Azure AD Identity Governance

Azure AD Identity Governance gives you powerful tools for auditing and policing resource access. Improve your visibility and make assigning access easier for end users and your IT department.

Data is one of your most important assets – the lifeblood of your organisation’s operations.

It’s also one of your biggest risks – the constant threat of information being misused or falling into the wrong hands.

Forrester, citing the persistence of remote work, predicts that internal incidents will be responsible for 33% of breaches in 2021

You need visibility of who has access to what. You need the ability to adjust levels of access, so only the right people have access. And you need to do it all while making life easy for the end user!

That’s where Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) Identity Governance comes in.

Balance security, productivity – and everything else

Azure AD Identity Governance lets you monitor and audit access to your key resources – ensuring people only have the access levels they need (and you can prove it!).

  • Police access with powerful auditing tools and automated notifications.
  • Reduce the burden on your IT department through peer collaboration.
  • Prevent security breaches by maintaining appropriate access levels.

You can’t control what you can’t see

If you don’t have visibility and control over your data, and the management of your resources and privileges, you’re leaving yourself open to mission critical issues.

Your challenges:

Permissions errors

Users are granted access to resources they shouldn’t be – creating a serious security risk.

Compromised accounts

It only takes a single compromised account to wreak untold havoc in your organisation.

Internal threats

Malicious actors are ready to exploit security gaps caused by user mistakes or carelessness.

Unpredictable paths

Projects and goals evolve – leaving behind bloated groups and inappropriate access levels.

Poor record keeping

A weak audit trail makes it difficult to remember and justify the reason for a user’s access.

Outdated access

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.

Regain control of your data

Azure AD Identity Governance gives you verifiable controls to ensure users only have access to the resources they need – and you know what they are doing with it!

You'll benefit from:

Improved visibility

Enable peer review and auditing of users accessing highly privileged roles. Receive notification of any privileged role activation, which helps prevent the assignment of access falling out of date and leading to potential compromises in your security or governance strategy.

Flexible collaboration

Easily collaborate with parties outside your organisation who are in another directory. Quickly assign specific approvers to manage any requests coming from that organisation.

Faster processes

Assign and remove permissions – for internal and external users – to resource collections, all in one go. Save your IT team a lot of time and headaches, without compromising your governance strategy.

Recurring security optimisation

Approve or deny continued access to a group of resources, and organise or update older or changing groups – all while retaining control of the fast-moving access and permissions environment your organisation exists in.

Identity Governance features

Click the headings below to learn more about key management and automation features.

Privileged identity management

Privileged identity management (PIM) notifies you of any privileged role activation. This helps prevent the assignment of privileged access becoming out of date – and all the security implications that then arise.

With PIM you can:

  • Add and remove users from privileged roles
  • ‘Elevate’ access just-in-time
  • Control and audit the access elevation
Entitlement management

Entitlement management brings you the concept of ‘access packages.’ These are collections of resources (such as security groups) that internal and external users can apply for, all in one go.

It allows:

  • Members of your directory to apply for access packages, along with external users
  • Up to two approval stages to be added – this ensures that users are checked
  • Members to be removed from all resources in the package
  • Members to be removed from your tenant at the same time
Access reviews

Access reviews are a flexible tool allowing members of a group or an access package to self-review. In the case that they are not trusted to do this, a group owner or another individual can carry out the review.

Access reviews can be combined with access packages to elevate your identity management.

  • Reviewers can approve or deny continued access or ignore the review.
  • You can configure the review to interpret ‘ignore’ as ‘deny’.
  • Decisions taken during the review can be actioned, if required.
