Identity and access management for the cloud
Azure Active Directory is a comprehensive identity and access management cloud solution that provides a robust set of capabilities to manage users and groups. It helps secure access to on-premises and cloud applications, including Microsoft online services like Office 365 and many non-Microsoft SaaS applications.
Simplify user access to any cloud app
Enable single sign-on to simplify user access to thousands of cloud applications from Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS devices. Users can launch applications from a personalized web-based access panel or mobile app using their company credentials. With the Application Proxy module you can go beyond SaaS applications and publish on-premises web applications to provide secure remote access and single sign-on to them.
Protect sensitive data and applications
Azure Multi-Factor Authentication prevents unauthorized access to both on-premises and cloud applications by providing an additional level of authentication. Protect your business and mitigate potential threats with security monitoring and alerts and machine learning-based reports that identify inconsistent access patterns.
