Delegate Access Management
Put the right people in charge of access control
Let the relevant stakeholders in your business look after managing who can access their services without compromising your underlying security settings.
Our extranet user management solution allows IT teams to set up a granular permission structure that delegates user management to the people that own the relationship with the external audience.
Far from being a risk, this ability helps ensure access rights are accurate and up-to-date, whilst eliminating the administrative overheads on the IT department.

Bulk import contacts and group memberships and tailored email invitations make it quick and easy to get clients and partners up and running with the different services you want to offer.

Example Use Cases
Address client-facing & internal needs
There’s so many ways in which you can save time managing access to SharePoint sites, Teams channels, SaaS Apps and more. Here’s just a few examples:
Host membership-based content – Manage the user administration for invitation-only events, members-only portals or subscriber-based (paid-for) training or content using your Microsoft infrastructure.
Give secure access to internal apps – For example, extend your workspace booking system to contractors and partners.
Manage Microsoft 365 virtual events – If you would like to host a virtual event using Microsoft Teams, we can help you with a user registration process that maintains delegate anonymity.
Govern Teams & SharePoint site creation – If your Teams or SharePoint sites are getting out of control, our user manager lets you disable the self-service creation that is enabled by default and instead replace it with:
- A forms-based request process
- The ability to make new sites subject to approval
- Tracking of existing sites & new site requests
- Automated creation of the required SharePoint site & Team
