IT Services will be adding Duo multi-factor authentication (MFA) to Office 365 on Monday, Nov. 18, at 7:30 a.m.
On this date and time, if you have registered for Duo, you will begin receiving Duo authentication prompts when logging in to Office 365 web applications. This applies only to faculty and staff while away from campus and when accessing via a web browser.
If you have not registered, you will be presented with Duo self-registration when accessing Office 365 to gain access to O365 web applications.
Beginning on Monday, March 2, access to Office 365 will be blocked if you are not registered with Duo.
What is multi-factor authentication?
Multi-factor authentication provides a strong second layer of authentication when used in conjunction with usernames and passwords. MFA requires an additional mobile application, available for iPhone, Android and Windows smartphones. If you don’t have a smartphone, alternative options are available.
Why the change?
Phishing and other scams attempt to get credentials and use them to access university systems, putting information at risk. MFA provides an extra layer of security to make it more difficult for someone to misuse your Marquette credentials.
