Enforce a secure workplace identity

Synchronise groups of GitHub users with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) to enforce a secure workplace identity. Azure AD provisioning allows GitHub customers to leverage their existing Azure AD solution for group membership so that their administrators and developers can focus on their application development. As a result, the Azure AD synchronisation capability enables customers to reduce their administrative time, improve auditability and increase user security.

Manage Azure Policy as code

To increase developer velocity, there is a need to shift from manually managing each policy in the Azure portal to something more manageable, collaborative and repeatable at enterprise scale. You can now easily export Azure policies to a GitHub repository in just a few clicks. You can then collaborate, track changes using version control and deploy the policies using custom GitHub workflows.
