If you want to tighten up the security on your Office 365 access, the easiest and cheapest way to do it is by requiring two factor authentication (2FA) using the Microsoft Authenticator App. Microsoft multifactor authentication requires users to enter a username and password along with confirming their identity using an app on their cell phone or tablet.
