Multifactor Authentication and secure RDP access to servers

Occasional Contributor

Hello Community!


A question as we are rolling-out Azure MFA at one organization in order to enhance security, due to compliance a second factor authentication is required for administrators connecting via RDP to some specific servers.

I know that is possible to integrate Azure MFA with a Remote Desktop Gateway Infrastructure but I was wondering if it is possible to integrate Azure MFA to request a second authentication factor while connecting directly to servers for administration purposes using RDP without a third party solution or if there are plans to bring this feature in the future.

Any comment or similar experience is welcome!

Thanks in advance

Thanks Vasil

Definitely sounds like a comprehensive solution in this case, I'll just have to double check the upgrade plan to W10 as a big amount of workstations are still running Windows 7.


Best regards.
