With over 6,000 Microsoft service offerings, licensing gets confusing. It’s challenging to determine what features are needed, how many licenses are necessary, and if these components will be included in your price range. It gets even more challenging when evaluating the security of your infrastructure. When migrating to an identity and access management service like Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), you’ll have to factor in the costs and capabilities of each tier Microsoft offers to...

If you’ve ever thought, “why can’t this app read group-based memberships,” you’re in good company – we’ve thought the same thing. The good news is Azure AD’s latest feature is going to make your life (and ours) much easier. As of June, the ability to create nested dynamic groups in Azure AD is in public preview and it’s worth exploring. Whether you’re interested in leveraging the new “memberOf” attribute for apps or licensing assignments, there...

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) prompts warn Microsoft users about a security concern that requires action. For example, Microsoft can’t verify a user’s identity and needs the person to scan their fingerprint or enter a code on their cell phone. Sometimes, MFA prompts are justified; other times, prompts are frequent and unnecessary, making them a nuisance for employees in your organization. If your team receives too many prompts, there are several steps you can take to address...

Microsoft recently announced security improvements to Azure Active Directory (AAD), allowing IT administrators to review and remove inactive user accounts that might pose a safety risk. Admins can now delete accounts from AAD that haven’t logged in to Microsoft’s cloud-based identity and access management service for a pre-determined amount of time.  This guide explains the benefits of finding and removing inactive AAD accounts, clarifies the process, and outlines why you should invest in a full-service consultant to...

A “chatbot” sounds like something from a 1950s sci-fi novel, where super-intelligent machines replace humans and take over the planet. The reality of AI-powered technology isn’t as scary as that, but it’s just as exciting. You can use chatbots to automate various tasks and align customer and employee needs in your organization at scale. Microsoft’s Power Virtual Agents let you create intelligent chatbots that answer questions from customers, clients, and even employees in multiple languages so you...

Azure Active Directory One of the most important pieces of the Azure cloud platform (and most underrated) is the Azure Active Directory (AD) service. Azure AD is a world class authentication and authorization system that underpins the entire Azure, Microsoft 365, and Dynamics 365 ecosystem, even including personal services like outlook.com and XBOX Live. As an identity provider, the primary functions of Azure AD are authentication and authorization. This means Azure AD needs to verify who you...

Businesses are more than a little neurotic about their data, constantly looking for the latest and greatest cloud security products. The total market size of security services in the United States reached $38.44 billion in 2019. (That’s more than the entire GDP of some countries, including Cyprus, Moldova, and Tajikistan!) For many companies, security budgets continue to spiral. With Microsoft Azure, security doesn’t come at a premium. You’ll receive a treasure trove of security features at no extra...

Does everyone agree that cloud computing is too expensive? Even Mark Zuckerberg thinks so. Most organizations rely on the cloud for scalability, security, and stability, but 58 percent say it costs too much. Ironically, most of these companies moved to the cloud to cut the costs of storing data on-premises. Thankfully, Microsoft listened to these concerns. If you currently use (or plan to use) Windows Server or SQL Server in Microsoft Azure, you need to...
