Why Choose Azure Active Directory Domain Services?


Azure Active Directory Domain Services (Azure AD DS) simplifies and speeds up the process of migrating legacy on-premises applications into the cloud. By providing domain join, group policy, LDAP and Kerberos/NTLM authentication services, organizations can quickly and securely enable those applications in an Azure environment without having to manage or even deploy any domain controllers for their needs.


Create a secure and efficient hybrid environment that combines on-premises resources with cloud computing capabilities. Take advantage of modern technologies such as big data and machine learning while maintaining control over your existing infrastructure.


The comprehensive identity access management solutions helps you protect your applications, services, and resources from unauthorized access. Users can only access what they need while providing complete auditability and compliance support through its built-in governance controls.


Manage user identities across multiple forests by allowing administrators to delegate administrative tasks such as password resetting or provisioning user rights without having to maintain multiple identity stores or manage synchronization operations between different forests.


Reduce IT costs by eliminating the need for costly hardware investments or dedicated IT personnel for managing on-premises environments since all the necessary components are already included.
