Understanding Security and Privileged Access in Azure Active Directory

Webinar Registration

If you have Office 365, Azure or any other Microsoft cloud service you have Azure Active Directory.

And like on-prem AD, Azure AD is the heart and soul of security for:

  • Office 365
  • Azure – including now virtual machines
  • Other cloud services integrated with Azure AD

But in the most common hybrid scenarios Azure AD can even impact security back home on your on-prem Active Directory. After all, AD Connect is a 2-way street in most deployments.

You are probably using AD Connect and ADFS and when federation and synchronization are working it's easy to forget Azure AD even exists. But that's dangerous. And it's dangerous to treat Azure AD as a separate entity from your on-prem AD or to simply view Azure AD as a projection of on-prem AD in the cloud.

In this webinar we will dive into the security features of Azure AD and identify the risks that need to be recognized and mitigated.

Many of the lessons learned from on-prem AD apply to Azure AD. For instance, we'll talk about why the workstations of Azure AD privileged users need to be held to the same standards as admins accessing on-prem AD.

Of course, some of the things we have to worry about with on-prem AD – like physical security domain controllers – don't apply to Azure AD. But there are other risks that are new to Azure AD. For instance, by default administrator access to Azure AD is just sitting out there exposed to the entire Internet with a simple password. Do you even know who first created your Azure AD tenant? For that matter how many different Azure AD directories do you have?

Azure AD is also nowhere close to being as mature as on-prem AD. There's a lot of things you can't do – such as fine grained delegation of admin authority. And there's no organizational units in Azure AD.

Here's a few of the technical areas we'll address:

  • Privileged access controls
  • Administrative roles and Delegation
  • Synchronization security
  • How to determine who really has access to Azure AD
  • How to detect unauthorized changes
  • How vulnerable is Azure AD to external attacks
