We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution's ease of use is one of its most valuable features."
"Conditional Access is a helpful feature because it allows us to provide better security for our users."
"If you want to replicate a website at the frontend in Azure, it's very easy to do it globally."
"It's not intuitive and we use it mainly for our Office 365 files. The integration between the two is interesting. However, the learning curve is high."
"The most important things of Azure Active Directory are the security and the facility to manage all the services and users. It is very easy to manage users and assign roles, permissions, and access. At the same time, it is a very secure environment. Microsoft takes security very seriously. They take care of all the security and all the factors to prevent any kind of data or information compromise."
"The interface is well laid out and it is easy to navigate."
"The single sign-on of the solution is the most valuable aspect."
"Many of its features are valuable, including: facilitating application authentication, privileged access management, processes for attestation, and access reviews."
"The user self-service program and the Office 365 provisioning service feature are the most valuable. It is a very easy and feature-rich solution that gives priority to the users and security."
"I found the solution to be stable."
"It is easy to use."
"One feature that is really important to us is the ability to create secure notes."
"It would be ideal if the solution moved to a passwordless type of environment. It's the future of authentification. It's also more secure and convenient."
"In terms of stability, sometimes the more applications you integrate, the more it becomes a little bit unstable."
"One thing that bothers me about Azure AD is that I can't specify login hours. I have to use an on-premises instance of Active Directory if I want to specify the hours during which a user can log in. For example, if I want to restrict login to only be possible during working hours, to prevent overtime payments or to prevent lawsuits, I can't do this using only Azure AD."
"Sometimes, what one customer may like, another may not like it. We have had customers asking, "Why is Microsoft forcing us to do this?" For example, when you use Exchange Server on-premise, then you can customize it for your company and these customizations are unlimited. However, if you use Exchange Online or with Microsoft 365, then your ability to make modifications is limited. So, only the cloud versus is limited."
"On-premise capabilities for information and identity management need improvement."
"I would like to see improvements made when it comes to viewing audit logs, sign-in logs, and resource tags."
"The integration between the Azure active directory and the traditional active directory could be improved upon."
"Its area of improvement is more about the synchronization of accounts and the intervals for that. Sometimes, there're customers with other network challenges, and it takes a while for synchronization to happen to the cloud. There is some component of their on-prem that is delaying things getting to the cloud. The turnaround time for these requests is very time-sensitive. I don't mean this as derogatory for this service, but in my experience, that happens a lot."
"The solution could be easier to use and I found it to be very complex involving many steps."
"They can include the Mobile Device Management (MDM) feature."
"Its user interface should be better, and there should probably be more information about scalability."
"I struggle a little bit with the mobile app. As a browser extension, it works really well, and we are able to get to what we need to. However, on the phone, it's not quite as easy to navigate."
"The cost of Azure AD is one of the biggest benefits, as it is available for use free of charge when you start with Office 365."
"For the Czech people, the solution is not cheap, as we are not a rich country. However, for most countries, the product pricing is acceptable."
"The basic tier of Azure Active Directory is free, so many users use the service for free. For a small company having the security and compliance that Azure offers is a great benefit. For small companies that are using the basic services, not having to pay for Azure Active Directory is the main asset because they can manage their users and have authentications tools and security."
"MFA and P2 licenses for two Azures for fully-enabled scenarios and features cost a lot of money. This is where Okta is trying to get the prices down."
"The pricing for companies and businesses is okay, it's fair. But if you are trying to teach someone about Azure AD, there is no licensing option for that... It would be nice to have a 'learning' license, one that is cheaper for a single person."
"We got a good deal. If you get rid of all the products providing features that Azure Suite can provide, then it makes sense cost-wise."
"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."
"I was not terribly alarmed with the pricing, and am pleased with the fact that a home license is included with each business license."
