Unlocking the Value of Teams | A Closer Look at Multi-Factor Authentiction

April 8, 2020

Earlier this week we shared that Adoption and Change Management and Network are  critical to getting started with Teams, but have you thought about Multi-Factor Authentication?

Our third Success Criteria is Multi Factor Authentication, or simply known as MFA.

MFA is an authentication method in which a computer user is granted access only after successfully presenting two or more pieces of evidence to an authentication mechanism.

Hmmm, are you scratching your head wondering what these authenticators could be. They’re actually quite simple and interestingly, all unique to you.  They’re something you know (knowledge), something you have (possession) and something you are (inherence).

For knowledge, think of a cool password or your mom’s birthday. Your Smartphone or USB token could be your possession authenticator and your thumbprint or retina scan would qualify as an inherence authenticator.

Together, these make for some pretty great security measures, and with Teams having so much goodness is one place, you want to make sure you have every protection in place. On the one hand, you want maximum productivity and collaboration, while on the other, you still want to meet your Company’s requirements for security.
