Multi Factor Authentication (MFA)

The Florida Department of Health is a user of Microsoft’s Office365 line of products and Azure Active Directory (AD) Premium 2. Multi-factor Authentication is built into Microsoft Office365 and Azure AD.

  • Azure AD Premium P1 provides features such as identity management, access management, administration of dynamic groups, and Microsoft Identity Manager.
  • Azure AD Premium P2 includes all of the features of Azure AD Premium P1 – plus a few more useful capabilities, such as Identity Protection and Privileged Identity Management (PIM).

Accessing the EHR application from outside of the FDOH network will initiate MFA authentication. If the multi-factor authentication request is not approved, access to the network is denied. FDOH does not allow variation among user roles for authentication purposes.
