I hope you enjoyed learning about Managing Microsoft 365 Access and Authentication. Let's review what you've learned. In this course, you learned about topics such as designing authentication methods and how to configure multi-factor authentication. You also learned about self-service password reset, and how to enable it in an Azure subscription. Next, you learned about authentication monitoring, how to access sign-in reports in the Azure AD portal, and how to use those reports to monitor Azure Active Directory. Later in the course, you learned how to implement multi-factor authentication, how to manage multifactor authentication for end users, and how to use reports to monitor Azure multi-factor authentication. After learning about multi-factor authentication, you learned how to configure application access in Azure Active Directory, and how to configure application registration in Azure AD. You also learned how to configure Azure AD application proxy. Rounding out the course, you learned about Azure Active Directory B2B and how to add guest users to Azure AD, using the Azure portal.
