Pricing and Cost Advice
"Be sure: You know your userbase, e.g., how many users you have. You choose the right license and model that suit your business requirements.""The P1 version costs $6 per user per month.""We have an agreement with Microsoft, and my company pays yearly.""Microsoft has a free version of Azure AD. So, if you don't do a lot of advanced features, then you can use the free version, which is no cost at all because it is underpinning Office 365. Because Microsoft gives it to you as a SaaS, so there are no infrastructure costs whatsoever that you need to incur. If you use the free version, then it is free. If you use the advanced features (that we use), it is a license fee per user.""We pay about $35 per user.""We make sure that we only enable the licenses that are needed for the users, rather than enabling licenses in a blanket fashion.""Azure Active Directory has a very extensive licensing model. Most of the features are available in the free and basic version, and then there are premium P1 and P2 editions. The licensing model is based on how many users you have per month. In Australia, for a P1 license, the cost is 8 dollars. With P1 and P2 licenses, you get a lot of goodies around the security side of things. For example, User Identity Protection is available only in P2. These are extra features that allow you to have a pretty good security posture, but most of the required things are available in the free and basic version.""It is bundled with other services and the pricing is quite reasonable."
