Azure Active Directory Services

Managed domain services help you cut money and work more effectively.

Why does your business require Azure Active Directory Services? You can access managed domain services like Windows Domain Join, group policy, LDAP, and Kerberos authentication using Azure Active Directory Domain Services (Azure AD DS), a component of Microsoft Entra, without deploying, maintaining, or patching domain controllers.

The following are some of Azure AD Domain Services’ fundamental duties:

  • Store objects securely
  • Utilizing Organizational Units, Domains, and Forests for object organization
  • Provider of common authentication and authorization
  • Kerberos, NTLM, and LDAP authentication
  • Company Policy
  • Adaptable Schema

Get access to a quick and simple sign-in process to maintain user productivity, cut down on time spent managing passwords, and eliminate friction. Work with Versatrust to take advantage of your Azure Active Directory.

Advantages of Azure Active Directory Services

You can use Azure Active Directory Domain Services to access cloud-based applications that are available in an organization’s on-premise IT infrastructure for data transactions and operations.

You may execute your applications on Azure virtual machines with the help of this Azure solution from Microsoft. You utilize the most recent authentication techniques when working on a virtual network on Microsoft’s cloud architecture without establishing domain controllers.

AAD tenants can request machine access from admins, and users can utilize their current corporate login credentials to access the applications. Managed domain services like domain joining for Azure machines, group policy implementation, read-only LDAP access, Kerberos/NTLM authentication, etc. are provided by Azure AD Domain Services. These services are simple to implement and are completely compatible with Windows Server Active Directory. With Azure Active Directory Services you can enjoy the following benefits:

  • Access to domain services that are managed, including Windows Domain Join, group policies, LDAP, and Kerberos authentication
  • Ability to connect Azure virtual machines without domain controllers to a managed domain
  • Simple sign-in with Azure AD credentials for apps connected to your managed domain
  • Legacy programs can be lifted and moved from your on-premises environment to a managed domain.

How Does Azure Active Directory Domain Services Work

Identity services are offered in the cloud via Azure Active Directory Domain Services, which connect with your current apps and migrated workloads. To give you a coordinated hybrid environment, two Windows Server domain controllers administer the Azure virtual machines. Using Azure AD Connect, the domain services carry out one-way synchronization from the on-premise directory to the Azure Ad tenant. Azure AD Directory Services and Azure Domain Services do not sync the resources established there.

By putting a Virtual Network and a dedicated subnet inside of it, you can also deploy Azure Active Directory Domain Services for enterprises that solely use the cloud. Using Azure AD Domain Services features like domain join, LDAP read, LDAP bind, Group Policy, and NTLM and Kerberos authentication, Microsoft builds two Domain Controllers on the subnet. Since identity synchronization is not required, Azure AD Connect configuration is not necessary.
