What is Azure Active Directory (Azure AD)?
Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is a Microsoft service that allows you to manage access to applications and identities. Azure AD gives you control over Microsoft 365, the Azure portal and more than a thousand SaaS services. In addition, you can manage applications on the corporate network, intranet and applications developed by your organization.
How do Azure AD and Workspace 365 work together?
Workspace 365 integrates Azure AD for the use of Single Sign-On and Multi-factor Authentication. In addition, it is possible to synchronize all users and user groups from the Azure Active Directory or Active Directory to the workspace.
- With Single Sign-On from Azure AD you get access to all your applications in one click, without having to log in over and over again.
- Multi-factor Authentication across the workspace for added security. Requires a second form of authentication.
- Multi-factor authentication on specific applications (with Azure Premium).
- With Workspace 365 it is possible to use our Azure AD Sync Tool. As a result, all user and user groups are synchronized with the workspace, allowing centralized management of rights and users.
