Conditional Access

Use Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) to keep your workforce secure and productive by enforcing Conditional Access and access control with real-time adaptive policies.
Implement Conditional Access

What is Conditional Access?

Conditional Access enables organizations to configure and fine-tune access control policies with contextual factors such as user, device, location, and real-time risk information. This helps control what a specific user can access, and how and when they have access.

Why Conditional Access through Azure AD?

Todays remote workforce connects to company resources from a variety of devices, locations, and time zones. Conditional access policies allow users to work from anywhere without being locked out or having to request special access.

In response to questionable access requests, depending on the potential threat level, Conditional Access may prompt the user to use MFA, may provide limited access, or may monitor access throughout the user session.

When to implement Conditional Access

There’s never a bad time to implement conditional access policies to protect your network, but companies typically choose conditional access:

– During a transition to a hybrid or remote workforce

– When a breach has occurred

– After a significant change to your tenant configuration

    • A migration/consolidation
    • A divestiture/carveout

– If suspicious logins occur on a regular basis

How to get started with Conditional Access

Transitioning to conditional access begins with a free assessment with one of Finchloom’s Azure AD experts. Through this assessment, we will learn about your environment and the systems your organization currently uses, and create an actionable plan to execute the migration to Azure AD (if not done already). Our technical team will also train your IT staff to create and manage conditional access policies so you can administer your new environment without additional support.
