Let us understand the scenario. An organization wishes to implement Office 365. Since the access of SharePoint and Exchangeis possible using a browser, one fear is that if the user password is cracked, then the unauthorized user will have access to the Company Data. This issue can be minimized by using Multi factor authentication or Office 365 MFA. Office 365 offers an elegant implementation of the same.
There is enough data available which suggests that the Account hacking can be reduced by 95% if we enable Multi Factor Authentication.
Multi-factor authentication is a process where a user is prompted during the sign-in process for an additional form of identification, such as to enter a code on their cellphone or to provide a fingerprint scan. With Multi-Factor Authentication for Office 365, users are required to acknowledge a phone call, text message, or an app notification on their smartphone after correctly entering their password. Only after this second authentication factor has been satisfied a user can sign in.
If your organization is using 2-step verification for Office 365, the easiest verification method to use is Microsoft Authenticator. It’s just one click instead of typing in a 6-digit code. For that you just need to download and install the Microsoft Authenticator app for Android play store or iOS.
So, what we have seen is that the Multi factor Authentication Solution which is available in Office 365 MFA, will make the Service more secure thereby minimizing the chances of a data breach taking place.
If you wish to implement this Secure Solution in your Company or if you want more information on how this service can be useful to you kindly,
