What is conditional access?
Conditional access is an intelligent policy engine that helps organizations better control how users access corporate resources.
Enforce access controls with adaptive policies
Bring together real-time signals such as user context, device, location, and session risk information to determine when to allow, block, or limit access, or require additional verification steps.
Help protect data inside applications
Monitor and control sessions, application access, and sensitive data across your organization in real time based on user behavior in apps, both on premises and in the cloud.
Restrict access for vulnerable and compromised devices
Use conditional access policies to check the device health and security posture of registered devices and ensure only healthy and trusted devices can access your corporate resources.

How conditional access works
Conditional access takes in over 40 TB of identity-related security signals and analyzes them using machine learning to determine the appropriate policy to apply to a resource.
