Key Benefits of Microsoft Azure Active Directory (AD)

Centralized Control for Simplified Management

Azure AD combines core directory services, application access management, and identity governance, giving developers centralized policies and rules for delivering access control to their apps. These capabilities empower your IT team to sync users, groups, and devices in a simplified, manageable process.

Secure Remote Access

Azure AD provides secure remote access to on-premises SaaS applications (including thousands of pre-integrated SaaS apps) using single sign-on access. AD’s multi-factor authentication policies allow application access security for both on-premises and cloud apps. This convenience is extremely appealing in today’s “work anytime from anywhere” Modern Workplace culture. Users can access all the apps they need without having to remember multiple passwords, in a secure manner, even while remote.

Offload IT Micro-Tasks

Azure Active Directory includes a self-service password reset feature, allowing users to create a new password if/when they have forgotten theirs. This feature saves tremendous time and effort for your IT team, eliminating the countless trouble-tickets generated by this universal problem and freeing up your IT team time to attend to more pressing, large-scale initiatives.
