Identity and Access Management

Azure Active Directory
Part of Microsoft Entra

Azure Active Directory, a vital component of Microsoft Entra cloud identity and access management solution, has revolutionized business operations in today's digital age. It protects various assets such as users, apps, workloads, and devices. The platform boasts strong authentication and risk-based adaptive access policies along with configurable conditional access policies based on context and risk assessment mechanisms. In addition to this brilliant feature set comes User and Entity Behaviour Analytics (UEBA) under Identity Protection which offers an added layer of protection against identity compromise.

Microsoft Entra
Identity Governance

Microsoft Entra Identity Governance Preview is a cloud-delivered complete identity governance solution that automates access control of employees. It guarantees that eligible individuals get access to the right apps and services at the right time. It eliminates manual approvals, which often result in delayed access. Microsoft Entra Identity Governance includes Certificate-Based Authentication (CBA), providing users with phish-resistant multifactor authentication while simultaneously protecting personal data from cyber assaults. Microsoft Entra Identity Governance offers self-assessment capabilities so that users can check if they have appropriate permissions assigned.

Entra External ID

Microsoft Entra External ID is a powerful solution for managing identities and access that helps you build safe digital relationships with customers and partners. It helps protect sensitive data and keep users' trust by using strong authentication and granular access rules. With Entra External ID, organizations can easily set access levels for external users, control identity lifecycles, and control who has access to what. Also, Entra External ID gives app development teams the tools they need to speed up the process of making safe apps, so they can easily add identity security to any customer experience

Microsoft Entra
Permissions Management

Microsoft Entra Permissions Management manages permissions for users and workloads identities stored in the cloud infrastructure. Integrating the notion of least privilege throughout the digital estate enables organizations to find, monitor, and remediate permissions and achieve Zero Trust security. The CIEM tool provides granular visibility and control over permissions for any identity and resource, ensuring that the principle of least privilege is enforced at the cloud scale. It assesses your permission risk by monitoring permissions granted versus used continually and detects anomalous permission usage through detailed forensic reports.

Entra Verified ID

Microsoft Entra Verified ID is a powerful solution streamlining the onboarding process for employees, partners, and customers. By digitally validating information through ID verification, it ensures trustworthy self-service enrolment and faster onboarding. With Microsoft Entra Verified ID, individuals gain their own digital identity that they have full control over, granting them secure and easy access to all the resources. Organizations can issue workplace credentials for new hires within minutes, and empowers users to manage their account and password recovery through self-service, reducing the need for help desk calls and approval fatigue.

Microsoft Entra
Workload Identities

Workload identities are entities assigned to software that enables secure access to digital resources. Non-human identities are more susceptible to being attacked than their human counterparts. Microsoft Entra Workload Identities offer a range of services, including adaptive policies for secure access, real-time management of conditional access and risk policies, detection of compromised identities using AI-based automation capabilities, and simplification of lifecycle management through streamlining clean-up tasks, among others. Users can safeguard their resources with less effort and mitigate threats effectively if they occur.

Identity and Access Management

Microsoft Entra Internet Access

Microsoft Entra Internet Access offers a comprehensive solution to reinforce an organization's security and embrace the principles of Zero Trust. With a modernized network security approach, Microsoft Entra Internet Access safeguards against malicious internet traffic and threats from the open web using a robust cloud-delivered network security toolset, including web content filtering and cloud firewall capabilities. In addition to enhancing security, it provides unparalleled visibility and protection for Microsoft 365 access, ensuring swift and seamless app accessibility for users, regardless of their location, while maintaining the highest level of productivity.

Microsoft Entra Private Access

Microsoft Entra Private Access is a cutting-edge solution that modernizes and streamlines private app access using identity-centric Zero Trust principles. Remote users may easily and quickly connect to private apps from any device and network, removing the operational complexity and costs of legacy VPNs. Defining app segments and microsegments at the user, process, or device level reduces the attack surface for organizations. Microsoft Entra Private Access cautiously manages access to private apps across hybrid and multi-cloud environments, private networks, and data centers, protecting important assets and sensitive data.
