Our company is working on a webapplication that holds privacy-sensitive data.
Therefor we're looking for an appropriate way to secure it.
We're thinking of using Azure Active Directory, and are looking at the price information: https://azure.microsoft.com/pricing/details/active-directory/
As we want multi-factor authentication, we need edition Premium P1 at least. To enable MFA, additional costs are needed.
We're aiming at about 500 users for our application.
If I'm correct (and I hope I'm not), this would mean a yearly license fee of about € 37500.
For 500 users, that seems like a lot! It would we well above the license fee we're thinking of for the use of the application itself.
What am I missing here?
- Do we get more than we need with this solution?
- Is my calculation incorrect? (What is most of the 500 users allready use AAD in their own environment? How does the billing work?)
- Or is this just what it costs you to provide a safe and secure solution?
- Or are there any other cheaper solutions?
