Increase your Office 365 security and prevent your systems from being compromised by enabling multi-factor authentication.
What is Multi-Factor Authentication?
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is the minimum level of security we recommend to keep your business secure. You will need this as well as your password to keep your business secure - it shouldn't even be a thought!
Nowadays, even the most complex of passwords can now be guessed by a determined hacker so additional methods such as Multi-Factor Authentication are becoming essential to protect your data.
Multi-Factor Authentication works by requiring two or more authentication methods for extra security. For example, when a user logs into their Office 365 account they would:
Login to Office 365 with their username and password
A unique code will be sent to their mobile phone
They must enter this unique code to login to Office 365
...it's that simple!
How will multi-factor authentication benefit me?
Today's IT administrators deal with pressures and demands from all sides, including the critical need for top-notch security. As cyber criminals morph their methods in ever-more clever and complex ways, admins must protect the network in such a way that access remains easy.
Multi-factor authentication enables IT admins to rest a little easier, knowing that they have deployed a security strategy that protects the company's platforms and users alike, thus reducing complexity while ensuring access and boosting the flexibility of remote workers.
