Azure Active Directory

Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) provides an easy way for businesses to manage identity and access, both in the cloud and on-premises. Your users can use the same work or school account for single sign-on to any cloud and on-premises web application.  Your users can use their favorite devices, including iOS, Mac OS X, Android, and Windows. Your organization can protect sensitive data and applications both on-premises and in the cloud with integrated multi-factor authentication ensuring secure local and remote access. Azure AD extends your on-premises directories so that information workers can use a single organizational account to securely and consistently access their corporate resources. Azure AD also offers comprehensive reports, analytics, and self-service capabilities to reduce costs and enhance security. The Azure AD SLA ensures that your business runs smoothly at all times and can be scaled to enterprise levels.
