HERE'S WHY

Running an ad-hoc Identity sync allows for syncing identity across the following connected systems at any time rather than waiting for daily automated syncs performed by Drata:

  • IdP (and IdP groups)

  • HRIS

  • Background Checks

  • Infrastructure

  • Version Control

  • MDM

  • External Policy Management

  • Security Training

  • Observability

  • Vulnerability Scanning

  • Offboarding

  • Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR)

  • User Access Review (UAR)

BEFORE DIVING IN

Make sure you have Admin access to your Drata account.
