Reconnects Windows laptops and acts as a centralized location to access pretty much anything web-related
Since we all use Windows laptops, choosing Microsoft Entra ID made sense. I think there's a cohesivity in what Microsoft is trying to do, and Microsoft Entra ID is a very core function of that strategy. It's easier to branch out to other security products, making it easier for us to expand that landscape. Microsoft Entra provides a single pane of glass for managing user access. Because of the solution's single pane of glass, we don't have to run around to multiple places, mainly to create or remove accounts. One of our biggest issues, especially in the past few years, is turnover. Removing accounts is a big issue because we don't know where everything lies. Trying to find those little corners where access has been granted and not knowing it for a year or two after the employee has left is a huge security concern for us. Our HR department doesn't use Microsoft Entra ID yet, but the IT department extensively uses it. It saves all that account creation, and we don't have to run around to different products. The solution has saved our company at least a few hours a week. We can focus on other projects, and I can educate most of my staff who are doing it in other areas. Microsoft Entra ID has not necessarily helped our organization to save money. As a nonprofit, we didn't have any solutions, so it probably started costing us more. However, I think it's paid off just by this security nature of things and having that single pane of glass. Overall, I rate Microsoft Entra ID ten out of ten.

Pricing and Cost Advice

Information not available
"We are currently on the education plan, so the price is slightly better than the development plan."
"The product is relatively affordable, especially compared to Okta, a pricey solution."
"Entra's pricing is somewhat higher compared to AWS."
"If you are dealing with one supplier with an out-of-the-box solution, which provides you end-to-end capabilities, then it is naturally cheaper and less of a headache to manage and operate."
"The pricing is okay and is not a challenge for us."
"Licensing fees are paid monthly."
"It comes free with the Microsoft account. We have a yearly agreement, and all products are covered under it."
"There are add-on components and services, such as identity services, that we have to add to our Azure subscription. Only then can I actually say it's on par with the on-prem server edition. Why should I pay for a component? It should be included in my subscription."
