Microsoft has just announced “Entra“, which is the latest “family of products” and joins their other suites alongside Priva and Viva.
Entra brings together all of Microsoft’s identity and access products and services and includes Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), as well as their Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM) and decentralized identity services.
Identity is one of the biggest cornerstones for cybersecurity.
Microsoft Entra aims to help simply the way organisations approach and accomplish attack surface reduction in the multicloud, hyperconnected world by filling the biggest and most critical gaps. It does this by:
- Protecting access to any application or resource for each and every user
- Secure and verify every identity across hybrid and multicloud environments
- Discovering and governing permissions in multicloud environments
- Simplying the user experience with real-time intelligent access decisions.
Microsoft Entra embodies our vision for what modern secure access should be. Identity should be an entryway into a world of new possibilities, not a blockade restricting access, creating friction, and holding back innovation. We want people to explore, to collaborate, to experiment – not because they are reckless, but because they are fearless.Microsoft.
Entra works with the majority of all cloud platforms, including Azure, AWS, Google Cloud, as well as other Microsoft apps and websites.
