Creating Azure Active Directory

What is Azure Active Directory

Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is Microsoft’s cloud-based identity and access management service, which helps employees sign in and access resources in:

  • External resources, such as Microsoft Office 365, the Azure portal, and thousands of other SaaS applications.
  • Internal resources, such as apps on your corporate network and intranet, along with any cloud apps developed by your own organization.

Identity and Access Management as a service (IDaaS)

Azure Active Directory is an Identity and Access Management as a service (IDaaS) solution that extends your on-premises directories into the cloud and provides single sign-on to Azure, Office 365 and thousands of cloud (SaaS) apps and access to web apps you run on-premises.
Built for ease of use, Azure Active Directory enables enterprise mobility and collaboration and delivers advanced identity protection through multi-factor authentication (MFA), security reports, audits, alerts and adaptive conditional access policies based on device health, user location and risk level.
