Does your IT processes include methods to review and update the on-premises components for Azure-connected tools?

It should.

The components are regularly updated for performance improvements and feature additions, but more importantly, they are sometimes updated to for better security.

The following Azure AD components should be upgraded as new versions are released:

  • Azure AD Connect
  • Azure AD Application Proxy Connectors
  • Azure AD Pass-through authentication agents
  • Azure AD Connect Health Agents

Most components have an auto-update setting which will automate the upgrade process, but some don’t. Be aware of those that need manual intervention, but also make sure that the auto-update component is working.
