Azure AD B2B Collaboration

Send an open invitation to your partners to securely access corporate resources. Anyone, anytime, anyplace B2B collaboration with Microsoft Azure Active Directory.

Giving users outside of your organisation access to corporate data and resources is scary.

How do you ensure robust protection when your external digital relationships continue to proliferate – each contractor, supplier, and strategic partner with its own inhouse identity system and access requirements?

For many organisations, the answer becomes: added complexity.

More systems and processes that cost your staff time, your business money – and often to the detriment of the security it was intended to create.

93% of organisations believe that bringing all the different aspects of IAM under one solution would greatly benefit their overall security.

Don’t let outdated access cause a break-up

You need to be able to connect with businesses of all types and sizes. Complex collaboration processes will hinder your security and your partner’s productivity – and could even cost you critical business relationships.

Your challenges:

Hybrid identity

You need both on-premises and cloud-based users to access the same apps and resources.

Complex infrastructures

Your current set up makes it hard to connect with external collaborators from other identity systems.


Your existing system is hard to adopt – and isn’t compatible with third party apps and services.


Manually checking and onboarding external partners is time consuming and costly for your business.


Different onboarding and offboarding mechanisms make it challenging to keep your environment secure.

Outdated access

There’s inappropriate access and permissions for users who have left or changed roles.

We have engaged with ThirdSpace on a number of key projects in the IAM space. They have greatly increased the pace at which we’ve been able to adopt new technologies, both in terms of deployment and business transformation services.

Jonathan James Security Officer Welsh Water

I would strongly recommend ThirdSpace. They are experts in their field and will deliver an identity platform that will allow you to navigate securely to the cloud, quickly and seamlessly.

Alistair Sandford Senior Project Manager University of the West of England

We knew of only two companies in the UK capable of delivering the identity management solution we required. After going to tender, we awarded ThirdSpace the contract based on their credentials, technical capability, and cost.

Make a love story out of partner collaboration

Azure AD removes complex collaboration barriers, so you can simply and securely federate with any user, using any identity, and on any device.

You’ll benefit from:

Seamless collaboration

A simple invitation and redemption process lets partners use their existing ID or credentials to access your company's resources.


Developers can use Azure AD business-to-business APIs to customise the invitation process or write applications like self-service sign-up portals.

Protected relationships

Azure AD’s cutting-edge security lets you control appropriate access to your organisation’s data and resources whenever and wherever it’s needed.


Send an invitation to any email address using the portal, or onboard using ‘user flows’ or ‘access packages’ - Azure takes care of the whole authentication and onboarding process.
