We have configured global protect client 4.1.6.

We want to use MS Azure for MFA can we do this by using SAML?

... then uncheck the checkbox or create a cert profile with the root cert of the server certificate that microsoft uses 😉

In general yes it should be possible, but you did not share a lot of information to answer the question ... 

Do you already have ADFS servers? Do you use Azure MFA there already? Do you use Azure MFA already for another service in your company or do you plan to implement it completely new? 

No it brand new setup.

We have GP client running version 4.1.6


No we do not use Azure MFA.

What are ADFS?


How they are linked to SAML?


Hi @MP18


Does your company in this case already uses an Azure AD and/or Office 365 or other Microsoft Cloud Services? Or what is the exact reason to use Azure MFA if there are no prerequisites?

ADFS technically is a SAML Identity Provider (I assumed you use this one as it is probably the only SAML IdP with an Azure MFA Integration). Another way you can go is with a Microsoft NPS RADIUS Server with the Azure MFA Plugin. 

Yes we have office 365 in cloud and also AD but not ADFS
