AD-Joined provides Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) access using existing Active Directory (AD) accounts. Advanced Server Access normally automates account lifecycle management for devices by creating and managing local accounts on a device. This feature allows teams to control device access using their existing AD accounts, groups, and permissions.

Also, AD-Joined can centrally manage and sync available servers from the AD domain. Advanced Server Access tracks connections or server changes in the audit system.
