Microsoft has recently announced the public preview of Azure Active Directory’s passwordless login. This new capability enables your employees to use external security keys to sign into their Azure Active Directory-Joined Windows 10 machines (running version 1809 or higher) and get single sign-on to their cloud resources. They can also sign into Azure AD-connected apps on supported browsers including the latest versions of Microsoft Edge and Mozilla Firefox.
