MFA / 2 step verification for VM's in Azure

Jeff Miner 81 Reputation points

Is it possible to easily implement MFA/ two step verification in Azure for VMs (servers)? I know it's quite easy with the virtual desktop environment (VDI) but can't find much on VMs.

New to Azure so just getting my feet wet.

    Yes it is possible you will need to configure Conditional Access policies to require multifactor authentication (MFA) and other signals, such as user sign-in risk, before you can RDP into Windows VMs.

    Please check the pre-reqs and detailed article on this process. howto-vm-sign-in-azure-ad-windows
