It's not something I have done but in my previous job some colleagues integrated Azure MFA with a Cisco VPN and also an RDS Gateway using the NPS extension using radius:


"The Network Policy Server (NPS) extension for Azure MFA adds cloud-based MFA capabilities to your authentication infrastructure using your existing servers."


It's an involved configuration but I see Palo Alto support any MFA platform that can use radius, so it could be worth investigating:


There used to be an Azure MFA Server you could install to integrate on-premise systems but that isn't supported for new installations.
