Azure Multi-factor Authentication allows you to protect your applications and systems by adding a second factor of authentication to logins. This course will teach you how to integrate Azure MFA with on-premises and cloud-based systems.
Username and password authentication is susceptible to many forms of attacks, and multi-factor authentication offers a way to mitigate this threat. Azure multi-factor authentication is a global service that allows you to add a second factor of authentication to your on-premises and cloud based systems using a hardware device already in the hands of your users and customers - their mobile phone. In this course, Implementing and Managing Azure Multi-factor Authentication, you'll learn how to configure Azure MFA in the cloud and on-premises. First you'll learn the self-service options available to users and business administrators, and how to integrate Azure MFA with a variety of technologies and applications. Next, you'll explore the configuration options to integrate Azure MFA with your existing systems. Finally, you'll learn how developers can code against the APIs for even deeper integration. By the end of this course, youâ€™ll know how to deploy, configure, and monitor Azure MFA, in the cloud and on-premises.

Course Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Neil Morrissey, and welcome to my course Implementing and Managing Azure Multi-factor Authentication. I'm a senior IT architect with over 13 years experience developing solutions using Microsoft technologies. We've all seen stories in the news about systems getting compromised and data being stolen. A major study in 2016 found that 63% of confirmed data breaches involved weak, default, or stolen passwords. We need a better way to prove that a user is who they say they are before allowing them access to our applications and systems. In this course we're going to go in depth on Microsoft's global multi-factor authentication service that allows you to better verify a user's identity and protect your systems with an additional layer of authentication that uses hardware devices that are already in the hands of your customers and users, their mobile phone. You'll learn all the different ways to protect on-premises and cloud-based systems with Azure MFA. You'll understand the self-service options available to users and business administrators, so increasing security doesn't have to come with an administrative burden. And we'll go in depth on the configuration options to integrat Azure MFA with your existing systems, as well as how developers can code against the APIs for even deeper integration. By the end of this course you'll know how to deploy, configure, and monitor Azure MFA in the cloud and on-premises. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to better protect your users and applications in this Pluralsight course on Implementing and Managing Azure Multi-factor Authentication.
