify the environment.
