We’re constantly improving the security of Office 365 products and services. Modern Authentication and Conditional Access are two of the best ways of ensuring that your clients can take advantage of authentication features like multi-factor authentication (MFA), third-party SAML identity providers, and are implementing automated access control decisions for accessing your cloud apps based on conditions. Firstly, here’s some news about Modern Authentication. As you might already know, all new Office 365 tenants created on or after August 1, 2017 have Modern Authentication enabled by default in Exchange Online for all clients. Today, we’re announcing that Modern Authentication will soon be enabled for the Windows Outlook client and Skype for Business client in all managed (non-federated) tenants that were created before to August 1, 2017. Those tenants already have Modern Authentication enabled for Outlook mobile, Outlook for Mac and Outlook on the Web, so there are no changes to any of those clients.
