How to Implement Azure Identity Management with Azure AD FAQs: Cost, Training, Value

What is identity management and Azure AD?

Identity management is ensuring that users who log on to a network or attempt to access information are who they claim to be and that they have access to the correct information. Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is the bundle of services Microsoft offers on their cloud-based platform for identity management. Azure AD allows businesses to authenticate, authorize, and manage users for accessing resources both on-premises and in the cloud.

What are Azure AD managed identities?

Managed identities in Azure AD are a digital tool for securing services, instances or apps running on Azure – so virtual machines, Azure app services, an Azure function, etc. Azure manages the virtual identity of these apps and services with managed identities, automatically handling their lifecycle, including creation, rotation, and deletion. All of which means that developers don't have to manage credentials manually. Managed identities simplify security and identity management in Azure environments.

Who should take this course on implementing Azure identity management?

Anyone who would benefit from understanding how to secure and manage user access to Azure resources will benefit from this course on implementing Azure identity management. Whether you're a system administrator who needs to check the status of services on the network or a network engineer planning a new service upgrade, or a cybersecurity professional who needs to implement single sign-on solutions or enforce multi-factor authentication, this course can boost your professional skills.

Is this course on Azure identity management and Azure AD associated with any certifications?

This course is first and foremost a skills course – it's focused on providing you with the skills and knowledge necessary to implement and configure Azure Active Directory and managed identities. It's not modeled on any Microsoft certification exams or learning objectives. However, Microsoft does have two official certifications that would be much easier after taking this course: Security, Compliance, and Identity Fundamentals or the Identity and Access Administrator Associate.

Is learning to implement Azure identity management with Azure AD an entry-level skill?

No, implementing Azure identities and active directory management isn't usually an entry-level skill that someone would undertake without some foundational understanding of cloud computing and basic security principles. A course like this can help jumpstart associate-level IT professionals into Azure AD concepts. Since advanced features sometimes require deeper expertise, this is a better course for mid-level to advanced professionals who want to specialize in cloud security or Azure administration.
