Over the past six months, we have seen organizations adapt to remote business environments and engage with an unprecedented number of external users, and we’ve seen our own service usage growing like crazy for B2B and B2C scenarios. With this growth, we also know that security continues to be top of mind.
Today, we are excited to announce the Public Preview of Conditional Access and Identity Protection for Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) B2C. We also have an update to our pricing that makes all Azure AD External Identities features more predictable and affordable with support for premium security features. On the blog today, we’re welcoming back Robin Goldstein, to share more about the new capabilities and pricing.
Previously, I shared our Azure AD External Identities vision to make it easier to secure, manage and build apps for collaborating and connecting with external users. Today’s announcement, which adds Conditional Access and Identity Protection to Azure AD B2C, is another step in our journey to help organizations protect all their identities with Microsoft’s world-class security features.
Protect your customers, apps, and brand
Security is essential to maintaining your customers’ and consumers’ trust and protecting your organization’s data. That’s why so many of our Azure AD customers rely on Azure AD Identity Protection and Azure AD Conditional Access. Identity Protection helps organizations automatically protect against account compromise with cloud intelligence, powered by advanced risk detection based on heuristics, User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA), and machine learning (ML) from signals across the Microsoft ecosystem. By pairing Conditional Access policies with the power of Identity Protection, admins can automate responses to risky authentications with the appropriate policy action. This combination already helps Fortune 500 organizations prevent over 10 million attacks each month.
By making risk-based Conditional Access and risk detection features of Identity Protection available in Azure AD B2C, our customers can now:
Examine risk detections flagged through the portal
Create a Conditional Access policy based on the level of sign-in risk
Create a user flow in Azure AD B2C

Conditional Access and Identity Protection for Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) B2C will be progressively rolled out across Azure regions starting on September 1. To start using the new features, you will need to do a few things first:
