Microsoft Adds Multi-Factor Authentication to Windows Azure

Microsoft has announced the general availability of Windows Azure Multi-Factor Authentication.  According to Microsoft, Multi-Factor Authentication quickly enables an additional layer of security for users signing in from around the globe.  In addition to a username and password, users may authenticate via an application on their mobile device, automated voice call, or text message with a passcode.

Azure Multi-Factor Authentication can be used with many types of applications that require additional security, including 1) On-Premise VPNs, 2) Web Applications, 3) Cloud and SaaS services and applications, and 4) Custom Applications. 

Windows Azure Multi-Factor Authentication offers two pricing options: $2 per user per month or $2 for 10 authentications. Visit the pricing page to learn more.

For details on enabling Windows Azure Multi-Factor Authentication, please visit Scott Guthrie’s blog and check out the below video.
