For example, the general liability channel could be split into smaller groups for users present in Eastern andWestern time zone. This guarantees privacy, as well as complete control and independence to administer their channels.
Authentication and Synchronization with Single Sign-On (SSO):With a range of authentication protocols, VIDIZMO provides secure enterprise SSO integration including directory service (e.g., Azure AD, ADFS, SAML-P and WS-Federation) and identity providers (e.g., Ping, Okta, etc.). 3rdparty sources such as Google, Facebook, Twitter Office365, etc., can also be used to authorize and authenticate users. Furthermore, organizations that have to synchronize and map entire groups or domains in enterprise AD to a specific channel, VIDIZMO provides ID Connector sync service to add or remove entire AD forest domains from a channel. As such, administrators have more control over who can access which channel.
