Azure AD is a cloud-based identity and access management service that helps your employees sign in and access resources in your company. Azure AD also protects your company’s data and applications from unauthorized access.
Azure AD includes many features to help you manage your users, groups, and applications:
User management: You can add, delete, and update user accounts in Azure AD. You can also assign roles to users, so they can access the resources they need.
Group management: You can create and manage groups in Azure AD. Groups can be used to give users access to resources, such as applications and file shares.
Application management: You can add and manage applications in Azure AD. You can also give users access to applications, so they can sign in and use them.
Azure AD also includes features to help you secure your company’s data:
Multi-factor authentication: You can require users to sign in with more than one factor, such as a password and a phone call or text message.
Device management: You can require users to sign in with a managed device, so you can control which devices can access your company’s data.
Application security: You can require users to sign in with an Azure AD application, so you can control which applications can access your company’s data.
Data security: You can encrypt your company’s data at rest and in transit.
Azure AD pricing is based on the number of users and the features you use. Azure AD includes a free tier for up to 10 users.
