Pros
Azure is a very good cloud platform, their UI is really amazing and they have great customer support, always on hand to provide support.
The AAD is a great and excellent feature that allows you to manage your organization users, computer etc in cloud. The hybrid feature also allows you easily manage your existing on prem servers.
Ease of deployment and support from Microsoft is key to a successful deployment in AAD.
Cons
If we have an outage and can't conenct to Azure AD as has happened in the past, we lose access to other systems such as Office, Microsoft Teams etc. This can obviously lead to productivity issues.
With the dizzying array of permissions available, it might be difficult to determine which one(s) to apply for a specific use case.
Azure AD keeps improving each day and Microsoft has yet to fail in this area. I have not seen yet a con in this ssoftware.

The All-In-One Corporate Identity Manager - Azure AD

Reviewed a year ago

In conclusion, overall, I highly recommend Azure Active Directory for any company looking to streamline their identity and access management processes and enhance the security of their IT systems. While there may be some challenges associated with setting up and configuring the software, the benefits are well worth the investment.

Pros

As an administrator of Azure Active Directory in my company, I have found it to be a valuable asset to our overall IT infrastructure. The software offers a range of features that have made our identity and access management processes more efficient and secure. One of the key benefits of using Azure Active Directory is its integration with other Microsoft services, such as Office 365 and Microsoft Teams....

Cons

However, there are also a few cons to consider. One issue I have faced is the learning curve associated with setting up and configuring the software, especially for those who are not familiar with Microsoft's IT infrastructure. Additionally, some users have reported challenges with integrating Azure Active Directory with non-Microsoft systems.

Inexpensive, Many Integrations

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Cost was affordable and it provided an easy way to migrate from on prem domain controller to Azure AD. It also integrated with a number of the other SAAS applications we used making setting up integrated authentication easy.

Cons

When you move a computer from Joined to a local AD over to Azure AD you lose some of the management options (GPO).

Excellent access management and identity management service

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

It's simple to use and straightforward, and because it's housed in the cloud, there's rarely any downtime. Groups and users can be created in seconds, and some more complex features, such as conditional access restrictions, make controlling access and implementing multi-factor authentication quite simple. Azure AD aided us in integrating several technologies, managing access, and securing our identities. We suffered from service availability when utilizing Active Directory.

Cons

Troubleshooting technical difficulties by the Microsoft team may take some time, and obtaining the appropriate technical help may be challenging. With the dizzying array of permissions available, it might be difficult to determine which one(s) to apply for a specific use case.

The best solution for a Microsoft-heavy company.

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

I like the main dashboard gives you alerts on upcoming major changes and remediation to avoid service interruptions. There is the seamless integration with on premise Active Directory that makes it easy to sync and migrate. The monitoring blade is great to show access with details on time, user, application, remote IP Address, location and MFA. I also like the separation and ease to create service principals or applications and lock them down to specific roles. I also like the feature of setting accounts as Guest so that you can furter restrict non company users. Overall one of the best ID management solutions for Microsoft shops. Great API and powershell documentation

Cons

No compains but I wish more security features that are hidden are brought and promoted in the GUI.
