Microsoft on What’s new with Azure Active Directory @Ignite 2017
Leading up to the conference, the team worked hard to turn on important new Azure AD capabilities and I’m excited to share a quick recap of everything we announced.
The next wave of conditional access starts now
In June we announced the general availability of the new conditional access admin experience in the Azure portal. This powerful new experience makes it easy to manage policies that bring together services across EMS, including Azure Active Directory, Microsoft Intune. Conditional access also takes advantage of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Graph, which scans billions of signals to determine user risk levels.
Now, we’re bringing to life a new wave of scenarios that expand our conditional access capabilities, including integration across EMS’ Azure Information Protection and Microsoft Cloud App Security services. We’ve grouped the new features into three broad categories:
- Devices and apps
- Session control and information protection
- New conditions and custom controls
Below are highlights from each feature category we’ve previewed at Ignite.
Devices and apps
We recently announced device-based conditional access support for macOS, and now we’re introducing new application-based conditional access capabilities. With this new level of control you can restrict access to services so that only client applications that support Intune app protection policies can use them. And you can combine app-based conditional access policies with device-based policies to protect data for both personal and corporate devices.
