With Office 365 Multi Factor Authentication, you can implement security measures beyond your password to provide that extra level of defense.

If you are looking for a great tool to protect your data, Office 365 Business allows the additional layer of security with its multi factor authentication (MFA), also known as two factor authentication.

With over 200 million monthly active users, Office 365 has become a hugely popular Cloud based application for businesses.  However as a result of its popularity, it has also become a prime target for cyber hackers looking for security weaknesses.

The importance of protecting data stored in Office 365 is vital.  With login credentials compromised daily, it is important to protect your business data. Office 365 multi factor authentication will significantly mitigate the risk of a cyber security attack.  However, as most cyber attacks occur due to human error, it is important to adopt additional methods.  This includes educating employees to recognise attacks and report them.

How The Multi-Factor Authentication Works?

With Office 365 two factor authentication, it is a simple yet effective process.

  1. Sign in to Office 365 using your login credentials and password.
  2. After you enter your password, you’ll be sent a code to your phone (or to whatever device/app you specified when you set up 2-step verification).
  3. When you receive the 6-digit code, enter it in the box and then choose Sign in.

To fast track the verification method, use the Microsoft Authenticator app on your smartphone for 1-click verification!
