Azure Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) Overview

2018 March 19

by admin

Security breaches are very common these days. Gone are the days when just a simple username/password was sufficient for data security. Password is just one-factor authentication. Simply relying on passwords to secure your data is equal to writing physical letters in the era of emails.

Data is crucial which is very vulnerable to outside attacks. That is why, we need something more than just passwords to secure the systems.

The Multi-Factor Authentication, simply called as MFA, is a multi-step verification method which requires more than one authentication method. The extra layers of security are added to your online interactions (signups and transactions), which helps in keeping your account safe.

Passwords aren’t just enough

In a complex digital world, you need to secure your data against hackers and potential threats. As mentioned earlier, passwords can be easily broken by various means. There are several possibilities how your security can be broken – robotic password generators, social hacking, ransomware trying to barge in, or some ex-employee misusing his past company credentials. These are just a few examples, but there are many other scenarios where your security can be very fragile.

The bottom line is – you simply just can’t rely on passwords.

If you are using multiple devices, and if you don’t know whether they are legitimate logins (your own verified users or unknown sources trying to break into your password-protected site), your data security stands on thin waters.

Why MFA be used at all?

MFA is quite a popular method of authentication in recent years. You already have been using two-factor authentication in your day-to-day activities. For instance, while withdrawing cash from ATM (Hardware token: Debit Card + Password) or login for internet banking (One Time Password + Regular Password).

With two-factor authentication, even if somebody knows your password, they would still need access to second-factor resources like your mobile, email, or even a thumbprint. So, if a hacker wants to steal your data, he will need to break your thumb print impressions too (if biometrics is selected), in addition to your password.

It helps you in a secure access of your websites, electronic carts, backends, or any applications by adding more levels to access your crucial data. One of the benefits with MFA is that you allow access to only those users who are permitted by you.

What is Multi-Factor Authentication on Azure?

Well, Azure is Microsoft’s cloud offering which is arguably considered safer than its competitors. Apart from its obvious benefits of high redundancy, agility, and scalability, it allows a robust MFA feature that adds many layers to your secure authentication.

Azure MFA protects any unauthorized access to data, taking away the apprehensions of security in cloud-based systems

Benefits of MFA in Azure

  • Scalability: Integrates with your on-premise Active Directory and custom apps with the power of cloud. Even your high-volume, mission critical scenarios can be protected with MFA.
  • Reliability: Azure MFA is highly reliable as it is available 99.9% of the time.
  • Single sign-in made easy: There is only one-time username and password. You don’t need to remember passwords time and again.
  • Highest standards: Data is always protected due to highest level of authentication standards.

What are the different MFA methods?

Azure MFA is fairly simple, scalable and a reliable option that offers extra blankets of security to protect the user accounts. It can be secured with two or more than the following elements:

Something you know:

  • Passwords
    The password is the first level security for authentic access by a user. Along with the combination of username, security systems are built around this preliminary method. This qualifies something as what the user can know while securing its account.
  • Security Questions
    The users are given pre-defined security questions that they need to answer to proceed for a sign-in. This is generally asked during passwords recovery. This added security question helps alleviate the risk of illegal access to your information.

Something you have

  • Mobile Device
    This can be done either via text message, phone call or an app notification. The PIN is sent to the mobile when the user selects any of the ways. The log-in will be successful only when the user enters the correct verification number received on the mobile device.
  • Hardware Tokens
    This is in form of a physical device that can be carried by the user for authentication purposes. The examples of hardware tokens can be RFID-enabled chips, smart cards, USB devices, key fobs, or any custom-built hardware for authentication purposes.
  • Software Tokens
    These are basically software applications that generate one-time password required for authentication. Generally, asks a pop-up notification on smartphone to allow authentication. An authentication through email or an app notification can be classified under this category.

Something you are

  • Biometrics
    Biometrics is also one way to secure the authentication. It allows access only after the correct biometrics have been provided which includes scanning of thumbprints, retina, or face. It requires your physical presence as it scans your imprints of your thumbs, eyes or face.

Somewhere you are

  • GPS
    GPS can be used for location-based contextual authentications to verify the user identity. It includes geolocation, IP location, mobile location, time of the day to assure the user validation.

How do you use an MFA in Azure?

Using Multi-Factor Authentication with Azure is really a vast topic, which we will discuss in brief in our later articles. Before anything else, you must answer this question before using Multi-Factor Authentication: What needs to be secure?

Are you securing an application? Are you securing the complete website or just few parts of it? Or anything else?

