Does Your Cloud Accounts Payable Application Support Azure Active Directory?


Email | Print

With the increasing risk of cyber sabotage in recent years, it is now even more important to  evaluate and use cloud solutions that fully support secure user identity and access management solutions.

Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is Microsoft’s multi-tenant, cloud-based directory and identity management service. Azure AD combines core directory services, advanced identity governance, and application access management.

For IT Admins, Azure AD provides an affordable, easy-to-use solution to give employees and business partners single sign-on (SSO) access to thousands of cloud SaaS Applications like Office 365, Salesforce.com, DropBox, and the Ariett Purchase to Payment platform.

Additionally, with just four clicks, Azure AD can be integrated with an existing Windows Server Active Directory, giving organizations the ability to leverage their existing on-premises identity investments to manage access to cloud-based SaaS applications.

The Ariett Purchase to Payment platform fully supports Azure AD as the most secure option for managing users’ access to Ariett’s purchasing, AP invoice automation, payment processing, contract tracking and expense reporting solutions.  Ariett is a trusted cloud provider for customers because of the robust and secure solutions, such as Azure AD, that we support.

If you are an Office 365, Azure or Dynamics CRM Online customer, you might not realize that you are already using Azure AD. Every Office 365, Azure and Dynamics CRM tenant is actually already an Azure AD tenant. Whenever you want, you can start using that tenant to manage the Ariett Purchase to Payment Platform.

Here are some important reasons to adopt cloud solutions that support Azure AD:

  • Employees Gain Productivity: Employees love having just one password and username to log into any Azure application.  They quickly log in once to their business applications and move on to their most important projects.
  • Simplified Access Management: Your IT administrators have a centralized location to set up individual and rule driven access rights for all Azure SaaS apps. They find it easy to deploy Azure AD and save time because they no longer need to update usernames and passwords across multiple environments and applications.
  • Reporting and Tracking: At any time, IT admin can receive notifications and generate out of the box reports on who is accessing which application and when they are accessing the application.

Azure AD also includes a full suite of identity management capabilities including multi-factor authentication, self-service password management, role-based access control, application usage monitoring, rich auditing and security monitoring and alerting. These capabilities can help secure cloud-based applications, streamline IT processes, cut costs and ensure that corporate compliance goals are met.
