Conditional access (ca)

Conditional Access protects access to company data or applications from unauthorized individuals who log in, for example, from outside the company network or from non-corporate devices and other locations.

It’s a tool used by Azure Active Directory to receive and analyze signals, make decisions and enforce the organization’s security policies. Conditional access is a key component of the identity-based management layer.

How will conditional access help you?

The organization’s administrators have two main goals, which can be somewhat challenging to reconcile:

  1. Enabling users to work comfortably, productively at any time, from any device and location.
  2. Ensure maximum protection of the organization’s resources.

Conditional access will allow your users to access company resources or applications only if they meet the conditions you (the administrator) set. In practice, if a user logs in from a corporate device but from outside the corporate network, he or she must meet an additional condition or conditions to obtain authorization.

In the face of remote work, administrators need to be sure that the user attempting to access specific data is actually who they say they are. Conditional Acess within Azure AD can help you verify your identity. It ensures that users will have to successfully pass a verification process before they can access any company data, and you will have full control over the flow of data in your company.

How does it work in practice?

Conditional access is granted on a risk assessment basis. It is calculated based on the analysis of data collected from the user who wants to access the resources in question. A user who meets a sufficient number of conditions, checked during login by Conditional Access without any additional action on the part of the user, will not have to authenticate additionally.

This means that with the implementation of appropriate access control methods, the security of the organization is at the highest level, without losses in comfort or productivity of employees.

Why implement conditional access?

Real-time control

Grant and revoke privileges to selected company resources as needed, in real time

Automatic response to risk

Conditional Access automatically identifies and catches suspicious activity related to unusual access attempts.

Individual access conditions

Grant access based on the rules you choose, for example based on a variety of factors, such as: the type of device, or its location.
