Our Case Studies

 

 

​Delta Air Lines, Inc. is a major American airline, with its headquarters and largest hub at Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport in Atlanta, Georgia. The airline along with its subsidiaries and regional affiliates operate over 5,400 flights daily and serve an extensive domestic and international network that includes 334 destinations in 64 countries on six continents

The Challenge

Delta was planning to use a cloud-based SharePoint solution for emergency preparedness HA/DR. Delta wanted their users to authenticate against their internal Active Directory and then seamlessly enter this SharePoint solution with their AD Authentication being passed.

What We Did

Security-based solutions are extremely challenging due to protracted testing and rollout and this project was no exception. Careful coordination with many stakeholders was required, and testing was carefully done in several phases. We utilized Microsoft's Gold partner support for architectural design review and to ensure that we were following best practices for this large implementation.

When this project was completed authentication could be accomplished by the following three methods:

    • ADFS (Active Directory Federation Services), a software component developed by Microsoft that we installed on Windows Servers to provide users with single sign-on access to federated systems.
    • Smartcard authentication
    • PingFederate Identity Provider

The Result

Users now have a seamless single sign-on experience between their internal network and the cloud-based SharePoint solution. Management overhead is minimal as the only maintenance required is to update the security certificate every few years.
