  • Continuous Access Evaluation with Microsoft Entra

    Continuous Access Evaluation (CAE) is a security feature in Microsoft Entra that enhances the resilience and security of cloud applications. It allows for the immediate revocation of access tokens if there's a change in user account status or tenant policy, without waiting for token expiration. Here are the key points about CAE:

    Real-Time Policy Enforcement: CAE enables near real-time enforcement of user termination, password changes, and network location changes through critical event evaluation.

    Supported Services: Initially, CAE is implemented for services like Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and Teams.

    Token Lifetime: Increases token lifetime up to 28 hours, but with the capability to revoke tokens instantly based on policy evaluation or critical events.
    Preparation: To prepare applications for CAE, developers should refer to the guide on using CAE-enabled APIs.

    For a detailed understanding of how to implement and benefit from CAE with Microsoft Entra, you can explore the official documentation.

  • On Premise vs Public Cloud vs Private Cloud vs multi-cloud : Which One Is Best and Why?


    The cloud revolution has transformed how businesses store and access data. But with various deployment models available, choosing the right option can be overwhelming. Let's explore the key differences between on-premise, public cloud, private cloud, and multi-cloud solutions.

    • On-Premise:  Imagine your own data center. You have complete control over hardware, software, and security, ideal for highly sensitive data. However, the upfront costs for infrastructure and IT staff are significant, and scalability is limited.

    • Public Cloud: Think shared office space. You rent resources from providers like Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure. This offers low upfront costs, high scalability, and easy management. However, customization is limited, and security requires a shared responsibility model.

    Private Cloud: This is like having a dedicated floor in a high-rise. You have a cloud environment built just for your organization, either on-premise or managed by a provider. It offers a high degree of control and customization, along with better scalability than on-premise. However, there are still ongoing fees and some IT expertise is needed.

    • Multi-Cloud: Imagine working from multiple co-working spaces. This approach combines resources from various public clouds and potentially private clouds. It offers increased flexibility, redundancy, and potentially lower costs by leveraging provider strengths. But managing multiple cloud environments can be complex, and vendor lock-in for specific services remains a concern.



    Public Cloud

    Private Cloud




    Shared infrastructure

    Multiple locations

    Control & Customization



    High (with some shared)


    Cost (Upfront)

    Cost-effective, scalable

    Control, customization

    Flexibility, redundancy


    High cost, limited scale

    Limited control, vendor lock-in

    More expensive than public

    Increased complexity

    Choosing the right cloud model depends on your specific needs. Consider factors like security requirements, budget, IT expertise, and desired control and scalability. By understanding the pros and cons of each option, you can make an informed decision that empowers your business in the cloud era.

  • What is The Azure Monitor Agent (AMA) ?

    The Azure Monitor Agent (AMA) is a tool that collects monitoring data from the guest operating system of Azure and hybrid virtual machines. It then delivers this data to Azure Monitor, which can be used by various features, insights, and other services like Microsoft Sentinel and Microsoft Defender for Cloud¹. 
    AMA is designed to replace all of Azure Monitor's legacy monitoring agents. It offers several benefits, including cost savings through targeted data collection rules, simpler management, and enhanced security with Managed Identity and Microsoft Entra tokens¹. 

    It's important to note that the Log Analytics agent is on a deprecation path and won't be supported after August 31, 2024. Therefore, if you're using the Log Analytics agent, you should migrate to the new Azure Monitor agent before that date¹.

  • User Consent Settings in Microsoft 365

    User Consent Settings in Microsoft 365

    When it comes to applications that request access to your organization's data, managing user consent is crucial. Here's how you can configure and control user consent settings:

    1. **Default Behavior**:
       - By default, all users are allowed to consent to applications for permissions that don't require administrator approval.
       - However, to reduce the risk of malicious apps gaining access to your organization's data, consider allowing user consent only for applications published by verified publishers.

    2. **Configuring User Consent**:
       - Sign in to the **Microsoft Entra admin center** as a **Global Administrator**.
       - Navigate to **Identity > Applications > Enterprise applications > Consent and permissions > User consent settings**.
       - Choose the consent setting you want to configure for all users (e.g., allow or restrict user consent).
       - Save your settings.

    3. **Admin Approval Workflow**:
       - If you disable user consent, admins must consent to apps before users can use them.
       - Set up an **admin consent workflow** in the Microsoft Entra admin center so users can request admin approval for blocked apps.

    Remember that users can grant access only to apps they own, and they can't give an app access to other users' information.
