EdX is an online learning platform trusted by over 12 million users offering the Microsoft Azure Identity Certificate in collaboration with MicrosoftX. Continue your learning journey as you go from a traditional Active Directory-based infrastructure to Azure Active Directory (AD) - Microsoft’s multi-tenant cloud based directory and identity management service.

About

This Microsoft Azure Identity Certificate is part of the Microsoft Professional Program in Cloud Administration.

This course focuses on important concepts such as what makes Azure AD different from on-premises AD, differences in managing users and groups and the implementing custom domains in Azure AD. You’ll be introduced to concepts like directories and tenants as well as Multi-Factor authentication which let you add a critical second security layer for verification of user sign-ins and transactions.

Whether workloads or applications are run on-premises or in the cloud, understanding how Azure AD can extend an on-premises environment will afford insight into AD hybrid environments and help you gain the skills to integrate and manage a cloud and on-premises solution.

The Microsoft Azure Identity Certificate is offered by Edx in partnership with MicrosoftX.
