"The only MFA Solution we even considered after reviewing our options."

What do you like best?

Microsoft offers one of the most reliable and cost effective MFA solutions we could find. You have the ability to choose txt message, phone call or smart phone app for approving log ins. There is even an included self service portal for users to modify their own options.

Payment options are nice, you can buy blocks of users or Pay-as-You-Go based on the number of active users that month.

What do you dislike?

The initial deployment was confusing, the documentation was difficult to find and dispersed across several sites. We didn't receive much support during the deployment.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We could not find another solution that met our needs. It was surprising how few companies offered anything but a cloud hosted txt message only MFA solution.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using the Azure MFA we are able to properly lock down our user's VPN connection. We have even implemented it on admin authentications to our security appliances.

"The Multi-Factor app is better than receiving call/text for 2 factor codes"

What do you like best?

The service is very reliable, and the multi-factor app with push notifications makes the login process so much smoother. The app also accepts fingerprints instead of a numeric code (touch id on iPhone, fingerprints on Android), so that your 2 factor request is approved at the touch of your thumb. No punching numbers anymore!

What do you dislike?

You have to open the app manually if the push notification disappears. There can be better integration with the mobile products, like opening the app automatically if the notification appears.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do it. It's the best in the industry for 2-factor auth.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Better security for all of your company login websites. This has made internal resources very secure, even if a user's password is compromised, a login cannot be forged without 2-factor.

What Multi-Factor Authentication solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"MFA User"

What do you like best?

Easy to use, generally works well. We have it implemented across many applications within our company.

What do you dislike?

Requires a decent cell phone reception, which is not always available. I work in a basement and sometimes have to step outside to receive the necessary code. But if you don't input the code within a certain amount of time, you have to receive a new code.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Security is paramount for our company as we deal with confidential and client information. Being also to enhance our security

"A pretty solid feature in Azure that makes its security top-tier in terms of cloud hosting"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that hooking up the two factor authentication is really quick and that you can add your alternate email or even phone number in a few simple steps.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that there isn't an option yet to add an alternative email as another layer of security, since this should be a fundamental tier of authentication.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is recommended for web app developers who wish to have a fairly reliable cloud hosting service. However, AWS may be more suitable for ones who are familiar with that stack.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am building a photo sharing website and currently developing a mobile app for photo sharing as well. Am experimenting with Azure for cloud hosting and deploying my web application.

"Azure MFA with Office 365"

What do you like best?

I like the ability to implement MFA with Office 365. This empowers us to provide a second login to our 365 services using a number of different options such as SMS, phone call or the app. This give us confidence around the security of our data in Office 365

What do you dislike?

the setup of MFA can be challenging depending on the internal setup. THe white listing of IPs help to ensure users on-premise arent prompted for the MFA.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Setup a trial tenant before implementing this in production. This will allow you to test all features in a controlled environment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are sloving the security issue with accessing our corporate data when away from the office. The MFA provides our security team the reasurance that they need.

"Azure Multi-Factor"

What do you like best?

System is awesome that provides either text message phone call or app. It integrates with our AD to provide authentication for multiple apps

What do you dislike?

Just a wish that I could force AD authentication to use multi factor

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want something that is simple to use and gets the job done then this is the product for you. It is easy to set up and authenticate. We never have problems of it failing to do its job properly. The largest time spent was training users and getting them to active their mobile phones

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Security audits and applications that require two factor authentication

"My Microsoft Azure Multi-Factor Authentication "

What do you like best?

I found it very easy to set up and administer. One think I liked was the ease of use when having to deactivate a user.

What do you dislike?

The app tokens were a big pain. We use Skype in our environment and having to create app tokens for Skype and other apps was a nightmare in our environment

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look out for the App tokens, they will look more users our then you realize. Also MFA does not work with cloud power-shell.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We wanted increased security against threats and un-authorized log in attempts

"Saves me from spooky "

What do you like best?

The authentication process on Microsoft Azure takes security to a level most would dream of. If I wasn't using this level of security I would be spooked out of work.

What do you dislike?

What is there to dislike about security? other than the amount of memory it uses, there isn't much to complain about after it's done doing it's job.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It keeps our network safe and secure. Without this authentication we could have multiple breaches a day.
