Par : Robert Pearman

You may be familiar with the Conditional Access policy feature in Azure AD as a means to control access to your tenant. In addition to granting or blocking access to the tenant as a whole, it is possible to restrict certain user actions. One important action you should consider controlling is from where a user can enroll in multifactor authentication (MFA).

Azure AD MFA with number matching and temporary access passes

Par : Robert Pearman

Microsoft will enable the new number matching feature by default in February 2023. Number matching for Azure AD MFA is almost the reverse of the multi-factor authentication you know. With number matching, a number is displayed to a user when they sign in, and instead of entering this number on the device, they log in to confirm the number on the MFA device. Temporary Access Pass is another feature that allows you to help end users who are unable to meet sign-in criteria.
