This following Office 365 video series is designed to guide system administrators through the A to Z’s of Centrify for Office 365, with practical information on everything from preparing Office 365 tenants to Active Directory set up and configuration.



Part 1: An Introduction to the Centrify Identity Service and Centrify for Office 365


We provide a brief overview of both the Centrify Identity Service and Microsoft Office 365. A quick introduction of how the two can be integrated together to give the most comprehensive and convenient user management for O365 Administrators, while simultaneously presenting a seamless experience for end-users.


Part 2: Components of the Centrify Identity Service


In this short video we run through the three core components that make up the Centrify Identity Service; the Centrify User Portal, the Centrify Cloud Manager and the Centrify Cloud Connector. We show how each component fits into the infrastructure and what the user experience will be when interacting with these components for both Microsoft Office 365 as well as other SaaS applications.


Part 3: The Different Account Types of Office 365


Microsoft Office 365 offers a range of different account types to serve the wide array of domain environments that exist in the corporate world. This video will run through each type of account and their login flows, and then demonstrate how the Centrify for Office 365 application can be incorporated to provide a consistent user experience - no matter what type of O365 account is used in the environment.

In this video, we provide a brief introduction to the Office 365 Admin Center, then a walk through the Office 365 tenant's domain and DNS registration steps. Finally, we show where and how to enable Directory Synchronization in Office 365 for integration with Active Directory.
