Multi-Tenancy in the context of Organizations is a feature offered by Control D that enables businesses to effectively manage their DNS infrastructure across various units within the organization. It streamlines DNS management and offers the flexibility to cater to diverse operational requirements within a single umbrella organization.
Multi-Tenancy addresses the complexity of managing internet access and policies across different departments, subsidiaries, or customer accounts within a large enterprise or service provider setting. This feature allows businesses to:
- Manage end-user devices or network settings across the entire organization
- Rapidly deploy DNS settings to a large number of devices, utilizing tools like Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM)
- Provide team members with tailor-made access to view or modify DNS configurations
- Organize Profiles (policies) and Devices into Sub-Organizations for better control and delegation
- Centralized Management: One-stop shop to manage the overall DNS policy and Profiles for various branches or units.
- Customizable Access: Grant selected permissions to team members to manage different aspects of the organization's assets.
- Segmented Control: Create Sub-Organizations representing different departments or customer groups, each with its custom settings.
- Compliance and Security: Option to lock down resolvers to pre-defined IP addresses, enhancing security and ensuring compliance with company policies.
- Operational Efficiency: Share Profiles between Sub-Organizations to maintain consistency and streamline the application of changes. Enforce Global Profiles and avoid duplication.
- Enhanced Administration: Update essential details, manage 2FA/MFA settings, and control data storage preferences from the My Organization tab.
To leverage Multi-Tenancy within Organization accounts, businesses need to:
- Navigate to the My Organization tab to manage company details and customization settings of main organization.
- Invite team members with appropriate privileges into your main organization.
- Create and manage Sub Organizations to represent distinct units with their dedicated assets. Management and permissioning scheme is identical to the parent organization.
