Howdy folks,

I'm happy to be able to let you know that Azure Active Directory Premium is now Generally Available!

As I explained in my blog post last week, this new cloud based identity service for enterprises includes:

1.) Application access management for users and groups

2.) Self-Service password reset

3.) Self-Service group management

4.) Multi-Factor authentication

5.) Customized company branding

6.) Rich security monitoring, analytics, alerts and reporting

And it works great with Windows, Mac, iOS and (soon) Android devices.

But rather than tell you about Azure AD Premium again, I thought it would be more fun to learn about it with our good friend (Steve) Planky:

Azure Active Directory Premium is a service targeted at large enterprises and is available through volume licensing and/or an enterprise agreement. So if you are interested in a demo, a trial or purchasing, contact your Microsoft account rep. It is also available as part of our new Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) which includes Intune and Azure RMS as well. We are offering some incredible deals on EMS for the next 90 days so if you are considering purchasing subscriptions any of these services, now is a great time to act!

As always, we'd love to hear any feedback or suggestions you have. And for those of you with enterprise class identity needs, I hope you'll find Azure AD Premium useful!

  • call it Microsoft Active Directory?
    I don't see any relationship between any other components and AD, Microsoft AD maybe better........

  • Hi Alex,

    In this version has support to password write back??

  • Robson - that capability will go into public preview this month.

  • How to downgrade azure ad premium, because it was for learning purposes in preview mode.
    Than you

  • Alex, can you confirm if password write back is actually available now for public preview?

  • Like this format. Short and simple. Please encourage your other PM colleagues to post in a similar style for their Azure services.
