What does Microsoft Entra Verified Identity mean?

In today’s digital age, businesses increasingly rely on online interactions and transactions. As a result, security and reliability become essential factors for successful business operations. Given the increase in cyber threats and identity fraud, solid digital identity verification is crucial. Microsoft is therefore introducing the Microsoft Entra Verified ID, which provides a decentralized identity to users and exchanges data securely while maintaining privacy. In this article, we dive deeper into the world of Microsoft Entra Verified ID and how it helps businesses secure themselves.

What is Decentralized Identity?

Decentralized identity is an innovative approach that is changing the way individuals, organizations and devices communicate digitally. At the heart of this is a transparent and secure identity trust. Users have complete control over their digital identity and associated data. Unlike centralized systems, the decentralized approach provides protection for privacy and online interactions through a secure network, usually based on blockchain, distributed ledger technology or cryptography with public/private keys.

Why Choose Microsoft Entra Verified ID?

Microsoft Entra Verified ID offers numerous benefits that revolutionize corporate identity verification:

  • Allows companies to easily issue and accept verifiable credentials through their Microsoft Entra management portal.
  • Ability to customize verifiable credentials for individuals using ready-made templates or unique rules.
