Today, AWS Directory Service for Microsoft Active Directory (Enterprise Edition), also known as AWS Microsoft AD, simplified on-premises user sign-in to the AWS Management Console. Now, you can enable your users to access and manage AWS resources by signing in to the AWS Management Console with their on-premises Active Directory (AD) credentials. This enables you to reuse your on-premises AD security policies such as password expiration and account lockout while still controlling access to the AWS Management Console and AWS resources.
