Last week, Alex Simons (Director of PM) from the Microsoft Identity Division team did an great Azure Active Directory – MFA feature announcement on Twitter.

The big news that came out was that Azure MFA won’t requires an fully on-premises MFA server installation anymore, what is great news! Microsoft says that this new feature was one of the top requests that they received from many customers, what improves that Microsoft definitely listens to their customers these days!

The new feature will give us more flexibility, and makes it easier to perform MFA implementations at the customer site with an minimum of impact in resources! The feature is also included in the MFA user license, so when you already have these AD Premium, MFA single or EMS license activated on your tenant, then u can use this feature without making extra costs.

Nowadays more and more companies are migration their services to Office365, and most of them already uses Azure MFA for securing their SharePoint, Exchange Online or OneDrive services. What makes it for most users a bit more complicated and confusing, when users must use different, physical or software token methods to provide external access, for other services like Citrix remote access. This will now be over, after reading this article you will be able to configure an MFA RADIUS server for your NetScaler device, in just few simple configuration steps!
