Tip of the Day: WAAD Premium


Today’s (Cloud) Tip…WAAD Premium

We recently started Previewing Windows Azure Active Directory Premium. Starting out, we are providing the following features:

  • Self-service password reset for users: Whenever employees forget their password, Windows Azure AD gives them a self-service way to reset their password rather than having to call your helpdesk. (Note: Today we are previewing this for cloud only passwords. In an upcoming preview we'll add the option to use this to reset on-premises passwords as well.)

  • Group-based provisioning and access management to SaaS apps: You can leverage existing groups that have been synced in from your on-premises Active Directory to assign users access in bulk to SaaS apps and to automate the ongoing assignment of users to apps.

  • Customizable access panel: Organizations can now customize the app access panel for their employees with company logos and color schemes.

  • Machine learning based security monitoring and reports: Azure AD premium using advance machine learning systems to monitor and protect access to your cloud applications and provides detailed security reports showing anomalies and inconsistent access patterns. You can view logins by users who logged in from unknown sources, logins that occurred after multiple failures and logins from multiple geographies in short timespans. Security reports will help you gain new insights to improve access security and respond to potential threats.

More Premium features will be added in the future.
