Identity and Access

Today I had the honor to speak at the Azure Saturday event in Copenhagen. I’m really impressed with the quality and the list of international speakers are really impressive. Great job! My presentation was about Protecting Cloud Identities using EMS, Intune and Azure AD Premium features, and as promised during the session, here is a copy of the PowerPoint slides. Looking forward to be back next year! Azure saturday 2017 – Protecting cloud identities using emsfrom Ronni Pedersen      That’s it… Enjoy! +Ronni Pedersen

Introduction For most organizations, Office 365 (mailboxes) can contain both high business impact and personally identifiable information, so it’s important that we track who logs on to the mailboxes in the organization and what actions are taken. By default, mailbox auditing in Office 365 isn’t turned on, so this guide will help you to setup and verify mailbox auditing in Office 365. This guide will walk you through the following steps: Step 1: Connect to Exchange Online Step 2: Get the current state of audit logging Step 3: Enable mailbox audit logging Step 4: Set the age limit for mailbox…

As a Cloud Consultant working with products that are part of the Office 365 and the Microsoft Enterprise Mobility +Security Suite (EMS), I often get a lot of questions about multi-factor authentication (MFA), and how to get started. Most customers today has a strategy about MFA when employees are trying to access corporate company data from outside the company perimeter. But when customers are using cloud services like Office 365, OneDrive and SharePoint that boundary moves from a physical boundary to the user identity. Therefore the requirement for multi-factor authentication is something that most customers wants to implement as part…

Over the last 12 months, I’ve been involved in more than 25 projects with customers that wanted to enable one or more Azure AD Premium and Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) features that’s only available in the Classic Azure Portal. And every time I get the same questions about how to access and configure this feature.During this period Microsoft has already announced the GA for Azure Active Directory, but there are still a few features that you need to configure in the classic Azure Portal. When you navigate to the Azure Active Directory node in the Azure Portal, you’ll find…

When working in the new Microsoft Azure Portal, and the portal feels slow, it hard to identify what’s causing the problem. By using the “Ctrl+Alt+D” command from the Azure Portal, you will get all kind of great information about load times and activated services. Really cool stuff.Check it out by using Ctrl+Alt+D anywhere in the Azure Portal./Enjoy

Today I got a call from a customer that was working on a Office 365 Project. As part of the Project they wanted to change the Exchange Email Address Policies to filter on the Company Name for each user. Only problem was that some of the users had a blank or misspelled Company name…Luckily, someone invented PowerShell so we started by pulling a list of all Company Names by running this command:Get-ADUser -Filter * -Properties Company | Group Company | Select Name,CountThe result was as expected… Too many company names. Misspelled Company Names and users with no company name specified…

This week, I created 2 new Intune tenants. One for a new customer and one for a new lab that I was preparing for our SCUG.DK User Group Meeting next week.Just to get things started, I created a simple compliance policy that check if the device is jailbroken and got the following error (in both tenants):An error occurredAn error occurred whilst saving. Request ID: 6e6d9c36-a213-40be-941a-190aa6ab2defNot much to work with, but I finally figured it out…If you configure the “Jailbroken devices” settings, and leave the “Mobile Thread Level” to the default (Not Configured) it will fail when you try to save…
