Multi-factor Authentication (MFA)

What is the single most effective measure against protecting your organization from outsider attackers? Adding multi-factor authentication to your critical applications and data! Consequently, Microsoft has crunched the numbers and MFA is 99.9% effective in preventing account breaches!

Multi-factor authentication, or requiring more than one way for a user to identify themselves, increases security tremendously. Passwords used only by themselves expose a single point of failure that is susceptible to many known exploits. These exploits include brute force attacks, shoulder surfing, e-mail phishing attacks, and credential harvesting tactics. However, Azure Active Directory has the flexibility and capability to bring Multi-factor authentication to Office 365, legacy applications, SaaS solutions, and network logons. Similarly, it can act as an independent MFA provider for custom web applications.

Azure Active Directory

Azure Active Directory is an enterprise identity service that provides single sign-on and multi-factor authentication. It also provides conditional access and integrates with thousands of 3rd party applications. There are also developer tools to integrate your apps and services.

Possible multi-factor requirements

  • Alternate E-mail setup with verification code
  • Phone call or text message with verification code
  • Microsoft Authenticator App  – digital security token or push notifications
  • Conditional Access based on user location
  • Device Managed and Compliant (requires Intune)
Additionally, Azure AD offers Azure AD Identity protection that adds automated remediation to suspicious activities including:
  • Leaked credentials
  • Unusual sign-in attempts including from infected devices, unfamiliar locations, and anonymous IP addresses
  • Sign-ins from IP addresses with unusual activities
  • Impossible travel scenarios

Biometrics / Windows Hello

Lastly, don’t forget about the latest in Bio-metric integration to bring authentication to the highest levels! Windows Hello for Business can integrate to allow for fingerprint scanning or facial recognition. Don’t need Bio-metrics but still want ease of use? Look at integrating the Microsoft Authenticator app to enforce MFA while giving users flexibility in how they authenticate.
