Roadmap for the Enterprise Mobility + Security suites of subscription services, which include Premium editions of Azure Active Directory, Azure Information Protection, as well as Intune and Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps (formerly Microsoft Cloud App Security).

Azure Active Directory includes numerous features to enable interoperability with Active Directory on-premises, Microsoft 365 and third-party applications, and enable administration of AAD users and groups. Some additional services can help improve AAD security, at additional cost. Each of the reports in this kit discusses different features, technologies, or additional services that help with AAD management and security.
