Cybersecurity can be overwhelming, but it’s crucial to keep your data and systems safe. While your IT provider handles most of it, Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a crucial layer that requires user participation. Our goal is to minimize the impact of any cybersecurity breach on our clients, and MFA is an effective way to achieve this.

Are you familiar with  MFA and its importance for your Microsoft 365 account? With more data ending up on the dark web and accessible to bad actors, MFA has become a necessary cybersecurity layer for your accounts.  

MFA is a second form of authentication, in addition to your password, to log in to your account. And while it may seem like an added hassle, we will make it super easy for you. You can choose from multiple options such as using an authenticator app, receiving text codes to your phone, calling your phone, or using a USB key.  

We recommend using the authenticator app, as a quick and efficient process. You can pair your mobile device with your computer effortlessly with the free app. Download the app on your iPhone or Android phone, add an account, and scan the QR code displayed on your computer screen.

Once you set up your preferred method, you’ll be prompted every time you log in to your Microsoft 365 account on a new device. But don’t worry, your primary device will be remembered so you won’t be prompted every single time.  

According to Microsoft, 99.9% of account compromise attacks can be prevented with MFA enabled. So, if you haven’t set up MFA yet, it’s time to take action.  

Microsoft is now requiring MFA for all accounts, so it’s better to be ahead of the game and start today. If you need help getting started with MFA for your business, just contact us and we’ll guide you through the process.
