Secure and Accessible – You Can Have Both with Azure AD
Azure Active Directory is the always-on access gatekeeper
Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), part of Microsoft Entra, is an enterprise identity service that provides single sign-on, multifactor authentication, and conditional access. Its purpose is to guard against cybersecurity attacks while providing convenient access to authorized users. Azure AD helps employees sign up to multiple services and access them anywhere over the cloud with a single set of login credential.
It’s helpful to think of Azure AD as an Identity as a Service (IaaS) application — a cloud-based authentication service that ensures that those logging in are who they say they are. It allows you to maintain high levels of access security while retaining essential user privileges and access across multiple platforms and applications, both on-premises and in the cloud.
Velosio has extensive experience planning and configuring Azure Active Directory and other security applications for developers, IT professionals, and clients. Tap into our expertise to ensure your vital business data remains secure and accessible.

In its gatekeeper role, Azure AD provides organizations of all sizes a simplified way of activating Single Sign-On (SSO) to Software as a Service (SaaS) applications like Microsoft 365, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, and thousands more. Additionally, developers use Azure AD to easily incorporate a world-class identity solution into their applications.
In addition to SSO, Azure AD includes multifactor authentication, self-service password reset, privileged identity management, role-based access control, application usage monitoring, auditing and security monitoring, and alerting.
