ENTERPRISE MOBILITY PLUS SECURITY

Identity and Access Management (Azure Active Directory Premium)

  1. Azure AD Privileged Self-Service Password Reset (SSPR): is an Azure Active Directory (AD) feature that enables users to reset their passwords without contacting IT staff for help. The users can quickly unblock themselves and continue working no matter where they are or time of day. By allowing the employees to unblock themselves, your organization can reduce the non-productive time and high support costs for most common password-related issues.
  2. Azure Multi-Factor Authentication: If you only use a password to authenticate a user, it leaves an insecure vector for attack. If the password is weak or has been exposed elsewhere, is it really the user signing in with the username and password, or is it an attacker? When you require a second form of authentication, security is increased as a potential attacker can neither access nor duplicate this additional security factor.

Azure Multi-Factor Authentication helps safeguard access to data and applications while maintaining simplicity for users. It provides additional security by requiring a second form of authentication and delivers strong authentication via a range of easy-to-use authentication methods.

     3. Identity Management: It helps organizations to minimize the number of people who have access to secure information or resources, since that reduces the chance of a malicious act or getting that access, or an authorized user inadvertently impacting a sensitive resource. It helps you to manage privileged administrative roles across Azure AD, Azure resources, and other Microsoft Online Services.  

     4. Microsoft Identity Protection is a tool that allows organizations to accomplish three key tasks:

  • Automate the detection and remediation of identity-based risks.
  • Investigate risks using data in the portal.
  • Export risk detection data to third-party utilities for further analysis.

Identity Protection uses the learnings Microsoft has acquired from their position in organizations with Azure AD, the consumer space with Microsoft Accounts, and in gaming with Xbox to protect your users. Microsoft analyses 6.5 trillion signals per day to identify and protect customers from threats.

The signals generated by and fed to Identity Protection, can be further fed into tools like Conditional Access to make access decisions, or fed back to a security information and event management (SIEM) tool for further investigation based on your organization’s enforced policies.
