multi-factor authentication (MFA)

multi-factor authentication

Office 365 shifts many traditional datacenter security responsibilities to Microsoft, but customers are still responsible for security controls impacting their organization’s data. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is one of the most effective tools to combat identity compromise and protect your business.

Generally, multi-factor authentication (MFA) is designed to enhance identity verification using two or more pieces of evidence (or factors) to login. For most organizations, the first factor is something users know: their username and password. The second factor is commonly something users possess, like a phone or authenticator application. With biometrics, the second factor can instead use a piece of evidence from the users themselves, like a fingerprint. The goal is that the second factor is readily available and the experience is easy for the user.

MFA can be used throughout an organization, but a prioritized adoption plan often consists of MFA for:

  • Administrator accounts for portals and tools.
  • Remote access
  • Sensitive SaaS Applications, like Office 365, CRMs and ERP software.
  • On-premises applications such as an intranet.
