The fact that it's an ecosystem in itself is probably the best one. It fits into the whole Microsoft stack. Everything this year is all about stacks, and I tend to agree. The inter-operability and complexity of things these days is just too big. These things change too much. So you don't really want to be stuck between three technology stacks that are changing. If there's a defect, you won't know which one it's in. Trying to hold the service provider to account is quite hard. I'd probably say, yeah, stay with the stack if you can. View full review »

Apart from MFA and the SSO capabilities, I would say one of the amazing things is that you don't have a limit in the objects that you can create in Active Directory in Azure. Azure AD Premium doesn't have a limit in terms of User/Computer objects you can create, meaning that you can have a massive AD domain and it won't matter because Azure AD can handle that. You can have 100.000 users in your domain and keep growing if you want to. Azure AD can grow as required and since it is PaaS you don't need to worry about provision more hardware to keep performance up. View full review »

The self-password reset if it's enabled and configured properly, really helps a company be able to reset rather than getting IT involved. Additionally, the capability of adding that single sign-on for other pieces that you might want to run through Azure Active Directory, such as Office 365 or Salesforce or any number of different third party authentications that you need can be done through Azure Directory Premium.

Principle consultant at Active Data Consulting Services Pty Ltd
The centralized management feature is very valuable. Being able to delete stuff in one place, from any location is really great for us. In addition, we do not have to deploy lots of machines all over the place to run things as a service, which is how we like to deploy things, just as a service. So, this makes it easier to deploy, easy to set up, and work with. It is easy to use, and makes quality of life issues a reality for us. View full review »

The most beneficial feature would be the effectiveness of having a hybrid set-up. When we need to create an account, we create it in Auto Activator 3. Even though the users are created and managed in Windows really, we can use all the benefits of the cloud, as well. View full review »

We find the Integration accessory integration the most valuable feature. You can have your application integrated with an actual directory. You don't need to do much code, you can use interfaces and it's a direct integration. So, no need to worry about the requirements of your application. View full review »

Most of the time, this product is doing purpose-built solutions. Some people on my team like the multi-step authentication. Others like the fact that it secures their resources externally. View full review »

The most valuable feature is the factor identification. I find that it is natural integration, and it is just a natural step. I do not need to do anything else. View full review »
