MediaValet Announces Support for Microsoft Azure Active Directory; Delivering Advanced Identity Management and Connecting On-Premise and Cloud Directory Services

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - February 10, 2016) -  MediaValet (TSX VENTURE: MVP), a leading provider of cloud-based digital asset management software is pleased to announce integration with Microsoft Azure Active Directory. This integration enables organizations to quickly and securely scale the benefits of MediaValet's cloud-based digital asset management system (DAMS) company-wide, empowering tens of thousands of users to easily access and utilize company-approved media assets. Integrating with Azure Active Directory reduces IT support costs, improves network security, and supports corporate wide compliance by managing user identifications, authentication, and security policies in one central location.

With over 240 million user accounts, in 127 countries, Microsoft's Azure Active Directory services over 12 billion identity authentications per week from more than 1.4 million businesses, schools, government agencies, and non-profits. Azure Active Directory is chosen by organizations of all sizes all around the world because it provides the scale, performance and geographic reach to enable access to applications and data by any user, on any device, from any location.

IT teams now have the ability to quickly reset and delete passwords, update user account information, manage security settings, and enable group permissions in MediaValet through their central Active Directory console. Users will enjoy an enterprise-scale single sign-on (SSO) environment that will allow them to login to MediaValet using the same username and password that they use for all corporately approved and Active Directory supported applications across their organization.

"Our integration with Azure Active Directory is our first step in democratizing content across entire organizations, enabling all staff, vendors and partners to access the latest versions of corporately approved assets," commented David MacLaren, founder and CEO of MediaValet. "Removing corporate content from the silos that it commonly resides in and making it easily accessible by all those that need access not only increases the productivity of those users but also increases the ROI of the content itself."

From an IT standpoint, integrating MediaValet with Microsoft Azure Active Directory will enable IT teams to efficiently and effortlessly manage the access and usage of an organization's corporate media assets -- no matter how many users, media assets or locations they have.
