Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"We have about 80 users in the Azure Active Directory right now, however, we know that if it was necessary to scale it for hundreds or thousands of users, it wouldn't be a problem.""Overall the solution functions very well, such as the ability to access it from the cloud.""It offers features that improve our security posture such as multifactor authentication, which is the second layer of protection that is used when we log into the cloud.""Microsoft Azure AD is easy to install and is a stable solution.""Azure Active Directory has useful policy assigning and management.""Many of its features are valuable, including: facilitating application authentication, privileged access management, processes for attestation, and access reviews.""The technical support is pretty good.""I like that you can run it on-premises. I also like that I can use Azure at any time as the main one."

"Identity Cloud has simplified our migrations. Since we're primarily working with native Oracle solutions, we can adopt many features of Oracle Identity Cloud Management."

Cons
"The solution was difficult to scale because the group's configuration was complex. I would rate the scalability level of Azure Active Directory a five out of ten.""The synchronization with the local Active Directory and synchronization with all of the users on the local and cloud could be better.""The monitoring dashboard could be a bit better.""Technical support could be better.""My understanding is, in the future, they will be able to bring everything into one single platform and they are not there yet.""I would like to see improvements made when it comes to viewing audit logs, sign-in logs, and resource tags.""Though the installation was seamless, it took longer than expected to be completed.""The documentation, and the way that people are notified of updates, are things that can be improved. I'm a big fan of Microsoft products but the way they document is not that great."

"Oracle needs to improve the GUI and many other aspects of the cloud console. It isn't as slick as Azure, Google, or IWS cloud. The documentation could be better, too."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Licensing fees are paid on a monthly basis and the cost depends on the number of users."
  • "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."

    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.

    Oracle Identity Cloud Service enables organizations to automate security, compliance, and IDM activities regardless of where they are on their journey to the cloud.
