What is an identity and access administrator?

An identity and access administrator automates the authentication and authorization of identities for users, devices, Azure resources, and applications with an environment. This provides a seamless experience and offers the self-service management capabilities for all users. Thus, the identity and access administrator ensures that all identities are verified explicitly to support Zero Trust principles.
