Windows Server Management Company
Yesterday we shared that Windows Azure Active Directory (AD) has processed 200 BILLION authentications . Today I’m excited to share some great identity-related improvements we’ve made to Windows Azure that leverage the capabilities of Windows Azure AD. The number one identity management feature that Windows Azure customers request is the ability for organizations to use their on-premise corporate identities in Windows Server Active Directory to deliver single sign-on (SSO) access to the Windows Azure Management Portal and centralized user access management.
Starting today, the Windows Azure Management portal is now integrated with Windows Azure AD and supports federation with a customers on-premise Windows Server AD. In addition this integration means that the millions of Office 365 customers can use the same tenants and identities they use for Office 365 to manage sign-on and access to Windows Azure.
