We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It is one of those costs where you can't really quantify a return on investment. In the grand scheme of things, if we didn't have it, we would probably have a lot more breaches. It would be a lot harder to detect issues because we would have people using static usernames and passwords for various sites, making us open to a lot more attacks. The amount of security and benefit that we get out of it is not quantifiable but the return of investment from a qualitative point of view is much higher than not having it.""The single sign-on across multiple platforms is really the true advantage here. That gives you one ID and password for access to all your systems. You don't need to manage a plethora of different user IDs and passwords to all the systems that you're going to access.""Azure Active Directory has been very useful for our company, it is not difficult to use.""I like that you can run it on-premises. I also like that I can use Azure at any time as the main one.""It's not intuitive and we use it mainly for our Office 365 files. The integration between the two is interesting. However, the learning curve is high.""Application integration is easy. MFA and password self-service have reduced most of the supportive work of IT. We use multi-factor authentication. Every access from a user is through multi-factor authentication. There is no legacy authentication. We have blocked legacy authentication methods. For people who use the MDM on mobile, we push our application through Intune. In a hybrid environment, users can work from anywhere. With Intune, we can push policies and secure the data.""The central authentication server is most valuable. GPOs are useful for user and computer policies.""Azure Active Directory features have helped improve our security posture. The remote working has been a massive help during the pandemic."

"Once I made the OneLogin ID, it would essentially make user names and passwords for every application that we had.""It's super useful to have a single pane of glass when it comes to access management."

Cons
"Better deployment management and visibility functionality would be helpful.""I would like it to be easier to integrate third-party applications.""The monitoring dashboard could be a bit better.""Its price should be improved. It is very expensive for Turkish people.""An area where there is room for improvement is the ease of use of the dashboards.""The initial setup was complex.""My understanding is, in the future, they will be able to bring everything into one single platform and they are not there yet.""Though the installation was seamless, it took longer than expected to be completed."

More Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) Cons →

"I would like better reporting from SmartFactor Authentication when a user is not able to sign in due to a new location, new IP, new device, et cetera.""To offboard, you have to manually click on this checklist, each of the checkmarks. It would actually be really nice if, for offboarding someone, you just click "offboard" and it automatically runs a script to do that."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "This product is sold as part of the enterprise package and our licensing fees are paid on a yearly basis."
  • "MFA and P2 licenses for two Azures for fully-enabled scenarios and features cost a lot of money. This is where Okta is trying to get the prices down."
  • "We are a non-profit organization, so we get good prices from Microsoft for their products. It is working well, but it could be cheaper. For the type of organization we are, it would be good if they could give a little bit more and be more generous like Google, which has completely free services. Microsoft has free versions or web services called Office 365 E1, which is free for use, but we want to have it with more qualified clients."
  • "We pay about $35 per user."
  • "I think we're on the E3 — I think it was about 35 dollars per user."
  • "We got a good deal. If you get rid of all the products providing features that Azure Suite can provide, then it makes sense cost-wise."
  • "Microsoft has a free version of Azure AD. So, if you don't do a lot of advanced features, then you can use the free version, which is no cost at all because it is underpinning Office 365. Because Microsoft gives it to you as a SaaS, so there are no infrastructure costs whatsoever that you need to incur. If you use the free version, then it is free. If you use the advanced features (that we use), it is a license fee per user."
  • "Make sure that you get the most out of your Office 365 licenses for Azure AD. If you have additional concerns for users who don't have an Office 365 license, consider Azure AD Premium P1 and P2. Be aware that you have to evaluate your license usage beforehand."

    Top Answer:Pricing-wise, they offer a stepladder approach. You can start with the lowest level features, then start increasing based on new requirements.

    Overview


    Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), part of Microsoft Entra, is an enterprise identity service that provides single sign-on, multifactor authentication, and conditional access to guard against 99.9 percent of cybersecurity attacks.

    Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is a cloud-based identity and access management service. This service helps your employees access external resources, such as Microsoft 365, the Azure portal, and thousands of other SaaS applications. Azure Active Directory also helps them access internal resources like apps on your corporate intranet network, along with any cloud apps developed for your own organization.

    Azure AD is intended for:

    • IT admins: As an IT admin, use Azure AD to control access to your apps and your app resources, based on your business requirements. For example, you can use Azure AD to require multi-factor authentication when accessing important organizational resources. You can also use Azure AD to automate user provisioning between your existing Windows Server AD and your cloud apps, including Microsoft 365. Finally, Azure AD gives you powerful tools to automatically help protect user identities and credentials and to meet your access governance requirements.
    • App developers: As an app developer, you can use Azure AD as a standards-based approach for adding single sign-on (SSO) to your app, allowing it to work with a user's pre-existing credentials. Azure AD also provides APIs that can help you build personalized app experiences using existing organizational data. 
    • Microsoft 365, Office 365, Azure, or Dynamics CRM Online subscribers: As a subscriber, you're already using Azure AD. Each Microsoft 365, Office 365, Azure, and Dynamics CRM Online tenant is automatically an Azure AD tenant. You can immediately start to manage access to your integrated cloud apps.

    OneLogin by One Identity is a cloud-based identity and access management service that enables customers to protect their most prized assets – their people, their identities, and the information they create – whenever, wherever. OneLogin provides everything you need for a modern identity strategy that is smart and secure, and offers a seamless experience for your employees, customers, and partners. With OneLogin, you can connect all your applications—in the cloud or on-premises—in one centralized location. Additionally, OneLogin provides advanced functionality by leveraging machine learning to deliver smart, context aware, and on-demand threat intelligence that learns about your users and your business as it continues to grow.
