More security for your data and applications—without added hassles for your customers

Customers

Get more security with fewer hoops

Azure Multi-Factor Authentication helps safeguard access to data and applications and helps to meet customer demand for a simple sign-in process. Get strong authentication with a range of easy verification options—phone call, text message or mobile app notification—and allow customers to choose the method they prefer.

Mitigate threats with real-time monitoring and alerts

Multi-Factor Authentication helps protect your business with security monitoring and machine-learning-based reports that identify inconsistent sign-in patterns. To help mitigate potential threats, real-time alerts notify your IT department of suspicious account credentials.

Deploy on-premises or on Azure

Use Multi-Factor Authentication Server on your premises to help secure VPNs, Active Directory Federation Services, IIS web applications, Remote Desktop and other remote access applications using RADIUS and LDAP authentication. Add an extra verification step to your cloud-based applications and services by turning on Multi-Factor Authentication in Azure Active Directory.

Use with Office 365, Salesforce and more

Multi-Factor Authentication for Office 365 helps secure access to Office 365 applications at no additional cost. Multi-Factor Authentication is also available with Azure Active Directory Premium and thousands of software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications, including Salesforce, Dropbox and other popular services.

Add protection for Azure administrator accounts

Multi-Factor Authentication adds a layer of security to your Azure administrator account at no additional cost. When it is turned on, you need to confirm your identity to spin up a virtual machine, manage storage or use other Azure services.

Build it into your applications

Use the SDK and your application's existing customer database, to integrate Multi-Factor Authentication into your application’s sign-in or transaction processes.
