Overall Satisfaction with Azure Active Directory

Azure Active Directory is used within our whole organization. It is used as our identity and access management tool to manage authentication within our corporate network and internal tools. With the help of this tool, employees within the organization would no longer need to memorize many credentials to different systems. Without a centralized authentication system in an environment with many IT tools, employees tend to find it tedious to memorize multiple credentials, and it would lead them to just write down, on a piece of paper or notepad, their multiple credentials which would raise the risks of compromised access. This problem has been effectively addressed by Azure Active Directory.
  • It's easy to implement policies within Active Directory.
  • Clustering users is easily achieved by establishing Organizational Units.
  • It can be used to authenticate users' credentials, even in other cloud platforms.
  • We have not encountered any problems with Azure Active Directory.
  • It mitigated the risks of compromised user accounts.
  • Effective Identity and Access Management.
  • It can be integrated to other IT Tools that need user authentication.
  • Single Sign-On is great.
I have not experienced using other authentication tools, since Active Directory is so effective, be it residing in Azure or locally. Azure active directory has been a great tool, and we have not switched to other tools.
Support is great, and provide insightful solutions whenever there is a problem.
