Azure Identity And Access Management

Microsoft has strict controls that restrict access to Azure by Microsoft employees. Azure also enables customers to control access to their environments, data, and applications.

Azure Protect Your Accounts Against Unauthorized Access

Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is Microsoft’s central authentication platform for security, identity management and multi-device access. Supports applications implemented in the cloud and in the office.

 

 Enterprise Cloud Directory

Azure Active Directory is a comprehensive identity and access management solution in the cloud. It combines core directory services, advanced identity governance, security, and application access management. Azure Active Directory makes it easy for developers to build policy-based identity management into their applications. Azure Active Directory Premium includes additional features to meet the advanced identity and access needs of enterprise organizations. Azure Active Directory enables a single identity management capability across on-premises, cloud, and mobile solutions.

Key Features of Azure Identity & Access Management

Identity is important in the cloud because employees access remotely sensitive data. Azure Identity Access Management is used to store user identities in the cloud and provide reliable and secure access control. With this service, only the appropriate users access the data.

Advanced Connection Methods

Do not rely solely on passwords. Use additional authentication to prevent account hijacking and other security attacks.

Powerful Integration

Azure IAM supports many third-party cloud services, so you can integrate access control with your entire application portfolio.

 

Highly scalable

Identity and cloud-level access management to meet all needs. Support a small number of small business users or thousands of employees.

Multi-Factor Authentication

Microsoft Azure provides Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). This helps safeguard access to data and applications and enables regulatory compliance while meeting user demand for a simple sign-in process for both on-premises and cloud applications. It delivers strong authentication via a range of easy verification options—phone call, text message, or mobile app notification—allowing users to choose the method they prefer.

Access Monitoring And Logging

Security reports are used to monitor access patterns and to proactively identify and mitigate potential threats. Microsoft administrative operations, including system access, are logged to provide an audit trail if unauthorized or accidental changes are made. Customers can turn on additional access monitoring functionality in Azure and use third-party monitoring tools to detect additional threats. Customers can request reports from Microsoft that provide information about user access to their environments.
