Freshly brewed with Microsoft Azure and Microsoft 365

Enable Enterprise State Roaming in Azure Active Directory

Windows 10 and Windows 11 synchronizes user settings to Azure Cloud via enterprise state roaming. The settings of the applications are thus the same on every device to which a user logs on. When installing a new device, many settings are already present.

Enterprise State Roaming encrypts the data with Azure Right Management (Azure RMS) and synchronizes it to the Azure Cloud.

Enterprise state roaming is well suited for enterprise devices that have different locations outside the usual office premises. Unlike roaming profiles, enterprise state roaming does not require a connection to on-premise servers.

Hybrid Azure AD Join Configuration

Active Directory has become indispensable in corporate networks. The increasing demand for mobile workplaces or the generally higher availability places greater demands on such infrastructures: redundant servers, redundant internet lines, VPN and so on.

Microsoft offers Azure AD, a service that provides these requirements cost-effectively. The service is built globally with high availability. In combination with additional features such as SSO (Single Sign On), Conditional Access or Identity Management, Azure Active Directory offers additional features that considerably increase security and would only be cost-intensive to implement with a local Active Directory infrastructure.

With Hybrid Azure AD Join, you get the best of both worlds (local and cloud) at the same time. The device has access to the on-premises Active Directory and Azure Active Directory.

Azure AD Join Windows Devices

With Azure AD Join, devices are directly integrated into Azure AD. It does not require a local Active Directory. Azure AD Join is ideal for companies that do not want to run an on-premises infrastructure.
Azure AD Join lets you manage devices centrally and securely.
