Secure hybrid access: Secure legacy apps with Azure Active Directory

You can now protect your on-premises and cloud legacy authentication applications by connecting them to Azure Active Directory (AD) with:

You can bridge the gap and strengthen your security posture across all applications with Azure AD capabilities like Azure AD Conditional Access and Azure AD Identity Protection. By having Azure AD as an Identity provider (IDP), you can use modern authentication and authorization methods like single sign-on (SSO) and multifactor authentication (MFA) to secure your on-premises legacy applications.

Secure hybrid access through Azure AD Application Proxy

Using Application Proxy you can provide secure remote access to your on-premises web applications. Your users don’t need to use a VPN. Users benefit by easily connecting to their applications from any device after a SSO. Application Proxy provides remote access as a service and allows you to easily publish your on-premise applications to users outside the corporate network. It helps you scale your cloud access management without requiring you to modify your on-premises applications. Plan an Azure AD Application Proxy deployment as a next step.

Secure hybrid access through Azure AD partner integrations

In addition to Azure AD Application Proxy, Microsoft partners with third-party providers to enable secure access to your on-premises applications and applications that use legacy authentication.
