Windows 10 supports Azure Active Directory

Windows 10, the next generation of Microsoft’s Windows operating system, expected to launch this summer will have Azure Active Directory login feature that will allow Azure Active Directory users to login on their Windows 10 devices. Existing Active Directory domains, that have joined, will have single sign-on access to cloud-based services like Office 365, the Windows Store, or any other Azure Active Directory-aware application.

Users will be able to join their work Windows 10 devices directly to Azure Active Directory and sign into Windows using their Azure Active Directory account and password – while still having single sign-on access to Office 365 and to on-premises services that leverage Active Directory authentication. The devices can be automatically enrolled into a mobile device management (MDM) service at the same time.

Users will be able to add their work account to their personal (BYOD) Windows 10 devices, establishing a link between Windows and their work account managed in Azure Active Directory, which will provide single sign-on access to the organization’s services. The devices may also be automatically enrolled in mobile device management (MDM).
