Your email account and the information within it can be worth thousands of dollars, and remote access to it is usually available to hackers from China or Russia. All that stands between them and your email content and identity is one password. And passwords do get compromised. We have seen companies lose tens of thousands of dollars to bad actors who got their hands on that password.

Earlier last year, I wrote a blog post the importance of multi-factor authentication (MFA). In today’s world, even strong passwords aren’t enough for protecting most sensitive information. Adding a second layer of protection, a.k.a. multi-factor authentication (MFA) will help keep you and your organization more secure.

Office 365 offers an easy and  relatively inexpensive way to add multi-factor authentication to help provide the extra security and is managed from the Office 365 admin center. In my professional opinion, MFA is a must have for Office 365 protection. It will make your corporate email considerably more secure and less vulnerable to attack. 

If you have questions regarding what MFA solution would be right for your business, the best course of action is to consult with your IT service provider or IT department to find a solution that will work with all your software and security systems that support MFA.
