In case you missed it, we invite you to check out a recent webinar in which we shared how to use automation to easily implement MFA and access protection in M365 across all your customers. Checkout the Top 5 Q&A questions.

Q1: What role does Azure Active Directory (AAD) play in automating MFA and access protection in Microsoft 365? How can automation be utilized to manage AAD user roles and permissions effectively?

A: AAD is going to play a major role in Security Manager’s approach to automating MFA.  Traditional MFA, Security Defaults, and Conditional Access Policies are the main ways that Microsoft allows users to enforce MFA and each of these mechanisms is dependent on AAD.  Security Manager has a variety of solutions to automate the configuration of MFA using any of those mechanisms.

Q2: Whats an example of MFA configured but incorrect that would be flagged in access management?

A: When MFA is configured but contains issues (identified by a yellow icon on the access management report), it is an indication that MFA is not configured as recommended. One example is when a Microsoft 365 tenant has the Azure AD Premium license and they configured MFA via Security Defaults. The recommended method of configuration is via Conditional Access Policies instead of Security Defaults.

Another example is when MFA is configured, but not for all Cloud Applications as recommended by Microsoft.”

Q3: How can the implementation of automated multifactor authentication (MFA) and access protection in Microsoft 365 (M365) enhance security measures while minimizing disruption for end-users?

A: Security Manager has a number of different solutions for automating MFA and Access Controls.  As recommendations, they’re also categorized by their relative disruption to users.  Automating MFA controls in conjunction with customer communication can provide a seamless experience for end users.

Q4: For scripting- is there a way to target specific usernames across all tenants?

A: Yes! While the out-of-the-box solutions don’t address this specific function, Security Manager is highly customizable and a solution could be created which sought out common usernames.

Q5: Is there a report which analyzes the current license status?

A: Yes! Security Manager has a couple of licensing reports and users in our community forum have also created one.
