Azure Active Directory is an ever-expanding set of cloud service created by Microsoft that offers secure identity and access management solution. IT admins can use Azure AD to control access to apps and app resources. Azure AD provides you access to various resources like Microsoft Office 365, Azure portal, SaaS applications and in-house apps developed by your own organization. Azure AD ensures authentication using OAuth and SAML protocols. Improve the sign-in experience in your enterprise by enabling single sign-on (SSO) across applications. Azure AD enhances the security of SSO by coupling with conditional access that provides security capabilities like cloud-scale identity protection, risk in access control, multi-factor authentication, and conditional access policies.
