One of my biggest complaints about using Azure AD P1 to issue Azure MFA challenges on a traditional RDS deployment via RADIUS authentication is that it issues an MFA challenge on every login. That’s almost as frustrating as trying to understand Microsoft Licensing.
Fortunately, securing Windows Virtual Desktop in Azure with Conditional Access and MFA is a breeze and dramatically improves the user experience!
Here are a few prerequisites that you’ll need already configured in your lab:
When you integrate any application with Azure SSO as either a SAML 2.0 endpoint or Enterprise Application, it’s simple to create a conditional access policy to enforce MFA challenges for that application.
The new Windows Virtual Desktop service delivers exactly the multifactor authentication experience that I want to deliver to all our clients at Infused Innovations. I can allow users to bypass MFA when they’re accessing corporate resources in an approved environment; otherwise require an MFA challenge when they’re not.
It takes less than 15 minutes to secure Windows Virtual Desktop in Azure with Conditional Access compared to at least two hours to configure the Azure MFA extension with NPS to protect a traditional RDS deployment. (That time estimate is assuming you’ve deployed RDS with NPS before.) That is extraordinary value with minimal effort!
The improvements that Microsoft continues to build into their cloud offerings are delivering enterprise-class security and features at values that any SMB can afford. Checkout our WVD pricing guide for additional details on the hidden costs of Windows Virtual Desktop.
