Azure MFA

Azure MFA hard token and multi-device support

Towards the end of 2018 Microsoft announced that Azure MFA (the cloud offering) would support both hard tokens and up to 5 devices per user. Some enterprises still like hard tokens, these can be especially useful to support break-glass account types, were you can store the token in a secure physical location. Supporting multiple tokens can help ensure the account doesn’t get locked if the token gets damaged, though it does put an emphasis on keeping the tokens secure.
