Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is Microsoft’s enterprise cloud-based identity and access management (IAM) solution. Azure AD is the backbone of the Office 365 system, and it can sync with on-premise Active Directory and provide authentication to other cloud-based systems via OAuth.


This integration with RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle, allows organisation to automatically collect access control list (ACL) data (who has access to what) and also allows organisations to directly provision/de-provision access. You can also use Azure AD for authentication purposes.


Please see this guide for info on Azure deployment: RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle 7.2.1 Azure Installation Guide
