Multi-Factor AuthenticationMulti-Factor Authentication: Azure Multi-Factor Authentication helps prevent unauthorized access to on-premises and cloud applications by providing an additional layer of authentication.


Notification HubsNotification Hubs: Notification Hubs provide a highly scalable, cross-platform push notification infrastructure that enables you to either broadcast push notifications to millions of users at once or tailor notifications to individual users.


Operational InsightsOperational Insights: Operational Insights enables you to collect, correlate and visualize all your machine data such as event logs, network logs, performance data and much more from both your on-premises and cloud assets.


Azure Cache including Redis

Redis Cache: Based on the popular open source Redis Cache, this gives you access to a secure, dedicated cache for your Azure applications.


RemoteAppRemoteApp: Azure RemoteApp helps employees stay productive anywhere, and on a variety of devices – Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, or Android.


SchedulerScheduler: Azure Scheduler allows you to invoke actions that call HTTP/S endpoints or post messages to a storage queue on any schedule. In Scheduler, you can create jobs that reliably call services either inside or outside of Azure and run those jobs right away, on a regular or irregular schedule, or set them to run at a future date.


Azure SearchSearch: Azure Search is a fully-managed service for adding sophisticated search capabilities to web and mobile applications without the typical complexities of full-text search.


Service BusService Bus: Azure Service Bus is a messaging infrastructure that sits between applications allowing them to exchange messages for improved scale and resiliency.
