Azure Active Directory 
Seamless, secure identity and access management

Identity, security, and productivity all at once 

Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) helps you manage user identities and create intelligence-driven access policies to secure your resources. As an integral component of Office 365, Azure and Enterprise Mobility + Security, Azure AD centralizes identity and access management to enable deep security, productivity, and management across devices, data, apps, and infrastructure. Azure AD is built to work for apps in the cloud, on mobile, or on-premises, and you can layer security features such as conditional access to help protect users and your business. 

Get seamless access to any application from virtually any location or device 

By using one identity, users can launch all of their cloud applications from a personalized, wed-based access panel or mobile app and have the same experience whether they're working on Windows, Mac, Android, or iOS devices. With Azure AD Application Proxy, you can go beyond cloud applications and publish on-premises web-applications to provide highly secure remote access and single sign-on. 

Collaborate securely with partners and customers 

Engage with users outside your organization while maintaining control over your sensitive apps and data. It's easier than ever for customers and partners to connect with your business using a simple sign-up experience that works with multiple identity providers, including Microsoft, LinkedIn, Google, and Facebook.
