Multi-Factor Authentication and Why It’s Important

Multi-Factor Authentication

Multi-Factor Authentication in Office 365 and the Enterprise Mobility + Security Suite

Microsoft reported in their breach investigation report that over 75% of network intrusions originated from exploited weak or stolen credentials. So, how can companies protect against threats from hackers who are trying to access their data? 

Microsoft’s Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) helps stop hackers through a process of authentication. It requires the use of more than one verification method and adds a second layer of security to user sign-ins and identity transactions. With MFA in place,hackers do not have access to the second-factordevice to login. The additional verification methods can include SMS text verification, mobile app approval or a phone call (with or without a pin).

Comparing Microsoft Office 365 F1 vs E1 Licensing Plans for Firstline Workers

Comparing Microsoft Office 365 F1 vs E1 Licensing Plans for Firstline Workers

Firstline Workers – a workforce comprised of over 2 billion employees including retail sales associates, hospitality staff, medical workers and teams on the manufacturing floor - are often the first and only representation of your brand with your customers.
