Like on-premises applications can integrate with Azure AD though it works slightly differently. There is a lot of security built around app integration in addition to ease of use and management when adding custom or 3rd-party apps for a business or organization.

Authentication is available in addition to Single Sign-On. Many Enterprise applications are accessible through the portal including 3rd parties apps available in the gallery. And of course custom app registrations are possible. The words you see in bold here are what you search for in the Azure Portal search box to find these items.

There are essentially three types of applications
Applications pre-integrated by the service provider such has O365 that are built directly on Azure AD relying on it for identity and access management and enabled through directory information and tokens
Applications pre-integrated by Microsoft and custom apps that are independent cloud applications that rely on an internal application directory and can operate independently of Azure AD which are enabled by issuing application specific credentials mapped to an application account in the form of a federation token or username/password provisioned within the app.
On-premises applications which are published through the Azure AD application proxy used to enable access to on-premises applications and rely on a central on-premises directory like Windows AD and enabled by triggering the proxy to deliver the application content to the end user while honoring the on-premises sign-on requirement.

I should also mention that Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) is available for Single Sign-on federation in Azure to SaaS applications.
