Extending and Monitoring Microsoft Entra ID MFA

1m 27s

Extending and Monitoring Microsoft Entra ID MFA looks at how on-premises infrastructure can utilize Entra ID to provide multi-factor authentication. MFA is almost taken for granted in cloud-only scenarios and provides added security in an online world. This Lesson focuses on how existing Entra ID MFA can be integrated into an on-premises network. We start with a general overview of the external or remote user login process before moving on to a Microsoft-specific implementation. Then, we see what’s required to integrate Entra ID MFA with Active Directory authentication. 

Learning Objectives

  • Learn about the technologies involved in cloud-based MFA and on-premises Active Directory
  • Learn the process flow of multi-factor authentication with on-premises infrastructure
  • Set up the software to implement on-premises MFA

Intended Audience

  • Those that want to know how to set up Entra ID verification with Active Directory
  • Students preparing for the SC-300: Microsoft Identity and Access Administrator exam


  • Have a basic understanding of multi-factor authentication in the context of Entra ID
  • The demonstration involves setting up and configuring software on a Windows Server machine. While not essential, familiarity with the Windows Server dashboard would be helpful
