Workplace Entra ID

Microsoft’s new Entra ID Shines the Light on Identity Management as a Key Component of the Modern Workplace


Microsoft’s recent move to dial up emphasis on identity management through the launch of Entra ID reinforces heightened awareness on cyber security challenges, and the rapid pace of change occurring across the Modern Workplace landscape. In case you missed it, Microsoft announced that Azure AD would become Entra ID with a bunch of new features. Microsoft Entra will verify all types of identities and secure, manage, and govern their access to any resource.


In summary, the new Microsoft Entra product family will:


  • Protect access to any app or resource for any user.
  • Secure and verify every identity across hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
  • Discover and govern permissions in multi-cloud environments.
  • Simplify the user experience with real-time intelligent access decisions.


What does this mean for you?


As companies increasingly rely on online digital assets and collaborative work environments, the need for robust identity management to protect sensitive data has become critical.


Your suite of Microsoft tools is rapidly becoming even more sophisticated, adding both complexity and opportunity for those who are adopting Modern Workplace principles. At Velocity, we advocate Modern Workplace thinking and are constantly developing new business solutions and ways of working to help customers keep pace with change and support their growth at every stage.
