Best Practices for using Microsoft Azure Active Directory (AD)

Presented by

Aaron Resnikoff, Senior Security Engineer, Adobe and Trevor Ashby, Security Engineer, Adobe

About this talk

Large enterprises such as Adobe have historically relied upon solutions managed wholly in-house for identity and access management. However, as we began our move towards a more cloud-centric zero-trust based networking environment, we recognized that we needed to ensure our core enterprise identity and access management system was more cloud-centric as well. This became apparent as the definition of “work” changed for our users as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our cloud-based directory provider of choice for this effort is Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). Over the past several years as we have transitioned to a cloud-based enterprise identity model we have learned a lot about how best to utilize this technology. Microsoft Azure AD is also still relatively new technology and is a constantly evolving system. This has presented some unique challenges as we work to use it in an organization as large and complex as Adobe. In this webcast Aaron Resnikoff, Sr. Security Engineer, and Trevor Ashby, Security Engineer, from our enterprise security team will talk about the evolution of how we use Microsoft Azure AD and give you the scoop on many of the lessons we have learned on our journey as we have made this the core of our enterprise identity infrastructure. You will leave this webcast with knowledge you can use to help you with your own zero-trust networking and cloud-based identity management journey.
