Active directory identity
Manage identity and access of services and applications
Azure AD is a highly-available and highly-scalable identity management service for small and large organizations. It enables organizations to use their corporate credentials to authenticate to new or existing applications, factoring out the authentication process and eliminating the need for many different identities. Organizations that already use on-premise Active Directory can synchronize their identities with Azure AD to provide seamless integration between on-premises and cloud resources.
Enable single sign-on to simplify user access to thousands of cloud applications from Windows, Mac and iOS devices. Users can launch cloud applications from a personalized web-based.
Migrate on-premises apps to Azure with no identity worries
Take advantage of Azure Active Directory Domain Services features like domain join, LDAP, NT LAN Manager (NTLM), and Kerberos authentication, which are widely used in enterprises. Migrate legacy directory-aware applications running on-premises to Azure, without having to worry about identity requirements. On Linux and Windows Server virtual machines on Azure, easily deploy line-of-business applications. You don’t have to deploy domain controllers as Azure virtual machines or use a VPN connection back to your identity infrastructure.
Azure Active Directory Domain Services gives you enterprise-grade scale and reliability. It’s a highly-available service hosted in globally-distributed datacenters.
Get seamless access to any application from virtually any location or device
By using one identity, users can launch all of their cloud applications from a personalized, web-based access panel or mobile app and have the same experience whether they’re working on Windows, Mac, Android, or iOS devices. With the Azure AD Application Proxy, you can go beyond cloud applications and publish on-premises web applications to provide highly secure remote access and single sign-on.
Engage with users outside your organization while maintaining control over your sensitive apps and data. It’s easier than ever for customers and partners to connect with your business using a simple sign-up experience that works with multiple identity providers, including Microsoft, LinkedIn, Google, and Facebook. You can also use customization options to modify the web and mobile experience to fit your brand.
