Get started with Azure Active Directory, the cloud-based version of the popular Microsoft directory service. Explore its feature set, and discover how to manage user and group accounts, join client computers, implement multi-factor authentication, and more.
- Azure Active Directory is what 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 to find 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 DrawBox 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.
David shows how to implement and manage user and group accounts, join client computers, and implement single sign-on and multi-factor authentication. (Industry standard protocols such as SAML 2.0, WS-Federation, and OpenID Connect make sign-on possible on a variety of platforms.) 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.
