What happens if you don't have MFA?

Are your users underestimating the importance of MFA and procrastinating on MFA registration? Without MFA, their Microsoft 365 account is an easy target. Hackers are constantly developing new ways to steal passwords and identity information. Every moment of delay exposes your organization's security.

Let's explore some more potential consequences:

  • Increased Vulnerability: Without MFA, Office 365 accounts and devices are more vulnerable to unapproved access. MFA acts as an additional barrier to your account and prevents Microsoft 365 security breaches.
  • Compromised User Identities: Lack of MFA can lead to compromised user identities and potential causes like insider threats and other severe security breaches within your organization.
  • Unauthorized Access to Applications: Many organizations use MFA as an initial authorization method for various applications and cloud services. Without MFA, inappropriate users can access these applications and compromise confidential data.
  • Potential Impact: The compromise of a single user's account can expose the entire Microsoft 365 tenant to huge risk. Without MFA, the whole organization's data, including customer's information, financial records and more can be stolen by a single cyberattack.

Don't wait until it's too late. Setup MFA today.

  • With AdminDroid, admins can easily find all MFA non-activated users with a comprehensive report. This report includes details like ‘User Added Time’ that helps you to identify how long users are not activated MFA for their accounts.
  • With 'Custom charts', you can easily visualize and understand the number of MFA non-activated users over time, using a wide range of visually appealing chart views.

What are the security risks of not enabling MFA in Microsoft 365?

If your organization has yet to implement MFA, it's essential to understand the common security vulnerabilities when configuring only simple and low-level authentication methods:

  • Microsoft 365 phishing: Phishing attacks are one of the most common types of cyberattacks towards Microsoft 365 accounts. Attackers send phishing emails to trick users into revealing their personal information, such as passwords and credit card numbers.
  • Password spray: Attackers attempt to gain access to Microsoft 365 by repeatedly trying a list of common passwords with various usernames.
  • Credential phishing attacks: Attackers can use copied browser cookies to access Microsoft 365 accounts when users enter their credentials on fake websites impersonated as trusted companies.
  • Man-in-the-middle(MITM) attacks: Attackers gain the power to control or alter the details sent between the two parties. They can manipulate the information shared or even inject malicious content into their Microsoft 365 communication.

These security risks should concern you, especially if your Office 365 users are without MFA enable in your organization. To stand against these serious security risks, it's strongly recommended to change the default MFA for Microsoft 365 users and configure strong MFA authentication methods like Microsoft authenticator app, biometric verification, and more in your organization.

Using AdminDroid’s ‘MFA Authentication methods’ reports section, you can get all types of authentication methods used by your Microsoft 365 users during their sign in. These reports saves your valuable time and helps you ensure that every user utilizes strong authentication methods.

  • From the MFA analysis section, you can gain complete insights into your organization’s authentication methods and statistics of successful, failed and sign-in interrupts counts.
  • Note: You can download any of the report in your desired format by clicking the download icon.

Why is adaptive MFA authentication important in Microsoft 365?

By default, per-user MFA uses basic authentication methods such as SMS (text) and call verification for initial authentication. However, these methods are more vulnerable to attacks like SIM swapping, potentially compromising your Microsoft 365 security.

Adaptive MFA is the strongest way to protect your Microsoft 365 accounts. It dynamically adjusts authentication requirements based on factors like user, role, location, etc. and uses pre-defined conditional access policies to enhance security. With adaptive MFA, you can configure multiple strong authentication methods and enforce policies based on user licenses.

Perform the below steps to configure your adaptive MFA policy,

  • Navigate to Microsoft Entra admin center.
  • Navigate to ‘Configure Multi-factor authentication’ under Setup and click on it.
  • Click on ‘Get started’ and configure your adaptive MFA policy.
  • Configure your adaptive policy with recommended authentication methods and other conditions based on your requirements.
  • Review and click ‘Save configuration’.

Admins may need to disable MFA for users in certain scenarios, especially to create break glass accounts. These accounts are backup accounts with high admin privileges that can be used to access the organization's data in critical situations, such as when all users are blocked by MFA failing or during a cyberattack.

However, disabling MFA for users in Microsoft 365 is not recommended that can lead to identity compromises. Therefore, it is crucial to closely manage MFA usage activities in your organization.

AdminDroid's alert feature helps you stay informed about specific events, making it easier to manage activities like MFA disabled for user and MFA enabled for user in your organization

  • Deploy the ‘MFA disabled users’ alert policy from the Alerts > Policy templates section in a few clicks. This policy will trigger alerts whenever MFA of a user disabled in your organization.
  • Here's a pro tip: For enhanced multi-factor authentication management utilize the alert preview console. It analyzes past events in your organization and suggests possible alerts. You can customize your alert policies with perfect threshold limits and settings to address specific security threats, like an unusual number of MFA disabling activities.

How to get a list of users with MFA disabled?

Verifying MFA status is your initial line of defense against potential threats and improves every Microsoft 365 user's security. Get a list of users without MFA status and level up your Office 365 security with prompt actions.

To check the organization’s MFA usage, identify MFA disabled users in Microsoft 365 using the following methods:

  • Microsoft 365 Admin Center - To get list of users with MFA disabled in the admin center, navigate to ‘Multifactor Authentication’ under Active users tab.
