We’re all dealing with many usernames and passwords in our everyday life, right? Today I’d like to talk about an authentication feature within Azure Active Directory that can help you with easier, faster access.
Azure Active Directory Seamless Single Sign-on (Azure AD Seamless SSO) automatically signs users in when they are on their corporate devices connected to their corporate network. When this is enabled, users don’t have to type their passwords, or even their username, to sign in to Azure Active Directory.
This feature provides users with easy access to cloud-based applications without needing any additional on premises components. First let’s look at how this is set up:
Now let’s talk about the benefits. First, it’s a much better user experience. Users are automatically signed in both on premises and cloud-based applications using their built-in authentication, so there’s no need for users to repeatedly reenter their passwords.
It’s also easy to deploy and administer. There are no additional components needed on premises; it synchronizes your Azure Active Directory to your AD. Plus it works with any method of cloud authentication using password hash synchronization or pass through authentication.
Additionally, it can be rolled out to only some or all of your users by using group policy. So, this is a great way to allow users to have multiple authentications into multiple websites and applications using only one authentication tool. This will minimize the amount of administration required to set up those users once it’s in place. And it should reduce the number of password resets for your help desk team or whomever oversees that.
