Microsoft announced any customer using a subscription of a commercial online service can connect all their cloud applications to Azure AD for single sign-on (SSO), and protect this access with multi-factor authentication (MFA) as a security default at no extra cost.
SSO reduces the number of sign-in prompts for employees and enables one-click access to popular apps, and it should make working remotely even easier.
Microsoft also introduced several Azure AD enhancements to simplify identity and access management and improve the experiences for working remotely, including the following:
- Streamline identity management
- Improve application configuration and security
- Seamless and secure collaboration
- Safeguard identities with industry-leading security
- App gallery integration
