If you use Microsoft cloud services – either Azure or Office 365 – you know that identity and access management is performed through the use of Azure Active Directory.
Over time Azure AD has been improved by adding new capabilities and features to help you manage and secure your identity and access.
Well, a new product family – Microsoft Entra – has been introduced to centralize and simplify identity and access capabilities.
Azure AD portal nor Azure AD as product is going to disappear.
The new Entra family includes Azure AD (off course) but also Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM) and decentralized identity (you know, the Verifiable credentials currently in preview – see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/verifiable-credentials/decentralized-identifier-overview).
To start enjoying Microsoft Entra, just connect to the new portal https://entra.microsoft.com/
It simplifies the access to Azure AD features related to identity and access management.
