What is Microsofts Azure Active Directory?

Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is Microsoft’s enterprise cloud-based identity and access management (IAM) solution. Azure AD is the backbone of the Office 365 system, and it can sync with on-premise Active Directory and provide authentication to other cloud-based systems such as Ronspot via OAuth.

Is Ronspot compatible with Azure AD?

Yes. Whether employees are on-site or remote, Azure AD gives staff seamless access to the Ronspot service so they can book and release desks or parking spaces from anywhere.

What does it mean for an employee using Ronspot?

Single sign-on means an employee doesn't have to sign in to every application they use. The staff member logs in once and that credential is used for other apps too. If you're an end user, you likely don't care much about SSO details. You just want to use the apps that make you productive without having to type your password so much.

At its most basic level, it also means company employees will not need to register independently to use Ronspot. They simply download the Ronspot App from the App Store and choose using the 'Sign In with Microsoft' option. Pending confirmation by the company administrator, this grants them instant access to Ronspot. 

So how does it work?

Single sign-on provides a giant leap forward in how users sign in and use applications. Single sign-on based authentication systems are often called "modern authentication". Modern authentication and single sign-on fall into a category of computing called Identity and Access Management (IAM).

SSO is an authentication process in which a user is provided access to the Ronspot App and/or Ronspot website by using only a single set of login credentials. Typically, their work email and password. This prevents the need for the employee to register and log in separately.

The user credentials and other identifying information are stored and managed by a centralized system called Identity Provider (IdP). The Identity Provider is a trusted system that provides access to other websites and applications.

SSO based authentication systems are commonly used in enterprise environments where employees require access to multiple applications/websites of their organizations. In this scenario, the SSO service provider uses the organization’s directory, like Microsoft Active Directory, Azure Active Directory, for authenticating users and providing access to the various applications/websites.

As IT Manager, I also want to manage my employees access to Ronspot via Microsoft Intune. Can I do this?

Yes. Intune and Azure Active Directory work together to make sure only managed and compliant devices can access Ronspot. As IT Administrator you can deploy Ronspot as a 3rd party App within your ompany Intune account and manage access from this point.
