I recently returned from Kenya, where I visited our Microsoft Nairobi development center. Like many of you, I’ve mostly worked from home for the past year and more, so it was refreshing to meet members of our global team and inspiring to feel their passion for our mission: deliveringidentity solutionsthat secure access to everything for everyone.
This mission has never been more important, given that identity has become the focal point of our digital society. Identity enabled us to rapidly shift to remote models when the pandemic first hit, and identity will help sustain the trend toward more permanent remote and hybrid models moving forward. But other emerging trends will also have a major impact on our digital society. Our team at Microsoft, as well as the identity community at large, is working hard to make sure you have the tools and technologies you need to navigate them safely and securely.
