Hybrid Cloud Management for On-Premise Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft 365

You can manage a hybrid organization in which Users have access to both on-premises and cloud applications. Also you can Sync new users, contacts, and groups created in on-premises / hosted Active Directory to the cloud automatically.

Customers using ADSync Utility can enable users to sign in and access cloud services using their on-premises password.
