Xirrus EasyPass Integrates With Microsoft Office 365 for Easy, Instant Wi-Fi Access

Xirrus announced integration with Microsoft Office 365 authentication to streamline Wi-Fi connectivity for organizations using Microsoft cloud-based office applications. A feature of the Xirrus EasyPass suite of access services, this new functionality simplifies and expedites how organizations deliver secure Wi-Fi access via the cloud-based Microsoft authentication system they are already using. To save on costs and meet performance requirements, businesses increasingly leverage cloud-hosted offerings over self-hosted or stand-alone applications. According to a recent 451 Research survey, cloud-first workload deployments in enterprises are common, as 38% of enterprise respondents indicated that they prioritize cloud-managed applications over on-premise applications. Microsoft cloud-based applications for businesses have one of the footprints within the enterprise. Adoption for Microsoft Office 365 soared from 12.4 million subscribers to 22.2 million between Microsoft's fiscal third quarter of 2015 and third quarter of 2016. Xirrus EasyPass with Microsoft Office 365 integration adds additional cost and performance benefits by combining authentication through the Microsoft cloud ecosystem with local Wi-Fi network access. Microsoft login credentials, unique to every person and used to access Microsoft applications, now also provide access to the Xirrus Wi-Fi network with a single sign-on experience.
