Azure Multi-Factor Authentication
More security for your data and applications—without added hassles for your customers
Azure Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is Microsoft’s two-step verification solution. Azure MFA helps safeguard access to data and applications while meeting user demand for a simple sign-in process. It delivers strong authentication via a range of verification methods, including phone call, text message, or mobile app verification.
