  5. 5. Features of the VIS  Application SpecificViews  Powerful Join & Merge Option  Comprehensive Audit and Compliance  Robust Scaling and Caching  Extensible Solution  Enhance Microsoft Centric Platform
  6. 6. Application Specific Views  AD alone does not provide the ability to controlWHAT is searched like specific LDAP queries  VIS only grants the data the application requires  Results to a more secure AD and increased performance for both application and AD
  7. 7. Figure 3: Normal AD View vs. VIS Filtered View
  8. 8. Powerful Join and Merge Options - Without Custom Code TheVirtual Identity Server can:  Provide a single enterprise view of data across multiple siloed directories  Provide a different view of the data on an application by application basis  Allow different rights/access to data (i.e. update or read only) on an application by application basis  Transform, merge and map data from multiple LDAP directories to a virtual name or namespace
