Ilana Smith is a Principal PM Manager in the Identity engineering division at Microsoft. She is responsible for Azure Active Directory access management, building functionality that ensures that employees and partners can easily get access to the apps and resources they need, but only the ones they need and only for as long as they need it. . A twenty-year Microsoft veteran, Ilana has delivered products in the consumer and enterprise spaces, from devices to business applications to major infrastructure and now the cloud. In her free time, she likes to talk to people about how they’re likely already using Azure Active Directory, and that it offers industry-leading security they can use to protect all their apps – she’s a riot at cocktail parties.
