Azure AD (Azure Active Directory) is a Microsoft-based cloud-based access and identity management service. Azure Active Directory helps your employees enter and access resources in external resources, such as Microsoft Office 365, Azure Portal, thousands of other SaaS applications and internal resources, such as applications on corporate and intranet networks, and cloud applications developed by your organization.
Smooth and safe access and connect users with the applications they need. Connect all users with all your applications and data seamlessly. Unparalleled consolidation with Active Directory, Active Directory Federation, Office 365, and thousands of pre-integrated SaaS programs help facilitate identity on one platform. Reduce friction and increase security with fewer password authentication.
Comprehensive identity protection to protect user accounts and improve security. Survive today’s threats while increasing identity security and access based on user, location, device, data, and application context. Reduce risk by learning cloud-based automation and smart security signals from all Microsoft products that provide insight into your identity policy.
Azure AD SAML
Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is an open standard that allows identity providers (IDPs) to provide authorization credentials to service providers (SP). What this term means is that you can use a set of credentials to enter many different websites. It’s much easier to manage one login for each user than to manage separate logins to email, CRM, Active Directory, and so on.
Effective management and compliance are widespread and remain in control and reduce costs. Automate workflow processes to manage user accounts and life cycle management to meet your growing business needs. Spread policies that are consistent and monitor access rights. Save time and resources using self-service account management.
