Although Microsoft’s widely used MIM will continue to be available until 2029, many companies and organizations are preemptively making the switch to newer software with more modern support. To assist in this complicated and often confusing process, Azure IAM is offering their services as a cybersecurity consultant to ensure the process runs smoothly.

The cybersecurity firm can assist in migration onto software such as SailPoint, which has a collaborative contract with Microsoft, or onto the direct successor to MIM, Microsoft Azure. Both of these software packages can be used to perform many of the same on-premise identity management processes provided by MIM.
Azure IAM is offering these services in order to fill the void left over by the end-of-life for Forefront Identity Manager, which previously could be used to automatically map MIM databases onto Azure Active Directory, but which was discontinued in 2021. However, the process can still be carried out manually, which is the specialty of the Azure IAM security team.
Once the migration process is complete, the firm can also assist in the creation of robust access management ecosystems using a variety of modular Microsoft products. These solutions are ideal for universities and other organizations storing sensitive data, as they can be used to both improve network accountability and defend against cyberattacks.
The certified professionals at Azure IAM are able to implement a versatile range of security solutions built on the back of the Azure AD software, providing administrators with an easy point of entry without sacrificing network integrity. Their firm specializes in passwordless systems and one-time permissions systems, both of which have been proven to significantly decrease the risk of breaches.
Using the systems they can establish, administrators gain the ability to consolidate multiple digital identities across several disparate systems into a single access token which can be used both for activity monitoring and access management purposes. As an added benefit, the end user also experiences fewer security checks as a result of this consolidation.
The Azure IAM security team is composed of security and access management professionals with over 50 years of industry experience between them. They have expertise in dozens of modern cybersecurity systems including Okta, OpenID, SailPoint, and many others, and possess both MCS and MCSE certifications.
