Azure Active Directory

Microsoft Azure Active Directory is the gold standard for user management in the industry. It's one of the things that Microsoft does very well as far as adding a fully featured user management capability into one place. It supports oauth for web applications and is easily integrated into custom .net web apps. It also easily manages all the users and hooks directly into other Microsoft services.

Pros

GateKeeper Proximity

  • Single sign-on
  • Tracking logins
  • Time savings
  • Improved security
Mark Natale | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

GateKeeper Proximity

  • User setup. This has improved over the last year.
  • Battery usage.
Mark Natale | 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

They always answer the phone and someone is available to help. Emails are answered immediately.

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

GateKeeper Proximity

By far the most reasonably priced solution. The customer support is top-notch.
Mark Natale | TrustRadius Reviewer

Azure Active Directory

In our particular scenario, we chose [Microsoft] Azure Active Directory because it has integration with tools and applications we use on a day to day basis, such as inTune, Autopilot, Office 365, Exchange Online, Dynamics 365, just to named a few.

Return on Investment

GateKeeper Proximity

  • It makes all of our users more productive.
  • It saves it's cost in time spent logging into each computer and website.
Mark Natale | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
