This series outlines the most fundamental steps you can take with your investment in Microsoft 365 security solutions. We will provide advice on activities such as setting up identity management through active directory, malware protection, and more. In this post, we explain how to enable single sign-on (SSO) in Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) to manage authentication across devices, cloud apps, and on-premises apps, and then how to set up Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to authenticate user sign-ins through a mobile app, phone call, or SMS.

 

Balancing employee productivity needs with enterprise security begins with protecting identities. Gone are the days when users accessed corporate resources behind a firewall using corporate-issued devices. Your employees and partners use multiple devices and apps for work. They share documents with other users via cloud productivity apps and email, and they switch between personal and work-related apps and devices throughout the day. This has created a world of opportunity for sophisticated cybercriminals.
