Microsoft Entra ID Governance

Enhance productivity and security

Balancing security and productivity, Microsoft Entra ID Governance brings precise access controls to critical resources, safeguards assets, and enhances workforce efficiency. In the name, Entra ID Governance enables you to govern access to resources through workflow automation and entitlement access for both employees, guests, and partners.

Improve productivity: Streamline access for employees, suppliers, and business partners to both cloud-based and on-premises applications and services at scale by removing manual approvals.

Strengthen security: Leverage machine learning for access decisions to mitigate the potential risks associated with access misuse and establish reviews to verify the ongoing user, group or access privileges.

Automate routine tasks: Assign routine resource access requests to relevant business groups and automate the approval process for standard resource access.

Entra ID Governance builds on features in Entra ID P2 offering new capabilities across four areas.

Available from the start of 2023, this capability will enable recommendations for employers during access review processes. Microsoft’s machine learning will utilise a scoring mechanism to identify differing behaviour between users within one ‘group’, if one or few users behave differently to the majority, this will revoke their access.
  • Ensure up to date access policies for new or moving staff
  • Minimise the risk of compromise and audit findings
