Microsoft cloud identity app uses GPS

May 2021 | No Comment

Microsoft has added identity and access management capabilities employing GPS among other factors to its Azure Active Directory, a cloud identity solution, to counter sophisticated hacking techniques. Two-factor authentication is no longer sufficient to defend against malicious entry. The GPS-based named locations and filters look at a range of signals for authorized user access.

The process is explained in an online company document, “Using the location condition in a Conditional Access policy.”

Developers’ instructions to use the feature can be read at Conditional Access GPS-based named locations now in public preview.
