The Application Usage report includes a usage summary for all Software as a Service (SaaS) applications that are integrated with the organization's directory.


Review the list of app registrations on a regular basis to look for risky apps that users have enabled that could cause data spillage or accidental elevation of privilege. Attackers can often get access to data illicitly through third-party SaaS applications.

NOTE: Nessus has provided the target output to assist in reviewing the benchmark to ensure target compliance.


To review the Application Usage report:

Navigate to Microsoft Entra admin center https://entra.microsoft.com/.

Click to expand Azure Active Directory > Applications select Enterprise applications.

Under Activity select Usage & insights.

Review the information.
