Microsoft Entra Identity Governance Preview
Strengthen security and reduce costs with Microsoft Entra
Hear Joy Chik, Microsoft Corporate Vice President for Identity, share the latest identity and access announcements in governance, workload identities, strong authentication, and new tools for upgrading from Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) to Azure AD.
Enhance productivity and security
Identity governance increases employee productivity and helps meet compliance and regulatory requirements.
Automate employee, supplier, and business partner access to apps and services—in the cloud and on-premises—at enterprise scale. Help ensure that people have access when they require it—without the burden of manual approvals.
Reduce risk arising from access abuse and make smart access decisions based on machine learning. Set up requirements for recurring reviews to ensure that there is a continuing need for users, group memberships, and access.
Simply powerful. Powerfully simple.
Cloud-based, for straightforward deployment and operation. Flexible, to support both cloud and on-premises apps and resources. Integrated, for unparalleled support of Microsoft resources. Open, to support hundreds of non-Microsoft apps. Robust, to meet the needs of all types of organizations.
Automate routine tasks
Delegate day-to-day resource access requests to relevant business groups, and automate the approval process for customary resource access to help you focus on AI-provided insights and exceptions.
Safeguard access for employees and partners
Automate the entire employee identity lifecycle
Design workflows to automatically create an identity via a signal from an HR system. Automatically update accesses when employees change roles or move. Gracefully remove access when the employee leaves the organization.
Assign employee access to resources
Automatically assign app and resource access based on employee group memberships. Ensure that conflicting access (with app administrators and app users, for example) can’t occur with Separation of Duties. Delegate access decisions to business groups.
Allow guest and partner access to resources
Enable business groups to securely allow access to partners, suppliers, and guests via the same robust entitlement management and access review capabilities that employees use—with the same exception handling and rich reporting.
Control identities and access
Automatically create user identities and roles in the apps users need to access, and maintain and remove user identities as status or roles change.
