Active Directory Domain

The cornerstone of every Windows network.

Stores information about members of the domain, including devices and users, verifies their credentials and defines their access rights.

Product overview

A Windows domain is closed system of users and computers that can share resources and adhere to one centrally controlled management structure. Each user and machine belonging to that domain must authenticate with a domain controller in order to access the system. User accounts, machine accounts, security groups and many other settings are held in a central database called Active Directory.

Authenticate users across your network.
