Simplify DLAN Security with Federated Account Management

During normal operations, when a user has to sign in to multiple accounts, it is a minor nuisance; during an activation, it ticks precious seconds off the clock. This problem is worsened by constant staff movement within an EOC brought on by shift changes, new staff coming in from external partners, and staff roles changing within the incident. Maintaining current accounts, creating new ones, and de-activating accounts on multiple applications can be a challenging task for any information technology personnel, but during the high-stress, high-stakes situation created by an emergency, it can be particularly daunting. DLAN 10.8 makes it much easier to stay on top of these personnel changes with our new user account Federation Services.
