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). The end user experience can be improved by not promptinga second factor when they are on a trusted network or using a domain joined PC.
