Get an overview of Microsoft's Azure Active Directory platform, the cloud-based version of the popular Windows directory service. Learn how to manage user and group accounts, join client computers, and implement single sign-on and multifactor authentication.
- Azure Active Directory provides access to everything in the Microsoft Cloud. I'm David Elfassy and welcome to Learn Microsoft Azure: Active Directory. In my day job I help organizations define their cloud-based solutions. This course dives deep into all aspects of Azure Active Directory. We will explore the proper methods for implementing this essential identity and management solution. Deploy single sign on for cloud-based application, like Dropbox and Google Apps, enforce multi-factor authentication for AD users, and provide significant guidance for deploying a synchronization solution between AD On-Premise and Azure AD.
I'm looking forward to sharing this information with you, let's get started.
Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) provides most of the rich functionalities of Active Directory, with the conveniences of cloud-based computing. Azure AD also offers developers a great way to integrate identity management into applications. In this Azure training course, David Elfassy introduces the terminology and feature set in Azure AD. He shows how to implement and manage user and group accounts, join client computers, and implement single sign-on and multifactor authentication. (Industry standard protocols such as SAML 2.0, WS-Federation, and OpenID Connect makes sign-on possible on a variety of platforms.) In the final chapters of the course, David reviews the more advanced reporting and features in Azure AD and Azure AD Connect, including syncing on-premise Active Directory and Azure AD.
