Support for Data on MFA Enforcement via Conditional Access Policies Now Available in Cyber Risk Dashboard

Partners that utilize default Conditional Access Policies for MFA Enforcement in Microsoft 365 can now track MFA enforcement and compliance using the Cyber Risk Dashboard. The Cyber Risk Dashboard now surfaces key insights on MFA Enforcement via Conditional Access Policies that use the following Entra ID access grants:

  • Require multi-factor authentication
  • Require authentication strength
  • RequireDuoMfa (if configured)

These new insights enable you to easily track and enforce your user access management security standards in Microsoft 365. For more information, visit our Microsoft MFA FAQ article to learn about what Microsoft 365 multifactor authentication data Liongard supports.

Roar Inspector is Now in Production with Newly Added Metrics

Liongard's Roar Inspector is now in official Production status, receiving several reliability and performance enhancements. As part of this update, we also added 145 metrics for the Roar inspector to help partners better manage failed inspectors and create alerts and reports to reflect failures that must be addressed.

The Roar Inspector allows for efficient management and oversight of your platform's performance by surfacing the status of your system inspectors and agents. With these new Metrics, creating Alerts for any Inspectors that require attention is easier than ever. Please visit our documentation for more information on the Roar Inspector and its configuration.

Microsoft 365 Inspector Configuration and Future Additional Data Update

Liongard has made modifications to the Microsoft 365 Inspector that will make previously missing data for Teams, OneDrive, and SharePoint in Microsoft 365 Child Inspectors accessible again in the upcoming June release. These data points include data print fields relating to SharePoint sites, OneDrive Drives, details on Teams applications, and more.

The modification to the Microsoft 365 Inspector includes newly added permission scopes that partners can configure today in preparation for the upcoming release when the new data will be available.

Please note that this step is ❗️optional❗️ and only required if you are interested in surfacing certain related data points related to mailboxes, OneDrive, Teams, and SharePoint within Microsoft 365 Child Inspectors.


❗️Optional Step❗️: Enabling Application Based Permissions

Liongard is an application that interacts many parts of Microsoft 365 to surface critical data points. In order to comply with Microsoft's granular delegated admin privileges and surface these newly available data points, partners must have the option of reconfiguring their GDAP relationships to include the
Privileged Role Administrator Entra ID security role.

Once all relationships have been updated, navigate to the Liongard Microsoft 365 Inspector page. Open the Parent Inspector's configuration page and ensure that you have turned on the Enable Application Based Permissions toggle and its accompanying features:

Then, complete the “Sign-In” step and save the Inspector configuration.
