LAS VEGAS - Feb. 16, 2017 -- Pacific Timesheet, the enterprise time, expense, asset and log management tool used by leading companies worldwide, announced today its new seamless cloud-to-cloud integration with Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). Pacific Timesheet customers using their Microsoft network can now access their Pacific Timesheet applications using user credentials managed in Active Directory. The connection between  Azure AD  and Pacific Timesheet will allow customers to rapidly adopt Pacific Timesheet while complying with an IT department's cloud security policies.

"We are extremely excited to announce our integration of Microsoft Azure Active Directory with Pacific Timesheet. It's a boon to any organization that needs to deploy and manage its user-base flexibly and fast. With this Azure Active Directory integration, Pacific Timesheet's customers will now have a bullet-proof turn-key single sign-on solution when using Pacific Timesheet in the cloud," said Ronald Kfoury, President and CEO of Pacific Timesheet. "Pacific Timesheet, a long-time Microsoft partner, is pleased to extend our relationship by completing this integration. In addition, our customers' users will now be able to seamlessly connect with Pacific Timesheet through their Microsoft network or Office 365 account."

"We are glad Pacific Timesheet now supports Microsoft Azure Active Directory for single sign-on access across its mobile- and cloud-based solutions," said Alex Simons, Director of Program Manager, Azure Active Directory at Microsoft. "Simplifying access to best-of-breed apps such as Pacific Timesheet, is key to improving productivity."

At the core of the Pacific Timesheet Azure Active Directory integration is streamlined single sign-on access:

  1. The Pacific Timesheet and Azure Active Directory will immediately enable single sign-on (SSO) for Pacific Timesheet customers. In addition, the integration will allow administrators centralized control over Pacific Timesheet user authentication and password management.
  2. This Pacific Timesheet Azure Active Directory integration is built upon Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0, a leading authentication protocol that dramatically reduces security risks and provides protection against phishing and other security threats.
  3. The Pacific Timesheet Azure Active Directory integration will provide users secure access to Pacific Timesheet using their AD credentials on any device. New customers can easily setup and try Pacific Timesheet's Azure AD authentication by connecting with Pacific Timesheet through the Azure Active Directory Marketplace.
  4. Pacific Timesheet will now also be easily accessible through Office 365, when Office 365 is integrated with Microsoft Active Directory and Azure Active Directory.
Pacific Timesheet's time, expense and asset tracking tools are used by more than 3,000 companies and subsidiaries in many industries such as Construction, Field Services, Pharma, Manufacturing and Services. Given that its applications can touch virtually every employee, Azure Active Directory single-sign-on is critical to launching and expanding Pacific Timesheet's applications to its customers' employees. Many leading companies use Pacific Timesheet including Ambac, Applied Materials, Australian National Transportation Safety Board, Celgene, Ceres, Everytown, Fiserv, FMC, Harvard University, Joy Global, KLX Aerospace, lululemon athletica, N.O.A.A., Novozymes, University of Virginia and WPPGTS.
