As companies add more cloud services to their IT environments, the process of managing identities is getting more complex.
Admins must develop sound policies around role-based access. They must grant rights to users who need information to get work done. And they must be able to automatically take away those privileges when people leave the company or change roles.
Azure Active Directory is an identity and access management cloud solution that provides a set of capabilities to manage users and groups. Azure AD also helps secure access to applications such as
Microsoft online services (Office 365, Azure, Windows Intune, Dynamics CRM Online) and a world of non-Microsoft SaaS applications.
Azure AD can be integrated with on-prem Active Directory deployments to simplify user management and provide Single Sign-On.
Multi-factor authentication prevents unauthorized access to both on-premises and cloud applications by providing an additional level of authentication.
In the end, Azure AD will simplify user access to thousands of cloud applications from Windows, Mac and iOS devices.
