Microsoft Defender for Identity

Streamline identity lifecycle management with Atech

Identity lifecycle management can be complex without the right system in place. Each new employee needs initial access to a specific set of tools and apps, and privileges are likely to change during a person’s tenure.

That’s where Identity and Access Management (IAM) systems come in. Together, the components associated with the IAM system you choose help you assign, modify and retract employee access to a host of on-premise and cloud-hosted apps.

IAM can be hard to understand and challenging to implement. The right partner can help you create a Microsoft identity protection solution tailored to your organisation.


Identity protection services from Atech

Many businesses initially use just one or two apps. Eventually, most companies incorporate a wide range of cloud-based services, PaaS solutions and tools. Employees have to remember multiple passwords, and IT departments have to track and restore access to dozens of programs.

Microsoft and Azure Active Directory identity protection services make life much easier. At Atech, we use Azure Active Directory (AD) identity protection solutions to automate workflow-driven or policy-based identities and user groups. We can even integrate existing HR systems to create seamless onboarding processes.


Our Azure identity protection services can help you:

  • Centralise and streamline employee permissions
  • Deploy changes to employee login data across a host of linked apps with ease
  • Protect sensitive password information
  • Safeguard your company data and your digital infrastructure

Microsoft Defender for Identity (MDI) vs. Azure AD Connect: What’s the difference?

Microsoft Defender for Identity (MDI) and Azure AD Connect are similar, but they’re not quite the same. Both tools can enhance security, but they do so in different ways.

Azure AD Connect is a tool that connects your on-premise Active Directory infrastructure to Azure AD, providing user-facing and app-facing authentication services.

In contrast, MDI protects your on-premise Active Directory users, and it also protects users synced to your cloud-based Azure Active Directory. If you operate a hybrid Azure AD cloud-based/on-premise environment, adding MDI sensors can help you monitor the health of your domain controller.


MDI sensors monitor your DC by:

  • Capturing parsing network traffic
  • Leveraging Windows events directly from your DC


If your MDI sensors detect any suspicious activity directed at your Active Directory, they’ll flag accounts and immediately generate an alert.
