Specops improves MFA for remote workers with Trusted Network Location

April 30, 2020 – With remote work becoming mainstream, it is more important than ever for IT departments to ensure that users are who they say they are. The new Trusted Network Location setting in the Specops MFA platform allows organizations to further secure user access for password resets, encryption key recoveries, and the Microsoft 365 login.

IT administrators can use the Trusted Network Location feature to enforce captcha, or additional authentication methods for users when accessing the platform from non-trusted locations.

“This is the second feature that we have released in 2020 that can be used to secure access for a remote workforce,” said Lori Osterholm, CTO at Specops Software. “In January, we added geo-blocking for high-risk IP addresses and locations. Now, we are enabling administrators to designate IP ranges as trusted networks.”

The Specops MFA platform automates user enrollments for self-service password resets and encryption key recoveries. The platform can also be used to secure the Microsoft 365 login with additional authentication methods such as Duo Security, Okta, and more.
