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 Windows Server Active Directory (Microsoft AD) in the cloud using virtual machines created with Azure virtual machines. This approach makes sense when you’re using Azure to extend your on premises data center into the cloud. You can use Azure Active Directory to give your users single sign on to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications. Office 365 uses this technology, for example, and applications running on Azure or other cloud platforms can also use it. Applications running in the cloud or on premises can use 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. Azure Active Directory Premium provides single sign on to thousands of cloud (SaaS) apps and access to web apps you run on-premises. 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.

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. Synchronize identities between directories, databases, and applications. With Microsoft Azure Identity And Access Management you get self-service passwords, group, and certificate management. Increase admin security with policies, privileged access, and roles and thwart identity theft with Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM). Common identity — simplify identity life-cycle management with automated workflows, business rules and easy integration with heterogeneous platforms across the data center and cloud. Automate identity and group provisioning based on business policy and implement workflow driven provisioning through a single interface.
Self–Service And Single Sign-On
Employees are more productive when they have a single username and password to remember and a consistent experience from every device. They also save time when they can perform self-service tasks like resetting a forgotten password, or requesting access to an application, without waiting for assistance from the helpdesk. 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.
As employees bring their personal devices to work and adopt readily available SaaS applications, maintaining control over their applications across corporate data centers and public cloud platforms has become a significant challenge. Microsoft has proven experience in identity management through Windows Server Active Directory and Forefront Identity Manager. Now Microsoft has extended our offerings to provide you with a powerful set of cloud based identity and access management solutions on Azure Active Directory. Unify access — reduce the number of usernames and passwords needed to login. Ensure admin accounts are only going where they need to go and doing what they need to do. Groups can automatically update their membership to ensure only the right people have access to your resources. Access security — enable application access security by enforcing rules based multi factor authentication for both on premises and cloud applications.
