Overview of this book

Microsoft Azure and its Identity and Access Management is at the heart of Microsoft’s Software as a Service, including Office 365, Dynamics CRM, and Enterprise Mobility Management. It is an essential tool to master in order to effectively work with the Microsoft Cloud. Through practical, project based learning this book will impart that mastery. Beginning with the basics of features and licenses, this book quickly moves on to the user and group lifecycle required to design roles and administrative units for role-based access control (RBAC). Learn to design Azure AD to be an identity provider and provide flexible and secure access to SaaS applications. Get to grips with how to configure and manage users, groups, roles, and administrative units to provide a user- and group-based application and self-service access including the audit functionality. Next find out how to take advantage of managing common identities with the Microsoft Identity Manager 2016 and build cloud identities with the Azure AD Connect utility. Construct blueprints with different authentication scenarios including multi-factor authentication. Discover how to configure and manage the identity synchronization and federation environment along with multi -factor authentication, conditional access, and information protection scenarios to apply the required security functionality. Finally, get recommendations for planning and implementing a future-oriented and sustainable identity and access management strategy.

Choosing the Right Technology, Methods, and Future Trends


After working through this final chapter you should now be able to create modern IAM architectures with future improvements and have knowledge of the upcoming features of MIM and Windows Server 2016. In this chapter, we focused on the different client scenarios, because in every project we answer the same questions about the different capabilities - perhaps you are in the same situation. During the different chapters, we always described the different Windows Server 2016 capabilities for designing and implementing the new features of this server product. With this knowledge you should be well prepared and able to take the right decisions. We want to thank you for choosing this book and hope that you take some relevant and important knowledge out of these chapters. We wish you happiness and success when working with your hybrid IAM solutions with Microsoft Azure. We will follow up on these topics on and
