Azure Active Directory relies on MFA...
Businesses that used to manage their user accounts within their internal firewalls, in an attempt to keep attackers out, are usually not too sensitive about enforcing secure password policies. So, when they migrate to Azure AD, it infers that all user accounts with weak password policies are no longer behind a firewall but exposed from anywhere on the Internet, which dramatically increase the risk of cyber criminality.
To mitigate the risk, admins have the options to enable multi-factor authentication (MFA) for all users in Azure to access data in the Azure Active Directory.
... But MFA is not all that!
There are well over a dozen ways to hack MFA solutions. Every particular type of MFA solution is susceptible to multiple hacking methods. Of course, there are some MFA methods that are more resilient to attacks than others. But the more resilient an MFA solution is the harder it is for the end-user to utilize.
An example of MFA vulnerability? Copying fingerprints and directly access secret keys on a key fob using an electron microscope.

Our private Blockchain-based data storage architecture promotes trust between your organization and your employees for all accesses to your systems and internal applications.
Leveraging the BlockID Private Blockchain Ecosystem entails storing employees' biometric information in a virtually incorruptible system to ensure they are who they say they are at all times throughout the process. Employees’ data stored in our distributed ledger aren’t subjected to data breaches.
The immutability of a distributed ledger is leveraged to record service provider-customer interactions. The document can never be modified, leaving an auditing trail, and therefore creating trust between all parties involved.
