Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) provides an additional layer of security to Office 365 by requiring a second authentication method such as a text or phone call. Following the initial verification, users may be prompted when MFA identifies a high-risk activity such as: a new device, unfamiliar IP address, impossible travel, or compromised credentials.
Email attacks are becoming more prevalent and disruptive to UCCS. As result, OIT is implementing MFA which will work to help protect users from unauthorized access using compromised credentials.
