Two-Factor Authentication Considerations for Office 365 (Technical Session)
When it comes to government IT, you can’t take chances with security. That’s why there is a growing requirement for using two forms of authentication (such as smart cards or biometrics in addition to passwords) when connecting to enterprise resources, particularly for federal agencies. Support for this requirement is an important consideration when examining your cloud options. With Office 365, you can use federated identification to implement two-factor authentication, using identities that you administer only on-premises.
