Azure AD is a cloud-based identity management service that provides authentication, authorization, and governance for organizations. Azure AD securely connects your organization’s cloud-based applications and resources to your on-premises Active Directory domains and servers.
Azure AD also enables you to manage user access and security policies for your users.
Azure AD is different from LDAP in a few important ways. First, Azure AD is a cloud-based service that can be accessed from anywhere on the Internet. Second, Azure AD provides single sign-on for your cloud-based applications and resources.
Third, Azure AD is tightly integrated with Office 365 and other cloud-based applications. Finally, Azure AD provides automatic compliance with your organization’s security and governance policies.
Overall, Azure AD provides a powerful and flexible identity management solution that can help your organization improve user access and security across cloud-based applications.
