Single Sign On – Microsoft Integration

Posted February 3, 2022

As we have already discussed, the duties of your IT team have gradually been becoming more complex alongside the advancements, coupled with our increased reliance and familiarity with IT, resulting in our IT teams being under increased pressure. We explored SSO and its ability to alleviate the stress that passwords bring to the digital experience. Let’s now go further and explore how SSO integrates with Microsoft and its suite of tools.


Microsoft 365 integration with SSO

Your users can use the same Microsoft credentials when synchronised with their Microsoft 365 account. The problems arise when someone forgets their password; the constant guessing causes problems. Arguably more annoying is having to repeatedly enter the same credentials across every app.


SSO allows users to log in using Active Directory Credentials

SSO will help users to log into their account using their Active Directory credentials, so they will no longer have to re-enter their credentials over and over again once having already signed into their machine. Now, let’s take a closer look at Microsoft 365’s native function within Microsoft Azure.


Microsoft Azure and SSO

The Azure Active Directory allows access to all of your applications with SSO from anywhere across the globe, on any device, from a centralised portal! Your team can then produce better quality work and have a more prosperous relationship with the system, all from any location desired. Microsoft Azure and SSO allow your team to be connected to some of the world’s most popular apps seamlessly – Dropbox is one, and some of the most popular names on the market accompany it.

Microsoft Azure and SSO open up a host of possibilities – let’s take a look at them now.


Access pre-integrated apps

With Microsoft Azure and SSO you can connect your Software-as-a-service (SaaS) apps using their gallery, making for a much more productive work environment.

Scale IT efficiencies

Self-service password reset tools are made possible with Microsoft Azure and SSO. You can make never before possible guarantees that your team will enjoy reduced support times and, in the process, minimise overall cost. This can be beneficial in many ways but mainly because you can then use your limited resources on activities that are of higher value to the organisation.

The Microsoft Azure Active Directory Seamless SSO makes it possible to automatically sign users in when they are on a corporate device that is connected to your corporate network. Enabling this allows you to save time on the laborious task of signing into the Azure ID without needing to type your password or even (in some cases) your username.

Technology has the power to revolutionise your workplace and elevate your business to a position well above any competition. If used correctly the various tools on the market can be organised in such a way that they complement and work together – they have the ability to change the way your team view and use IT, which will help them to better their levels of productivity and security.
