Please note: this course is now outdated. The security aspects of Azure Active Directory are covered in our  Designing for Azure Identity Management course found here.

 

Azure Active Directory, commonly referred to as Azure AD, is Microsoft’s Identity and Access Management service in the Cloud. It manages users, groups, and applications along with their access to other applications and resources running in the cloud. This is exactly what we have with traditional on-premises Active Directory. Azure AD runs as a cloud service and thus can be thought of as Identity and Access Management as a Service.

This course is an introduction to Azure AD security and covers topics related to securing users, groups, devices, and applications as well as cover hybrid identity infrastructure solutions and much more!
