Securing SharePoint Server with Windows Azure Multi-Factor Authentication
Keywords:Multi, Factor, Authentication, SharePoint, 2013, Premise, Phone
AbstractIn today’s world, people are used to be able to connect anywhere at any time. Users can access their applications whenever they need, with any device. Stealing, phishing or key logging a password becomes easy doable for professional hackers. Many customers already use multi-factor authentication systems to protect their data and applications. However, carrying around tokens or installing software or certificates, can become a headache for both IT and users. This article talks about Windows Azure Multi-Factor Authentication – a Microsoft solution for adding a second factor of authentication using something that users nowadays already have at hand, their phone – which I checked in a SharePoint Server 2013 on premise test environment.
