While closing up on one of my projects we started a proof of concept with two factor authentication based on Microsoft Azure MFA. Azure Multi-Factor Authentication is the service that requires users to also verify sign-ins by using a mobile app, phone call, or text message. You can use it together with Azure AD or together with custom applications and directories by using the SDK. You can also use it together with on-premises applications by using Multi-Factor Authentication Server.