To use MFA in Azure, you must clearly know what you are trying to secure. It can be anything that resides in the Microsoft Cloud or runs through Microsoft Cloud – for example Office 365 and other applications, website, electronic cart, credentials page, payment gateway, or simply anything for that matter.

For other applications that are running outside the Microsoft Cloud properties, the implementation is done on an MFA Server platform. There are significant differences between Azure MFA and MFA server in capabilities and suitability. Depending on what needs to be secure, you may need an MFA solution that suits your requirement.

Summing up

The possibilities for using MFA are endless. Though it is simple and easy to use, there are many nuances to it which needs to be monitored on a regular basis. The overwhelming number of choices in MFA make it complex. If you want to the complete benefits of MFA to rock-guard your security, you might want to do it in correct way. To do it right, an expert guidance is required. At least for the first time.

Our expert team at Apps4Rent can guide you in securing your applications and data through MFA.

We’ve just scratched the surface on Azure MFA. There are many other nuances of it that include user location, features, licenses. We’ll discuss those topics in our forthcoming articles.

If Cloud-Based Systems Scare You, This Should Calm You Down

2018 March 7

by admin

It is no surprise when we say that cloud is the future of computing. Of all the computing that happens currently, 21 percent takes place in the cloud. Though there are decent-sized players in the industry, the cloud market is largely under-tapped and has a huge potential for growth. By 2021, it is expected that 44 percent of all computing will be based on cloud.

With enterprise cloud plans getting better each day, the companies aren’t afraid to make significant investments in the cloud-based off-premise infrastructure. According to a report, majority of businesses will be operating from cloud by 2020. The businesses that have shied away from cloud will find it tough to catch up with their cloud-savvy competitors. As a result, many companies are moving to cloud from their local IT environments. Though they aren’t abandoning the on-premise infrastructure completely, many of them are testing the hybrid cloud model. The hybrid version provides the flexibility to control the specific functionalities, along with full-access control to choose what applications can move between a cloud and their on-premise data centers.

The innovative technologies like blockchain, Internet-of-Things (IoT), Virtual Reality (VR) etc. are becoming a commonplace now. Subsequently, the need for cloud-based solutions is going to explode in the future.

There is already a lot of growth in cloud-based services for devices with some of the biggest players like Microsoft, Google, and Amazon already has launched a few purpose-built clouds. To support this growth, there will be a rise in computing and storage devices, along with advancements in cellular communication networks.

The cloud-based systems have already become ubiquitous in legislative and administrative policies. Recently, FBI sent a formal request to move all its data to cloud in lieu with the US CIO ‘Cloud First’ policy. Also, Australian Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) has issued fresh guidelines, defining the use of digital infrastructure by government agencies that replaces its existing Cloud Computing Policy. With several government agencies using the cloud-based systems, the cloud infrastructure is getting better advancements and upgrades with time. The apprehensions of using cloud such as security breach, privacy loss, and malignant threats are getting better too.

What are benefits of moving to the cloud overall? To be more specific, you can safely say that cloud-based systems solve your current crop of technology problems. Though cloud systems are scalable, reliable, and easily available, these aren’t the considerations for the benefits. Suppose you have developed an application which is getting high traffic, but the limited resources on the fly make it difficult to scale. Also, the development and storage requirements can be scaled easily. The systems are cost-effective as they operate on ‘pay-as-you-go’ model, and do not have any constraints of geography. The data recovery in cloud is implemented very quickly, along with a good control on your resources.

Well, one thing is for sure – in just couple of years, cloud technology will be the standard. Not restricted to just governments, corporate, or organizations.

We don’t want to say the obvious thing again – Cloud is the future of computing. Get started on the cloud and embrace the future today. For all the cloud-based solutions, contact the Apps4Rent team now.

QuickBooks Online vs QuickBooks Desktop in the Cloud. What Should You Choose in 2018?

2018 February 16

As a cloud hosting company, we often get asked: What is the difference between QuickBooks Online and QuickBooks Desktop in the cloud? Is QuickBooks Online as good as desktop version? Well, even though both have the same purpose, there are still major differences between them in 2018.

While we compare both neutrally with the use of plain facts, pitting one against another is inevitable. It will help all the QuickBooks users to understand the basic difference between QuickBooks Online and QuickBooks Desktop in the cloud:

1. Better features and functionality with QuickBooks Desktop in the cloud

The major benefit of both – QuickBooks Online and QuickBooks Desktop in the cloud – is the ability to allow the user anywhere anytime access. QuickBooks Desktop in the cloud allows the user to access the complete functionalities available in the Desktop version, while the online version gives you limited functions.

