Today, I’m pleased to announce the general availability of Microsoft Entra ID Governance, our complete identity governance product that ensures the right people have the right access to the right resources at the right time. This cloud-delivered product includes capabilities that were already available in Azure Active Directory, part of Microsoft Entra, plus our most advanced tools that simplify identity, management, and governance of on-premises and cloud apps and resources.
The Microsoft Entra ID Governance dashboard for security professionals.
For customers new to governance or those looking to modernize an existing solution, ID Governance extends the market-leading identity and access management platform in Azure Active Directory. It’s easy to deploy, and includes capabilities for meeting compliance requirements with ML powered access review recommendations, a no-code/low-code approach for extensibility, workflows for automating identity lifecycle management tasks, and access provisioning for SaaS and on-premises applications. In addition, a new dashboard provides a comprehensive and actionable overview of the current state of the organization’s identity governance. Entitlement management can now leverage Microsoft Entra Verified ID to confirm users’ digital identities before automatically granting access to specific access packages of resources.

ID Governance can be added to Azure AD Premium P1 or P2 licenses as a cost-effective way to bring comprehensive identity governance to all employees and business guests, for $7 per user per month for Azure AD Premium Plan 1 (P1) customers. Additional pricing and offers are available for P2 customers; contact your Microsoft sales team for details. Additional resources and information is available on our ID Governance page.
Starting July 1, ID Governance can be purchased online, from licensing partners, or via Microsoft sales teams; or trialed by visiting our website. We also are happy to share that Edgile, a Wipro company, EY, KPMG, PwC. InSpark, Invoke, and Oxford Computer Group, are ready to assist our mutual customers to plan and implement ID Governance.
