I don’t get it. Obviously I have blinders on. Apparently there are companies that prefer password synchronization – or nothing – between their corporate Active Directory and Office 365. Why?
Is it because setting up ADFS requires corporate ITs involvement? Is it because ADFS is perceived to be too difficult? Do they feel they are exposing their Active Directory on the internet so there’s a security risk? I’m not getting clear answers when I try to dig into this. I’m having trouble understanding why a company wouldn’t want to enable single sign-on. Do they not understand the benefits of single sign-on from the perspective of reducing password confusion, reducing helpdesk calls, etc?
Have any of you run into this? What’s your experience?
