Have Peace of Mind Your Systems Are Secure With Microsoft MFA

An additional layer of security to protect your systems and data.

Microsoft multi-factor authentication (MFA) adds an additional layer of security to protect user accounts and systems from unauthorised access. It works by requiring your users to provide two or more forms of authentication when logging in, which makes it more difficult for attackers to gain access to the account or system. As a business, you should have it as part of your security stack as an absolute minimum.

Cyber Security Solutions / Microsoft Multifactor Authentication (MFA)

Microsoft MFA gives you added peace of mind, so you can focus on your business.

We talk a lot about adopting a layered approach to cyber security, because it’s by far the most effective way to protect against cyber threats. Part of that layered approach should involve multi-factor authentication – when we work with businesses, we advise that you should at least have this, as an absolute minimum.

Microsoft Multifactor Authentication (MFA) adds an additional layer of security to protect user accounts and systems from unauthorised access. It works by requiring users to provide two or more forms of authentication when logging in, which makes it more difficult for attackers to gain access to the account or system.

When a user attempts to log in to an account or system protected by MFA, they must provide their primary authentication factor (such as a password or PIN) and then a second factor, such as a code sent to their mobile device or a biometric scan. This means that even if an attacker has obtained the user’s password, they will still need the user’s second factor to gain access.

That’s your systems covered, but to ensure you’re doing as much as you can, we couple that with Microsoft Hello, which protects your devices. Windows Hello is a biometrics-based technology that enables Windows 10 and 11 users to authenticate secure access to their devices with a fingerprint, iris scan or facial recognition. The sign-in mechanism is essentially an alternative to passwords and is a more user friendly, secure and reliable method for your teams to access their devices.

MFA can help protect against a variety of attacks, including phishing, password theft and credential stuffing. It is an effective security measure that can help safeguard sensitive information and prevent unauthorised access to systems and resources.

Ultimately, implementing Microsoft Multifactor Authentication and Microsoft Hello can help you protect your sensitive information and resources, meet regulatory requirements and avoid costly data breaches and other security incidents.