2. Better optimization of resources with QuickBooks Desktop in the cloud

QuickBooks Online has its own limitations – a few important features such as inventory tracking, creating POs, and assigning multi price-levels to items are only included in its more expensive plus version. These are important features for an accountant, which are available with the hosted QuickBooks Desktop. The resources are efficiently managed in the hosted QuickBooks Desktop allowing the user complete freedom over the software.

3. Adding third-party software is seamless with QuickBooks Desktop in the cloud

With QuickBooks Desktop in the cloud, you can add other software that integrates with QuickBooks on the same desktop, while QBO cannot offer this flexibility. For an example, the hosted QuickBooks communicates comprehensively with the CRM software ACT! This means that if a new entry is added to the CRM, the QuickBooks Cloud will automatically populate the same data into the system. This really saves a lot of time and effort of the users, which has direct impact on productivity.

4. Vendor support for running other applications in the cloud

With QuickBooks Desktop in the cloud, the third-party vendor offers IT Support, while QuickBooks Support is related to accounting issues. The cloud service provider who offers you desktop support can also help you provide support for running other integrated applications on the same desktop. The 24/7/365 Support of cloud providers like Apps4Rent means that you are opting for more than just a product.

QuickBooks Desktop in the cloud provides the same environment as your local desktop. Therefore, it allows you to access all the features of accounting software rather than just one part of it. To summarize, we would just say that QuickBooks Desktop in the cloud is better than QuickBooks Online.

4 Reasons to Move Your Accounting Software to the Cloud

2018 February 13

If you are a small business or a small accounting firm, you have limited IT resources. Nevertheless, your needs can be as complex as any bigger business. Your business is dependent on one or more accounting or tax software that needs to be available to in-house and external resources in a reliable and secure manner.

Is there any solution for being productive on this without incurring huge costs? Whether you are using simpler software such as QuickBooks or Sage 50, or more complex ones such as Drake, Ultratax, ProSeries, Lacerte, and advanced Sage versions, it is time to move it to a cloud-based virtual desktop.

The four reasons below tell you why it’s a good idea to migrate to cloud accounting vs traditional accounting:

Save money by outsourcing your IT infrastructure

In our experience, our small businesses customers cut their IT expenses by as much as 50% after moving to the cloud. We regularly get inquiries on cost efficiency. Some of the typical questions include: Will cloud migration save my time and money? Can I pay monthly? Do I have to bring my own license? Can multiple users access it at the same time? The answer to all the questions is a definite yes. If your finances operate within a shoe-string budget, moving to cloud will prove to be cost-efficient.

Be productive even on the go anywhere anytime

There’s a reason why many CPAs and account professionals are moving their accounting software to the cloud desktops every year. The key reason is that a cloud desktop can be accessed from anywhere, anytime, on any device – Mac, Windows, Chromebooks, Android/iOS devices. Moreover, it operates just like your physical desktop with same look and feel. That means you can work without sacrificing productivity, even if you’re relaxing at a beach.

Do not worry about data security and backups

Every cloud-based operation needs to have an automatic data backup daily. Your data is protected by a robust firewall allowing the user a secure access with SSL. The system is fast and responsive with 99.9% reliability.

Relax due to hassle-free collaboration and superb support

Do not worry about the setup, migration, onboarding, deployment and operations. The cloud service provider takes care of everything. At any point, you can upgrade/downgrade the number of users along with plans. There is Vendor Support for accounting needs, and IT Support from cloud provider for cloud-based needs.

Apart from the above mentioned obvious benefits, moving to cloud is the need of the hour. About 90% of businesses will be on cloud by 2020. Why wait when you can get the benefits right now?
What we have observed in all these years is that people are apprehensive at the beginning. But once they migrate to the cloud, it becomes one of their better business decisions in the long term. So, if you’re looking to move your favorite accounting software to the cloud, reach out to a Cloud Desktop hosting provider such as Apps4Rent today.

4 Reasons to Move Away From Office 365

2018 February 12

by admin

The world is moving to cloud. But there is a certain segment that is moving away from Office 365 due to its few drawbacks.

Talking about moving away from Office 365 in 2018? It seems counterintuitive – like some youngsters who prefer vinyl records for music. But there are good reasons for both.

Although Microsoft’s popular offering Office 365 is getting better each day with improved features, newer functionalities, and ease of use; there is a small section of people who are drifting away from it. In an environment where companies are moving their IT to the cloud, why do we get inquiries on moving out of Office 365?

