Microsoft has updated Azure to now offer Roles-Based Access Control (RBAC), a feature that had been previously available in beta.

According to Microsoft’s Alex Simons, RBAC was the number one request of potential Azure enterprise customers.

“Separation of Authority may sound like the kind of thing only people with tin foil hats spend time worrying about,” Simons wrote in a post announcing the news. “But in the real world, without a great RBAC system to enable appropriate separation of authority, it’s nearly impossible for companies of any real size to responsibly use cloud services.”

A full overview of the new offering is available on Azure’s website.
