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.
Azure IAM supports many third-party cloud services, so you can integrate access control with your entire application portfolio.
Identity and cloud-level access management to meet all needs. Support a small number of small business users or thousands of employees.
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.
