Microsoft Azure Starter Pack

Product by Microsoft

A must-have before getting into Microsoft Azure

The Azure Starter Pack helps businesses get started on the cloud by extending and connecting their on-premises Active Directory to Azure. This allows businesses to unify the identities of their users so that they can take the next step in centralizing the authentication and authorization process across applications and devices. This extends to a large portfolio of 2,000+ SaaS applications.

Key Features

Complete identity protection
Increase security for identities and user accounts with greater threat detection and response.
Scalable management and compliance
As your organization grows, you will be able to automate user provisioning and lifecycle management workflows, consistently issue policies and easily manage access rights.
SSO integration
Access to the Application Gallery that contains 3,000 enterprise apps that have SSO with Azure AD.


Easy installation
After you purchase the starter pack, all you need to do is enter your VPN configuration, then Ingram Micro takes it over from there.
Smoothly start in IaaS
You do not have to think big about making a move to Azure. You can start small to get your foothold first in the cloud.
Unified identity on cloud
Extend your on-premise Active Directory so that it is in sync with an Azure-native Active Directory to enable integration and SSO across all of your SaaS applications.
Become cloud-ready
By unifying your identity on Azure, you can ease your authentication and authorization for any on-premise applications, which you intend to move on to the cloud, or with any additional SaaS applications.
