Episode 78: The Modern Admin

Same product, new name - RIP Azure AD/long live Entra ID! In this episode we’re joined by long-time friend of the show Michael Van Horenbeeck to discuss the recent Entra related announcements and Microsoft’s expansion into Security Service Edge (SSE) with two new products – Microsoft Entra Internet Access and Microsoft Entra Private Access. We’ve all heard the TLAs PIM, PAW, and talk of Tier0 configurations, but what are these and how are these relevant to the modern admin? Should we be evolving the way we manage our environments or is it just a matter of buying new technologies to hopefully keep us ahead of bad actors? Michael shares his thoughts.
