Set up a directory of users

Integrate Banyan with your Identity Provider to create a directory of users that can access your Services

For security reasons, Banyan handles Admins and Users completely separately.
- Admins manage access control security policies via the Banyan Command Center web console and API. To manage admins, refer to the articles on managing the Banyan Command Center.
- Users use their Devices to access Services that are secured by Banyan’s enforcement components.


Banyan is NOT an Identity Provider. Instead, Banyan integrates with your Identity Providers so your end users can be authenticated via authentication federation.
