Course Description

Azure Active Directory (AD) is the Azure cloud implementation of Microsoft's identity and access management solution. Azure AD provides secure access and single sign-on services to internal and web-based applications. AD can be extended from an on-premises solution to the Azure cloud and federated with other AD implementations. In this course, you'll learn about all aspects of Azure AD, from hybrid on-premises and on cloud solutions, to AD FS federation between AD implementations. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for Microsoft exam 70-533: Implementing Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions. This exam completes the requirement for Microsoft Specialist certification in Microsoft Azure.
