Microsoft Azure Active Directory Premium Benefits

Consultant with 10,001+ employees
Back in '96, '97, '98, nobody was doing intake. So that was a new thing that came in 2000. And it created the container based inherited permissions, which was new for that stage. Before that it was very static, there wasn't inheritance, there wasn't assertions. Then they introduced that and they've slowly built it, and then it just got too big and old, and really the database that MT's on is just vulnerable to all these attacks. And that's primarily why they want people to get off it. There's about four or five open attacks that make it very easy to both intercept the credential requests, and also attack the database itself. The ability to speed up delivery is a nice benefit, because rather than having external dependencies there's a certain guarantee that if you use anything within that technology platform. Whether it's full of applications, or various other things, there havee already been regression tests by the vendor. And you don't see the same defects that you get when you have integrated systems.

When logging on to Azure AD it's pretty quick. This is because it is managed by Microsoft and there isn't too much administrative overhead for our System Administrators in setting up a bunch of complicated policies to allow the users to log on. Basically we lock down the machine with policies but, the user authentication is much faster and simpler. This is something that the users have noticed. View full review »

We basically use this for Skype. We are using the cloud environment and we need the Active directory to be ticketed so if we can call and they can log in at the moment. Apart from that, we use it for video connections. If people are working from home, it is helpful that it is in the cloud. At the moment, we do not need to go for the VPN, and then we can connect. For this purpose, we use the Azure. We run quite a big business, and it is helpful with the electrodata we have used. View full review »

From a practice point of view, of storing secrets internally on Azure AD, we use the certificate when we can. I would advise to allow an ex-client user to change their password. At present, you can only change your password externally if your password is still valid. If your password is expired, you cannot actually do it through Azure AD. View full review »
