In this session, we will explore the process of modernizing authentication methods in Azure AD, focusing on strategies and best practices for migrating away from the classic MFA and SSPR portals and going passwordless.

We will discuss the benefits of the new centralized management approach, such as improved security and simplified management, and how it can help organizations meet the changing needs of today's workforce.

Attendees will learn about key considerations for planning and executing a migration to the new Azure AD portal blade, including how to assess and prepare for the impact on users and IT staff.

We will also cover best practices for troubleshooting common issues and maintaining compliance during the transition.

This session will provide a detailed-level overview of the new converged management approach and will be a demonstration and talk about authentication strategies.

You will learn:

  • About the different authentication methods in Azure AD
  • How to move away from legacy tools and methods in AAD
  • How to require safer authentications for sensitive tasks
