Unlock New Possibilities with Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure is a cloud service platform that provides a wide array of services in domains such as computing, storage, database, networking, developer tools, and other functionality that empower organizations to scale and grow their business.

Azure lets you manage all parts of your computing operations virtually – including servers, storage, databases, networking, analytics, etc. with Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and build, run, and manage applications through its Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). It also allows you to consume cloud-based applications such as Microsoft 365 with its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model.

Softlanding’s Azure consultants help you design & implement a custom solution that meets your business needs. As a Microsoft Solutions Partner, our Azure consultants have many years of experience to help organizations innovate and support their digital transformation efforts.

What is the difference between Azure Active Directory and ADFS?

Both Microsoft Azure and Active Directory Federation Services are important to a well-rounded cloud-based platform, though there are noticeable differences in their functions and capabilities.

The difference between Azure vs ADFS is that The Active Directory is a cloud-based identity and access management solution, allowing legacy applications to run in the cloud, even if they’re incapable of using modern authentication management methods. This program incorporates all-inclusive identity management capabilities, including self-service password management, device registration, and multi-factor authentication.

Active Directory Federation Services — ADFS — uses single sign-on capabilities and acts as a type of security token service. Users are required to follow four comprehensive steps to be granted access which often comes with a higher operating cost than the active directory.

An experienced consultant will help you understand the nuances of both services so that you can determine if either is right for your business.
