Azure Multi-Factor Authentication helps safeguard access to data and applications while meeting user demand for a simple sign-on process. It delivers strong authentication via a range of easy verification options – phone call, text message, or mobile app notification and one-time passwords – allowing users to choose the method they prefer. Azure Multi-Factor Authentication is available as a stand-alone service with per-user and per-authentication billing options, or bundled with Azure Active Directory Premium, Enterprise Mobility Suite, and Enterprise Cloud Suite.
It can be used both on-premises and in the cloud to add security for:
- accessing Microsoft online services,
- Azure Active Directory-connected SaaS applications,
- line of business applications,
- and remote access applications.
