Azure Active Directory (AD) is Microsoft’s flagship cloud-based identity management service.

Combining core directory services, advanced identity protection, and application access management, Azure AD delivers single sign-on (SSO) access to on-premises and cloud applications to keep your users productive.

Sitting at the heart of your IT environment, Azure AD takes your identity and access management (IAM) to the next level.

Quickly integrate IAM into your existing applications, simplify authentication management to ensure secure access from anywhere, and enhance security so you can respond to threats in real time.

Organisations that deploy Microsoft Azure AD benefit from a 123% return on investment.
