Microsoft Entra is a product family that encompasses all of Microsoft’s identity and network access solutions. As part of the Microsoft Security portfolio, Microsoft Entra focuses on providing secure access for a connected world. It includes various components such as Microsoft Purview for compliance, Microsoft Priva for privacy, Microsoft Defender for threat protection and cloud security, and Microsoft Sentinel for security information and event management (SIEM).
Microsoft Entra aims to protect access to any app or resource for any user, ensuring the security and verification of every identity across hybrid and multicloud environments. It offers capabilities to discover and govern permissions in multicloud environments, enabling organizations to have complete control over their access management.
One of its key features is the ability to verify and issue credentials through its Microsoft Entra Verified ID. These credentials can be issued for any unique identity attribute within an organization, empowering users to have ownership of their digital credentials and providing greater visibility.
Microsoft Entra offers significant benefits to organizations. According to Microsoft, customers have experienced a 240 percent return on investment over three years, with a payback in less than six months. It has also reduced the likelihood of a security breach by 20 percent, increased the efficiency of identity and access management teams by 50 percent, and improved end-user productivity by 13 hours per year.
