Multi-Factor Authentication (Azure/Safenet)
#1
I noticed a few boards have the multi-factor authentication option (I haven't used it with the boards yet) and a few companies I consult with have upgraded or will upgrade too...  Anyways, there are a few options to choose from:  Safenet Mobile Pass+, Microsoft Authenticator that uses Azure, RSA Token, etc.

Anyone have a recommendation over the other and reasons why you choose that?  I am leaning towards MFA as that app just requires you to approve your logon by tapping approve.  The Safenet app - MobilePass requires you to punch in a pin+passcode.   And then there are the hardware RSA tokens that require you to carry an extra item around.... decisions decisions.

How valuable is the data you are protecting? How likely are you to get targeted?

As an admin I supported an MFA with a Citrix Gateway. I preferred the soft tokens because the hardware tokens were a pain. Getting lost, breaking, randomly stop working, etc. As a user, I choose the SMS options because I don't have to deal with an app and always have my phone with me.
