Azure Active Directory

The cloud has paved the way to greater productivity. But as users collaborate across documents, devices and locations, these expanded entry points have made companies more susceptible to online attacks.

Verifying identity is the first step in cloud security. Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is Microsoft’s cloud-based directory and identity management service that creates a unified identity to ensure your corporate assets remain in safe hands across on-premises platforms and cloud-based applications.

By enabling single sign-on to thousands of on-premises and cloud-based apps, employees and partners instantly gain access to specific resources they need to stay productive. Underlying technologies and a simple dashboard equip IT admins to more closely monitor sign-in activity, extend rights and protect their IT infrastructure.


5 Reasons to Choose Azure AD

1. Save Time With Single Sign-On to Cloud & On-Premises Apps

Azure Active Directory provides secure single sign-on to cloud and on-premises applications such as Office 365 and thousands of SaaS applications including Dropbox, Salesforce and DocuSign.


2. Create a Seamless Experience Across All Devices


Azure AD enable users to launch apps from a personalized web-based access panel, mobile app, Office 365 or custom company portals using existing credentials. It also ensures a consistent experience across iOS, Mac OS X, Android and Windows devices.

3. Securely Access On-Premises Web Applications From Anywhere

Secure remote access capabilities like multi-factor authentication, conditional access policies and group-based access management allow users to safely and remotely open web applications.


4. Easily Connect On-Premises & Cloud-Based Directories


Maintain a consistent set of users, groups, passwords and devices across both cloud and on-premises directories with a few clicks.

5. Conserve Resources With Self-Service Functionalities

Advanced self-service features such as user password reset and app management minimize help desk calls and empower users to securely work across cloud and on-premises resources with minimal interruption.
