Two Factor Authentication for Skype for Business
Organizations seek a Two Factor Authentication (2FA) solution while connecting mobile devices to the Skype for Business server for two main reasons:
- To prevent workers from connecting unauthorized devices which carry their corporate credentials. This is required to prevent workers from sharing Skype for Business’ resources with others such as family members or friends, and to ensure that only devices which are approved by the organization are connected. By matching the device and user, the organization can limit users to using only corporate devices or specific devices that meet the company’s security requirements.
- Avoid connection to Skype for Business servers by hackers and other unauthorized users who obtained access to the credentials of the Active Directory (AD).
