Microsoft Releases #AzureAD Conditional Access policies for iOS, Android and Windows
Great news to share today! The Azure AD device-based Conditional Access policies for iOS, Android and Windows are generally available.
Since we announced the public preview of this feature back in August, we’ve seen a ton of customer interest and usage. So we’re really pleased to be able to release these features for production usage.
These policies in conjunction with MFA, network location and risk scores from Azure AD Identity Protection and the MDM capabilities of Microsoft Intune provide the industries most comprehensive set of security and compliance controls. (If you want to learn more about Azure AD conditional access go here.)
Quite a few customers already have these policies in their production environments and are already requiring employees to use properly configured devices to access Office 365 and other applications. This includes controlling access from iOS, Android and Windows (10, 8.1 & 7).
And just a quick reminder: Conditional Access works with EVERY application that authenticates using Azure AD! That means Office 365, Azure and Microsoft CRM as well as all the apps in our app gallery, including thousands of apps like ServiceNow, Salesforce.com & Concur, plus on-premises apps published through the Azure AD Application Proxy.
Please note: Conditional Access is a feature of Azure AD Premium.
To set these policies is easy. On the Azure Management Portal, select the application you want to protect. Under the ‘configure’ tab you will find the control to enable device base access rules.