Being in cloud hosting business, we get many calls for this reverse migration per day. That is why, we decided to look at the pain points amid a stellar performance of Office 365 in recent years.

Here are the four major points that dissuade users to continue with Office 365:

  1. Microsoft may discontinue any feature anytime

    Office 365 is very dynamic in nature. It has rigorous updates which add/removes features as per Microsoft’s latest product alignments. The continuous upgrades can make users feel that they have less control of the system.

  2. Public facing website is not allowed

    After Microsoft’s changeover date of March 9, 2015, the existing SharePoint customers were given a deadline of two years to continue their external facing websites. The functionality would cease after the deadline. Customers must subscribe to third-party solutions for public website functionality.

  3. Incoming emails in SharePoint Online are not available

    Customers cannot send email directly to their document libraries and lists. If your email lies outside the Microsoft ecosystem, you cannot go through many functionalities that SharePoint has to offer.

  4. Access services will be removed from SharePoint Online

    The Access services which were available in 2007 versions will be discontinued from April 2018. Customers who have been using traditional versions will need to find newer solutions. Therefore, many customers find it difficult manage the overhaul in the system.

    There is a simple solution to all the above problems. There is an equivalent to Office 365 SharePoint Online functionality – a hosted SharePoint 2016 Enterprise solution by Apps4Rent that still retains features that Office 365 is eliminating.

    An expert third-party SharePoint hosting provider fulfills the needs for problems that one size fits all Office 365 does not. With expert help, one cannot only control their deployments/developments but also have full rights over their controls and upgrades, depending on their requirements.

VMware vSphere Vs. Microsoft Hyper–V

2016 November 17

by admin

When it comes to hypervisors to run your virtual machine, experts have consistently pitted VMware’s vSphere against Microsoft’s Hyper–V. Whereas the truth is that both have their pros and cons and depending on the context of application, both may be considered as options.

It’s worthwhile then, to look into the comparison between the two and investigate why you should choose one over the other.

vSphere was introduced in the market much before Hyper-V. The fact that the product has managed to build a legion of hardcore users who swear by their brand, is not without a reason. Be it handling demanding workloads, effortlessly hoisting that into the cloud or intelligently adapt to the most challenging IT environments, vSphere does it all with extreme sophistication.

But so does Microsoft’s Hyper V.

There’s nothing that you can’t accomplish with Hyper-V that you can with vSphere. Hyper–V loyalists will tell you it is second to none. The biggest advantage that Hyper–V has over vSphere is price. It’s markedly cheaper yet extends the same sophistication and user experience to customers. For example, Apps4Rent’s Hyper-V server plan with 4GB RAM and 40 GB storage costs just $49/month. A comparable hosted virtual server based on VMWare vSphere is priced over $100/month.

To understand the real difference, one must look at the functional level features of both, that will help to choose one over the other. While both can perform many functionalities, there are few differences which sets apart Hyper V from vSphere.

Here, Apps4Rent makes it easier for you by laying down the key differences in features that are important to end users and server administrators:


Features vSphere Hyper-V
Access Windows Desktop YES YES
Snapshots YES YES
Installing Applications YES YES
3rd Party Multipathing (MPIO) YES (Available on 5.1 Enterprise Plus) YES
Offloaded Data Transfer YES (Available on 5.1 Enterprise Plus) YES
Virtual Machine Live Migration YES (Available on 5.1 Enterprise Plus) YES
Shared-Nothing Live Migration YES (Available on 5.1 Enterprise Plus) YES
Network Virtualization YES (Available on 5.1 Enterprise Plus) YES
Incremental Backups YES (Available on 5.1 Enterprise Plus) YES
VM Replication YES (Available on 5.1 Enterprise Plus) YES


The major difference between the two, as described above is the price. Hyper–V is the significantly lower-priced option with the Windows OS license typically included in Hyper-V hosting price. On VMware hosted server, it may be charged extra. With Apps4Rent, you get it at the lowest price in the market. For that reason, the momentum is with Hyper-V.

How SharePoint 2016 Eases Hybrid Deployment

2016 June 15

by admin

One of the strengths of SharePoint 2016 is the inclusion of features that improve integration between cloud-based Office 365 services and on-premises implementation of SharePoint 2016. SharePoint 2013 was built before Office 365 became widespread. Now millions of organizations have adopted Office 365. However, organizations are not yet ready to completely move away from on-premises implementations of SharePoint. Microsoft has built features into SharePoint 2016 that allow organizations to take advantage of the powerful features that are available in SharePoint Online to be accessed through the on-premises SharePoint 2016.

