Office 2013 public preview makes it easier to try out modern authentication, offers production support

For those who want to try out the modern authentication features in Office 2013, it’s easier to do so with the public preview, which also provides production support for participants.

“Modern authentication brings Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL)-based sign in to Office 2013 Windows clients. Previously, this was only available as a private preview for testing,” writes Paul Andrew, technical product manager for Identity Management on the Office 365 team. “Now modern authentication is available to any customer running the March 2015 or later update for Office 2013. It will continue to be off by default in the client, but can be enabled on Windows machines by participants in the public preview.”

Head over to the Office Blogs to find out more about the modern authentication public preview.
