Introducing Azure AD Pass-Through Authentication and Seamless Single Sign-on

Now in public preview, Azure AD Pass-Through Authentication is a 3rd alternative in the options for “single sign-on” between Active Directory and Azure AD.  Designed to remove the infrastructure requirements of AD Federation Services, it provides a more seamless SSO experience than the Password Hash Sync through AAD Connect.   

With the use of AAD Connect and a simple connector, AAD PTA relies on secure outbound communication to validate username  and password credentials against your on-premises Active Directory.  No need to sync AD passwords to AAD, nor deploy AD FS!
