Microsoft Azure Identity And Access Management
Cloud Services—Platforms And Solutions—Microsoft Azure Identity And Access Management

Centrally manage identities across your data center and the cloud with a mobile device management software solution, providing secure single sign on to all of your applications. Managing identity is just as important in the public cloud as it is on premises. To help with this, Microsoft Azure Identity And Access Management supports several different cloud identity technologies. You can run Microsoft Windows Server Active Directory (Microsoft AD) in the cloud using virtual machines created with Microsoft Azure virtual machines. This approach makes sense when you’re using Microsoft Azure to extend your on premises data center into the cloud. You can use Microsoft Azure Active Directory to give your users single sign on to Software—as—a—Service (SaaS) applications. Microsoft’s Office 365 uses this technology, for example, and applications running on Microsoft Azure or other cloud platforms can also use it. Applications running in the cloud or on premises can use Microsoft Azure Active Directory Access Control.

Microsoft Azure Identity and Access Management solutions help IT protect access to applications and resources across the corporate data center and into the cloud, enabling additional levels of validation such as multi factor authentication and conditional access policies. Monitoring suspicious activity through advanced security reporting, auditing and alerting helps mitigate potential security issues. Microsoft Azure Active Directory Premium provides single sign on to thousands of cloud (SaaS) apps and access to web apps you run on—premises. Microsoft Azure Active Directory extends on premises Microsoft Active Directory into the cloud, enabling users to use their primary organizational account to not only sign in to their domain joined devices and company resources, but also all the web and SaaS applications needed for their job. Not only do users not have to manage multiple sets of usernames and passwords, application access can be automatically provisioned or de provisioned based on organizational groups and their status as an employee.

With single sign—on. users only have to enter one set of credentials to access to their web apps in the cloud and behind the firewall—via desktops, smartphones and tablets. This greatly increases productivity while keeping data secure. Policy—driven password security and multi—factor authentication ensure that only authorized users get access to sensitive data. You can implement more demanding password policies such as required length, complexity and restrictions on password reuse, as well as session timeout and password reset self—service policy to heighten protection without impeding your users. With single sign—on desktop, users can leverage the secure profiles of laptop and desktop computers.
