Description

Microsoft 365 offers Enterprise Mobility & Security (EMS), Windows 10, and Office 365 to enhance business productivity and security. Because Microsoft 365 offers a variety of services and features, not everything is in the same place. Therefore, we need to navigate within different portals, and familiarity with “what is where” gets really important over time.

In this course, we will have a look at some of the most common tasks to be performed by Microsoft 365 administrators related to Azure AD identities, how to secure your environment by assigning the correct permissions to your users, and how to reduce administrative overhead. We’ll do various tasks in different ways by using the Microsoft 365 Admin Center, the Azure portal, and even use Windows PowerShell for automating bulk actions.

Choosing the right type of identity for your current infrastructure is the first step for any successful Microsoft 365 deployment.

Transcript

What are Azure AD access reviews? Well, they allow you to manage memberships to groups efficiently, manage access to corporate applications, and review access given to your users on a regular basis. 

To benefit from this feature, you need to have an Azure AD Premium P2 license or the Enterprise Mobility and Security, also known as EMS, E5 license. The access reviews feature is a good way to make sure that only the right people have the right access.
