Today, Microsoft announced that its Edge for Android and iOS will support Single Sign-on (SSO) and conditional access, two corporate access protection technologies.
"Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) is excited to provide conditional access protection for Microsoft Edge on iOS and Android," Microsoft product manager Mayunk Jain announced. "This integration expands your management capabilities when you install Microsoft Edge for the best browsing experience across all enterprise endpoints."
Two new features are now available for Edge mobile in public view. They are:
Single sign-on (SSO) . As it does for consumers with its Microsoft account (MSA), Microsoft allows its corporate users to enjoy an SSO experience across connected web apps and services through Azure Active Directory (AAD). So now, Microsoft Edge on mobile can join SSO so users can access AAD-connected web apps and services without having to log in again.
Conditional access. Now, organizations can require their employees to use Microsoft Intune-protected Edge mobile instead of unprotected browsers such as Safari or Chrome to access AAD-connected web apps and services. "This allows you to secure access and prevent data leakage through unprotected browser programs," explains Jain. "A similar protection can be applied to Office 365 services such as Exchange Online and SharePoint Online, the Office portal, and access to local (intranet) sites via Azure AD Application Proxy." Users trying to use an unprotected browser will be prompted to open the Edge instead.
In addition to these features, Microsoft Edge on mobile also supports Dual-Identity (separate corporate and personal work identities), configuration settings (for a website shortcut, bookmarks, MyApp integration, Azure app proxy, allow and block URL lists, and more) , fast page rendering and a rich set of personalization and productivity features when managed by Microsoft EMS, Jain notes.
