Overall Satisfaction with Azure Multi-Factor Authentication

Azure Multi-Factor Authentication is being used for custom applications and as a way to help secure them. Security is in the forefront of most applications that are external or user facing. Multi-factor authentication is widely considered a very strong standard to secure an application and verify the identity of a user. Azure Multi-Factor Authentication makes this easy to implement and manage.
  • Ease of use
  • Interoperability
  • Industry standard
  • It can be difficult to work with when deviating off the standard use cases
  • Overall, it's a really good value compared to building a custom solution that you have to maintain
  • AWS Multi-Factor Authentication
Honestly, they are very similar as is much of their offerings. It really comes down to which ecosystem are you already invested in? It doesn't make a lot of sense to try and interop with every cloud vendor - pick one and use them. While there used to be substantial differences in the cloud platforms, they are at basic parity now.
If your solution falls within their standard use case or you have Office 365 - then it makes total sense. If you need a lot of customization or have a really specific business process that causes you to deviate from the standard flow it usually makes more sense to create a custom solution.
