Azure Lighthouse for ISVs

An ISV hosts resources in a subscription in their own tenant, then uses Azure Lighthouse to let customers access these resources. The customer can then log in to their own tenant and access these resources as needed.

ISVs maintain their IP in their own tenant and can use their own support plans to raise tickets related to the solution hosted in their tenant, rather than using the customer's plan.

Since the resources are in the ISV's tenant, all actions can be performed directly by the ISV, such as logging into VMs, installing apps, and performing maintenance tasks. In this scenario, users in the customer’s tenant are essentially granted access as a "managing tenant", even though the customer is not managing the ISV's resources.

Azure Lighthouse for Enterprise

Some organizations may need to use multiple Azure AD tenants. This might be a temporary situation, as when acquisitions have taken place and a long-term tenant consolidation strategy hasn't been defined yet. Other times, organizations may need to maintain multiple tenants on an ongoing basis due to wholly independent subsidiaries, geographical or legal requirements, or other considerations.

In cases where a multi-tenant architecture is required, Azure Lighthouse can help centralize and streamline management operations. By using Azure delegated resource management, users in one managing tenant can perform cross-tenant management functions in a centralized, scalable manner.

Best practice for Azure Managed Services

Azure Lighthouse allows service partners to support customer business needs without compromising security. With full transparency into every service partner action, the customer remains in control over their environment every step of the way.

Keep the customer in control with RBAC

Keep the customer informed with on-demand auditing and reporting

Keep the customer secure with just enough access, just in time
