David shows how to implement and manage user and group accounts, join client computers, and implement single sign-on and multi-factor authentication.

To wrap up the course, David reviews the more advanced features in Azure AD and Azure AD Connect, including syncing on-premises Active Directory and Azure AD, and troubleshooting an Azure AD deployment.
