To put it simply, Microsoft Entra is a product suite created specifically to help customers protect their digital identities by helping security teams control access to any of their apps and manage rights in multi-cloud programs. All well-known cloud services are included, including Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, and Amazon Web Services.

Vasu Jakkal, CVP of Microsoft for Security, Compliance, Identity, and Privacy, explains that as our digital assets increase, the attack vector is becoming more and more accessible to exploit.

This has almost doubled. There were 579 attacks per second just a few months back, so the escalation of attacks continues to increase and that puts people at extreme risk when it comes to their own personal security.” Identity “is the battle of security attacks right now and there are 921 attacks per second,” he added.

This July 2022, Microsoft Entra Permissions Management will go global. Additionally, it will be integrated into the Microsoft Defender for Cloud dashboard, enhancing CIEM protection for Defender for Cloud.

Your identities will all be verified by the new Microsoft Entra, which will also control their access to any resources.

This will:

  • Ensure that no user has access to any of your apps or resources.
  • Verify each identity and control access across many cloud apps.
  • By incorporating real-time intelligent access decisions, you may make your experience simpler.

Microsoft has also disclosed the availability of the public previews for

  • Workload identity management: Workload identities are the identities that we assign to various apps and services. Workload identity management will protect all of our identities by resetting the access policies and the permissions that have been granted.
  • Lifecycle Workflows: Using automated identity governance to regulate access to all applications and data, ensuring that only authorized users have access.

Microsoft is working to create an all-encompassing identity protection system with the security of its users as its first concern.
