Microsoft MVP Sander Berkouwer, writing on The Things That Are Better Left Unspoken, examined the release of version of Azure Multi-Factor Authentication Server. Version 8.0.4 was released back in February, and the August update adds on-prem, IIS, ADFS and RADIUS authentication options.

Berkouwer noted a few key features in the new version.

This blocks malicious scripts from running in browsers visiting ADFS infrastructure.
