AWS Identity & Access Management

We used IAM to give access to different department with different services. No need to use different accounts to use different services.

Azure Active Directory

[Microsoft] Azure Active Directory is perfect for single sign on. We have all our SaaS applications integrated with it. Also, the opportunity to have a single place for all the Microsoft Applications and Saas Applications using one account.Sometimes, the hybrid configuration is not appropriated for some internal non windows applications, due to the complexity.

Pros

AWS Identity & Access Management

  • Assigning the right resources to the right people.
  • It gives us the ability to set 2FA which help us to identity users during login.
  • Great tool to small & large company.

Azure Active Directory

  • Conditional Access -- this is one of the biggest tools that any admin needs when it comes to securing when, where, and how users are accessing information. Especially if the information contains sensitive data types.
  • Multi-factor Authentication -- we have all our employees configured for MFA. This is incredibly easy to configure with Azure, as well as defining when MFA should be used through Conditional Access.
  • Audit Logs -- being able to track and identify a user's activity is pretty critical, especially when in incident response mode.

Cons

AWS Identity & Access Management

  • It has tons of ready-to-use rules but those rules are not explained well.
  • Documentation needs some improvement.
sandeep singh | TrustRadius Reviewer

Azure Active Directory

  • There are a lot of features, so it can get confusing to get to where you want to go
  • Some areas do not offer as much granularity as desired
  • Hard to find certain features that are synonymous with on-premises Active Directory

IAM is so flexible and easy to use. Even helped us to set 2FA & set other password policies.

Based on 29 answers
Microsoft has offered Azure Active Directory as a solution for a couple of decades now, so they have seen and anticipated almost any issue that an organization may face and can therefore help. The cloud offering of Azure Active Directory offers some additional "self healing" or monitoring services that can minimize the need for a service call. However, as with most large companies supporting a fast growing market, there may be some gaps in service knowledge (and particularly processing) from the front line / tier one staff as they follow a corporate script at first contact.

Alternatives Considered

AWS Identity & Access Management

I used Azure services a little but I think IAM is the best one so we are using IAM and will keep using this.

Azure Active Directory

I've worked with both Okta and Auth0 at various clients. Consistently, we find that Azure Active Directory provides a more seamless experience, better integration with IT tooling, and a more developer-friendly experience. In the past Azure AD has lacked some of the customization capabilities that Okta and Auth0 provide, but that has changed (especially with External Identities).

Return on Investment

AWS Identity & Access Management

  • Everything is under one account. If you use more AWS you get billed less.
  • Sharing files and other documents in different departments is so easy.
  • Easy & fast downloads.

Azure Active Directory

  • AAD has saved my organization a lot of time in user setups, restoring mailboxes or individual messages, auditing logins/logoffs or data changes and running reports.
  • It added functionality we did not previously have, such as reporting on user behavior in their systems (what they work on and what applications are used).
  • My IT Support Department has benefited greatly from adding AAD by being able to see software update needs for each workstation, managing startup items running in the system, checking versions of definitions and policies applied to each workstation and much more.
