Why engage GreenLoop to assist with your Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) implementation project, instead of doing it yourself? It’s true that these days, implementing basic MFA in Office 365 isn’t that difficult, and many companies have a power user or two that feel able to enable this for your organization with much lower costs than GreenLoop’s implementation fee.
Ultimately, having basic MFA is absolutely better than none at all, so if that’s what you can afford, great! However, most SMB leaders would benefit by considering these questions before attempting to self-implement 365 MFA in your organization:
- Are you sure you’re getting everything Microsoft has to offer? The latest Microsoft MFA functionality to defend against the latest threats and make the process as simple as possible for end-users is not generally enabled or enforced by default.
- Are you securing your ongoing investment? Many implementations leave gaping security holes: for instance, by failing to ensure it’s enforced on an ongoing basis, which can mean future security lapses in the future as staff turnover or MFA gets turned off and never turned back on. Likewise, disabling legacy protocols that circumvent MFA requires an advanced understanding of the factors in play in order to avoid service disruptions.
- Are you confident the implementation will go smoothly? Users with legacy applications or who have never used MFA before often have a steep learning curve getting these to work correctly, and may need individualized attention from an experienced technician. In addition, many organizations struggle to balance the disruption of enforcing MFA for all users at once vs. the hassle and delay of coordinating with each individual user or waiting on them to self-complete the instructions.
GreenLoop is glad to set up a time to discuss your MFA requirements and how we can leverage our years of experience over thousands of 365 user enablements to best secure your organization.
Below is an overview of additional enhancements GreenLoop offers as part of our standard Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) enforcement project. Except where noted, these are included by default with every 365 MFA Implementation Project.
