As you’re most likely aware, Microsoft made the BOLD decision to change the name of Azure AD to Entra ID. Cutting edge. Brave. Wise. Just a few of the words we’ve used the describe the monumental move to revolutionize the identity industry… by changing the name.
Security professionals across the globe are left to wonder, “Alright, so what ACTUAL impact does this have on me and my organization’s security moving forward?” The short answer is, not much, really.
Because this “update” was simply a re-brand of Azure, there’s not much that needs to be done from a development perspective to continue to ensure that your data remains safe. That said, it’s never bad time to review and optimize your organization’s posture on security and move towards zero trust solutions like passwordless security keys such as YubiKeys from our partners at Yubico!
With employees busier than ever, 9 out of 10 cybersecurity breaches are caused by their mistakes and, what’s more, over 54% of employees are not required to go through cybersecurity training on a frequent basis.
The YubiKey protects from human error by eliminating “MFA fatigue”. Remove the guesswork and ensure your employees, and only your employees, are the ones getting in.
If you’re looking to make the jump towards YubiKeys as you continue exploring security options for Entra, we do hope you’ll consider our passwordless onboarding solution designed specifically for EntraID, EZCMS! …actually we designed it when it was still Azure, but you get the idea, right?