A good example of how SharePoint 2016 makes it easier to do hybrid setups is the new hybrid configuration wizard. Previously, one could implement a hybrid with the use of PowerShell scripts to link the on-premises and Office 365 environments. The wizard-driven process makes the task much more natural and intuitive.

The hybrid search feature has also received an upgrade in SharePoint 2016. SharePoint 2013 also allowed one to search local and cloud servers; however, the indexes for the Cloud and on-premises environments were segregated. In SharePoint 2016, there is a true hybrid index that further boosts the power of the search feature.

For those who love to use the Delve feature of Office 365 for collaboration, a hybrid deployment allows visibility of both local and SharePoint Online content.

SharePoint 2016 has blurred the lines between on-premises and cloud-based SharePoint servers, allowing organizations to progress towards the Cloud solutions while retaining their investments in on-premises implementations.

SharePoint 2016 – Great Hybrid Features for the Users

2015 August 25

by admin

SharePoint 2016 IT Preview is here and it brings along a whole lot of new enhancements for the end user. Presumably, the focus is on hybrid possibilities to make SharePoint 2016 work well with Office 365. Hybridization results in a seamlessly integrated experience across SharePoint Server 2016 IT Preview and SharePoint Online. With a single profile in Office 365 storing all the user profile details, things get only easier. Throw in Hybrid OneDrive for Business, and you can use any device to access your documents, files, folders etc. directly through Office 365.

The new Cloud hybrid search adds another cushy layer of convenience by indexing On-premise and other content to the search index in Office 365. In other words, use the Office 365 Search to get you results from both On-Premises SharePoint Search Index and Office 365 for the same search term results. SharePoint 2016 also can also crawl older SharePoint versions such as 2007, 2010 and 2013, without needing to upgrade. Besides, you do a “follow” for On-Premises as well as Office 365 and see them both in a single location in the “Sites” app – something you will find via the App Launcher in SharePoint 2016. Bill Baer’s statement best sums up the experience: “SharePoint 2016 was built from the Cloud-Up”.

Apps4Rent Reviews Hyper-V 2012

2013 January 14

Apps4Rent recently launched the new Hyper-V Server 2012 version.  Therefore, I thought that a quick review of this cost-effective and feature-rich server virtualization solution would be great for our current and future customers who are eager to know more about it.  Based on Windows Server 2012, the new Hyper-V virtual dedicated server provides enhanced features and capabilities to effectively consolidate servers while utilizing resources to its maximum.  With new upgraded features such as support for up to 64 processors, additional resilience, new VHDX with 64 terabytes of disk capacity, Hyper-V Server 2012 guarantees compatibility with high-performance, large virtual machines, thus sustaining workloads required during significant scale up.  Here is a quick review on what’s new and exciting in this cost-effective server virtualization solution.

What’s new in Hyper V Virtual Servers?

Hyper-V Server 2012 enables Live Migration: You can do live migration of your virtual machines from one server to another even if the machines do not share same cluster or storage space. Moreover, you can perform live migration without the need for complex storage mappings.

Hyper-V 2012 supports Large Workloads. Hyper-V Server 2012 has been built to support up to 64 virtual processors at a time; which means it has the ability to withstand large, high performance virtual machines. You can run your largest workloads in your virtualized environment.

Hyper-V 2012 offers Multi-tenant Environment: Hyper-V 2012’s multi-tenancy feature ensures that even though virtual machines are stored on a single physical server, each virtual machine experience isolated and secured environment.

Extensible Switch: As you depend on virtualization, you should be able to manage diverse types of requests. Some of those requests typically fall under networking preferences. The Hyper-V Extensible Switch provides you with an open, extensible switch that supports both security and management requirements. You can user partner extensions or create your own extensions in order to support these needs.

Dynamic Memory: With this feature, users can assign memory resources for virtual machine more effectively. For instance, you can reduce the minimum memory when you know the virtual machine will not require it. On the other hand, you can also increase the memory size so that the virtual machine can consume more RAM as per the requirement.

Hyper-V Replica for Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery: Hyper-V Replica provides asynchronous imitation of virtual machines, thus ensuring business continuity and disaster recovery. During unexpected failures such as any natural calamity, power outage, or fire at your prime site, you can yourself fail over the virtual machines to the Hyper-V server running at your recovery site.

Whether you are planning to increase your VM mobility and availability, manage multi-tenant environments, or gain more flexibility, Hyper-V Server 2012 offers you the tools and platform you require to increase your business flexibility that too with confidence.
