What is Azure AD?


Posted on 04 Sep, 2020 @ 08:47 AM by Zane Paulo Zane Paulo


Azure AD (Active Directory) is Microsoft’s multi-tenant, cloud-based Identity as a Service (IDaaS) solution.

It provides organisations of all sizes an affordable and easy to use means of enabling Single Sign-On (SSO) to thousands of first and third-party Software as a Service (SaaS) applications like Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365), Salesforce.com, ServiceNow, Concur and others. For organisations building their own applications, Azure AD can be easily integrated providing a world-class identity solution.

In addition to SSO, Azure AD has enhanced capabilities for robust identity management and security, such as multi-factor authentication, self-service password reset, privileged identity management, role based access control, application usage monitoring, auditing and security monitoring and alerting.
