Securing Guest Access Without Paying More with Azure Active Directory B2B

Securing-Guest-Access----Azure-AD-B2B

Working with external companies and partner organizations just became a lot easier thanks to one of Azure AD’s service features: Azure AD Business-to-Business (B2B).

Companies always looking for solutions to improve their security and simplify collaboration. In today’s workplace, it’s very common for organizations to work with external partners. Office 365 is a great solution to collaborate with people both inside and outside your organizations, as it provides an easy way to share documents with external users or invite them to join your Microsoft Teams. Unfortunately, when you share using the default methods, your external users aren’t subject to the same security policies, such as multifactor authentication, that you’ve set up for your internal users.

A hidden gem that is part of Azure Active Directory and solves this problem is leveraging Azure Active Directory B2B users.

In the Microsoft July Update, Microsoft stated that most features minus a few Enterprise Voice features are still pending on the roadmap. However, upon close inspection, several native features are now referred out to 3rd party solutions (e.g. Whiteboard).

According to reviews and our Interlink experts, there is not a true parity between the two – yet. Teams has recently added a few key elements from Skype Online, that had previously been missing:
