Enterprise Mobility + Security


Howdy folks,

Many of you probably associate Azure AD with Office 365 & Microsoft Azure. That makes a lot of sense. Those are the cloud services our customers use the most with Azure AD.

But you might be surprised to learn that customers use Azure AD with a TON of applications built by 3rd party developers. This is one of our most popular and fastest growing capabilities. This month alone our customers used Azure AD with more than 170,000 3rd party applications!
