Microsoft Office 365 has become the de facto solution for companies in the Microsoft ecosystem. With a cloud solution comes the added need to protect your precious data from malicious actors and one way we’re working to protect our client’s data deploying multi-factor authentication for Office 365.
Multi-factor authentication is a method for verifying a user’s access with a second method such as a text message or app (we highly recommend the app!) Microsoft has done a really good job with the solution making it easy to setup, use, and not too intrusive for end users. Once your Outlook client or phone client has been authenticated, multi-factor prompts tend to stay out of the way.
