Another component of Enterprise Mobility + Security Suite is Azure Active Directory. Kuester made this transition to host key apps and websites, and to manage its hybrid environment.
Azure AD includes a full suite of identity management capabilities, including multi-factor authentication, device registration and self-service password management. Additionally, it provides self-service group management, privileged account management, role-based access control, application usage monitoring, rich auditing and security monitoring. These capabilities helped Kuester secure cloud-based applications, streamline IT processes, cut costs and ensure that corporate compliance goals were met.
Azure AD also provides an easy solution that gives management and employees single sign-on (SSO) to various SAAS applications. This significantly boosted employee productivity. They no longer needed multiple passwords. One password grants access to their application panel, where all company-related apps are listed. Also, IT admins need not share passwords with employees for every application, increasing overall security. Additionally, we set up a multi-factor authentication process for employees, sending them a text to double-authenticate their log-ins. They also had the option to download an authenticator app for an alternative level of security.
