Azure Active Directory security and governance

Safeguard user credentials and manage your digital identities

Protect users and govern access

Securing remote work requires strong authentication and controlling access to resources based on real-time risk assessments. Secure your users, govern access with intelligent policies, continuously monitor threats and take appropriate action. Use real-time machine learning and heuristic signals to automatically protect against compromised identity before granting access to your corporate resources.

Strong multi-factor authentication safeguards user credentials

Context-based adaptive policies grant, limit or block access

Real-time machine learning guards against use of leaked or stolen credentials and blocks suspicious login attempts

Identity governance controls access to apps and data for all users, including privileged users, across hybrid environments

Secure access to your resources

Verify users’ identities before granting access to your resources. Implement secure sign-on and multi-factor authentication to mitigate risk and help protect your users from 99.9 per cent of cybersecurity attacks.

Get started with Zero Trust

Enforce the core principle of Zero Trust – never trust, always verify. Set Conditional Access policies based on the user, location, device and application to determine whether access should be allowed, limited or blocked.

Apply real-time machine learning

Reduce noise and focus on finding real threats quickly. Implement real-time machine learning and knowledge based on analysing trillions of signals daily. Get visibility into high-risk events and help make your environment more secure with unified identity protection.

Manage privileged users efficiently and securely

Discover, restrict and monitor access rights for privileged identities. Secure your administrator accounts by limiting access to critical operations using just-in-time, time-bound and role-based access control.

Govern the identity lifecycle

Ensure that the right users have the right access to the right resources by using intelligent cloud identity governance. Monitor and audit access to all resources while managing employee productivity.
