Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Azure Active Directory

We use Azure Active Directory internally for our entire organization, including single sign-on to all the third-party SaaS solutions our employees work with, and we have a large portion of our business dedicated to Azure AD consulting for our clients. We use Azure AD as the foundation for our zero-trust security posture.
  • Conditional access
  • Customization
  • Integration, especially with security tools
  • Hybrid scenarios
  • Understanding the breadth of features
  • Onboarding for small businesses
  • Allowed us to deploy cloud-based solutions quickly
  • Reduced friction for everyday use cases
  • Underpins our fully automated remote workforce security and device management
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).

I highly recommend Azure Active Directory for any organization looking to adopt cloud-based technologies and a zero-trust security posture. Many companies "graduate" to it from their legacy on-premises Active Directory installations, and that scenario has been optimized very well, but Azure AD is also a good fit for any organization looking for a robust and secure identity platform.
