2FA on Exchange Server 2019

Looking at options to upgrade my Exchange Server to either a 2019 on-premises or hosted.

If I do a basic install of Exchange Server 2019 on a new server, what would be the best, least expensive way to add 2FA for Outlook connectivity?

As far as I've read, it does not come with this feature (to my surprise).

Thanks.

Hi, @oledrews

To enable 2FA, you may need to enable Hybrid Modern Authentication, which needs a hybrid deployment.
Here is an article from Exchange Team Blog on this topic for your reference: Announcing Hybrid Modern Authentication for Exchange On-Premises

Thanks KaelYao-MSFT.

As far as I can tell, this can be done without any extra cost using HMA with Exchange Server 2019. Is that correctly understood, and have you tried this yourself?

Thanks,

Ole

Hi,Ole.

Sorry I haven't tried this myself.
While according to this link: Features and licenses for Azure AD Multi-Factor Authentication

I suppose that you may try the Free tier.
