Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is a cloud-based identity and access management (IAM) solution supporting restricted access to applications with Azure Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) built-in, single sign-on (SSO), B2B collaboration controls, self-service password, and integration with Microsoft productivity and cloud storage (Office 365, OneDrive, etc) as well as 3rd party services.Azure Active Directory is a strong choice for Microsoft-friendly companiesAzure Active Directory is being used in our organization as a centralized place to grant access to both our Office 365 cloud resources and our on-site computer login resources. We use it to create new user profiles, reset passwords, monitor and audit sign-ins, control user settings and permissions, and create groups.,Creating new users, new guest users, and assigning licenses is simple and quick. Auditing user activity is powerful and user-friendly. The only downside is that the log reporting tool only goes back 30 days. Azure AD Connect allows for fast and simple syncing.

Microsoft even says, "There are many ways of deploying MFA with Azure AD." I wish they would simplify the process, as it requires a lot of time and research to use MFA properly. There are too many user and administration roles. Instead of 20+ role options, I wish Azure AD would reduce it to the five most common and allow the creation of custom roles, as needed.,7,With several pricing tiers provided by Microsoft, it's easy to find the right solution for you and to ensure you're not overpaying for features you do not need. The analysis and reporting tools in Azure AD exist, but are a bit limited, which could have a negative impact on larger companies looking to closely monitor their user's activity. Overall, Azure Active Directory has saved us time and resources when creating and managing new employee accounts.,TeamCity, RealZips GeoData Platform for Salesforce.com, Slack

Azure Active Directory is well suited for organizations that use Office 365 and/or a Windows server Active Directory because the syncing and integration is strong between the different Microsoft products. If your organization is not already using Microsoft, then Azure Active Directory may be too complicated for most start-ups or small businesses.
