Multi-factor authentication for SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint Online
Over the past year we have seen an increase in hack attempts and many security breaches from inside and outside the organization. The standard ways of authentication are now not enough to protect content within an organization. Authentication Federation technology whether on premise or in the cloud can go a long way to removing the intrinsic connection between user validation and the application. However this technology is not enough on its own especially when we are all brining our own devices to work or working anywhere and anytime. To resolve this core issue, multi-factor authentication technology can help in securing access by requiring further user input and validation before accessing content. In this session we will look at securing SharePoint using On-Premise and Windows Azure federation services combined with multi-factor authentication services to create a powerful and secure mechanism for accessing SharePoint.
