Security, Compliance, and Identity Fundamentals for Azure

What is Azure Active Directory?

AAD is Microsoft’s cloud-based identity and access management service.  It is used by organizations to enable their employees, guests, and others to sign in and access the resources they need. There are two such as:

  • Internal resources, such as apps on your corporate network and intranet, and cloud apps developed by your own organization.
  • External services, such as Microsoft Office 365, the Azure portal, and any SaaS applications used by your organization.

Azure AD also allows organizations to securely enable the use of personal devices, such as mobiles and tablets, and enable collaboration with business partners and customers.

Azure AD is available in four editions such as Free, Office 365 Apps, Premium P1, and Premium P2.

Azure Active Directory Free – The free version allows you to administer users and create groups, synchronize with on-premises Active Directory, create basic reports, configure self-service password changes for cloud users, and enable single sign-on across Azure, Microsoft 365, and many popular SaaS apps.

Office 365 Apps – The Office 365 Apps edition allows you to do everything included in the free version, plus self-service password reset for cloud users, and device write-back, which offers two-way synchronization between on-premises directories and Azure AD.

Azure Active Directory Premium P1 – The Premium P1 edition includes all the features in the free and Office 365 apps editions.

Azure Active Directory Premium P2 – The Premium P2 offers all the Premium P1 features, and Azure Active Directory Identity Protection to help provide risk-based Conditional Access to your apps and critical company data.
