Re: Veeam for Office 365 and Two Factor?

I agree from a roaming user perspectiv, but I presume most O365 installation would run on a static wan ip-adress so I don't see any enhanced security by using modern authentication as long as our firewalls only allow traffic from the Ofifice 365 official Wan ip adresses for retreiving the data.

I see your 2 cent and will not raise :)

Good discussion and good topic though!

Frank,

allowing your firewalls to only connect to the official office 365 wan ip doesn't prevent attackers from brute-forcing passwords and trying them out on their side. That's the real reason why you'd use 2FA/MFA.
