Specops secures O365 password resets with MFA
(Last updated on December 4, 2020)
Stockholm, Sweden – November 14, 2018. Specops Software announced today a new release of Specops Authentication for Office 365 (O365). The release introduces self-service password reset functionality by using the common dynamic multi-factor authentication (MFA) engine. The release also introduces Efos for SITHs cards in Sweden, fail over capability, and new languages to the user interface with Dutch, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish and Swedish.
Specops Authentication for O365 facilitates the move to O365 and secures the login experience with MFA. The solution supports more than 15 identity providers for multi-factor authentication, including out-of-the-box support for various authenticator apps, and third-party authentication services. With the new release, IT departments can use existing identity providers to protect the O365 self-service password reset process.
“O365 has become a prime target for attackers,” said Lori Österholm, CTO at Specops Software. “Securing password resets with stronger forms of authentication is essential for companies that have chosen to connect their Active Directory environment to O365.”
Specops Authentication for O365 provides dynamic MFA to secure the O365 login, along with federated single sign-on, and real-time provisioning. It is the perfect solution for any organization that wants to connect their Active Directory environment to Azure AD, while maximizing login security, without creating too much disruption for end-users.
