Are you struggling with Identity and Access Management (IAM) challenges? In a recent webinar, Josh Gural, discussed the methods and options to get your IAM to the cloud and shows you how leveraging Azure Active Directory and IAM management in the cloud will help deliver your services to your users.
IAM is a means to identify users in a system and can be broken down into 4 pillars: secure access to your resources; protect applications and devices; defend against malicious login attempts; and safeguard credentials. This webinar focuses on what IAM is in Azure and how to utilize Azure Active Directory (AAD).
Azure Active Directory is the IAM mechanism for Azure and Office 365, but it also can be the IAM mechanism for many other applications such as Google Apps for Business and Salesforce, and has a free edition included with every Azure subscription.
Josh discusses the 6 key areas covered with Azure Active Directory:
- Seamless, highly secure access
- Comprehensive identity protection
- Efficient management and compliance at scale
- Customer and partner identities (B2B and B2C)
- Identity platform for developers
- Identity for IaaS
You’ll also learn the best way to sync your identities including a hybrid identity decision tree to help decide which option is best for your company for what you’re trying to accomplish, as well as digging into the different architecture options. Plus, you’ll learn about Azure AD Connect which is the product used to connect your on-prem environment to your cloud presence, and much more like interacting with business partners and clients, role-based access control and of course, security with IAM in Azure.
