Deep Dive of Microsoft-managed Conditional Access Policies in Microsoft Entra ID

This blog was originally published on the Entra ID blog on 2/6. In November 2023 at Microsoft Ignite, we announced Microsoft-managed policies and the auto-rollout of multifactor authentication-related Conditional Access policies in customer tenants. This policy targets Microsoft Entra ID P1 and P2 tenants, where security defaults aren't enabled. This policy targets licensed users with Entra ID P1 and P2, where the security defaults policy isn't enabled and there are less than 500 per-user MFA enabled enabled/enforced users. Microsoft-managed Conditional Access policies have been created in all eligible tenants in Report-only mode. These policies are suggestions from Microsoft that organizations can adapt and use for their own environment. Administrators can view and review these policies in the Conditional Access policies blade. Enable the Microsoft-managed Conditional Access policies now and/or customize the Microsoft-managed Conditional Access policies according to your organizational needs. -------------------- Read more at https://bit.ly/49v9H0q Source: Microsoft Tech Community Microsoft 365 Business Blog
