Athens, Greece – 13 July 2020 – The webinar “Simplifying App Access with F5 and Microsoft Azure Active Directory” was successfully completed, an initiative of Pylones Hellas, Gold Unity Partner of F5 Networks in Greece and Cyprus, where complete identification and user access solution were presented with F5 solutions and Microsoft Azure’s Active Directory.
The webinar was attended by IT Executives, Systems Administrators and Applications Specialists from a wide range of businesses and organizations which they already are in Microsoft Azure or planning to go into it. A common challenge for all of the above is that they have a plethora of different applications (modern, classic legacy applications, SaaS etc), which are usually located in a different environment (on premise, public or private cloud etc), the older of these applications do not support modern authentication protocols, in which case they fail to achieve an overall approach to secure user access, whether they are employees, associates or customers, in all their operations without exception.
In this webinar, Pylones Hellas, F5 and Microsoft have shown that in a simple and highly economical way, users can be identified with Microsoft Azure’s Active Directory while F5’s Access Policy Manager (APM) guarantees a safe access of users in all applications. The solution provides the ability of instantly and easily expand in case of need and most importantly, the ability to share all applications to the user under one dashboard (federation). In addition, the presenters referred to the secure access solution offered by F5’s Access Policy Manager (APM) to Office 365.
The best practices for the transfer of applications and processes of organizations in Azure, the challenges around it and the wide range of services offered by Microsoft in this popular cloud environment were analyzed.
