Azure Active Directory (AAD)

Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is Microsoft’s cloud-based directory and identity management service.

It combines core directory services, advanced identity protection and application access management, and delivers single sign-on (SSO) access to on-premises and cloud applications, helping users to stay productive.

  • Quickly integrate identity and access management (IAM) into existing applications.
  • Centralise authentication for a diverse range of applications and services, accessible from anywhere.
  • Enhance security and respond to advanced threats in real time.

Why Azure AD?

It’s user-orientated

Streamline password and authentication processes, engage with users outside your organisation while maintaining control over sensitive apps and data, give employees self-service options and create a consistent experience.

It’s cloud-ready

Users and collaborators can launch all of their cloud applications from a personalised, web-based access panel, wherever they are, while you retain complete control over what’s accessible.

It’s secure

Detect and mitigate breaches, set up alerts and monitoring, leverage machine learning to identify unusual access patterns and have the information you need to respond to threats quickly and accurately.

The complete solution for identity, security and productivity

Azure AD is built for the company with its workforce at its heart. Designed to increase efficiency, empower workers and encourage collaboration, the solution optimises productivity across devices, data, apps and infrastructure within robust, secure parameters, controlled by you.

A unique solution

Choose what you need, from conditional access with multi-factor authentication and password-free login options, to role-based access control and intelligent security monitoring capabilities.

Layer these features to create a unique solution that works exactly how your business needs it to.
