Enable MFA for All Office 365 Users using Azure Active Directory Identity Protection.

“Azure Active Directory Identity Protection provides a consolidated view of at risk users, risk events and vulnerabilities, with the ability to remediate risk immediately, and set policies to auto-remediate future events. The service is built on Microsoft’s experience protecting consumer identities and gains tremendous accuracy from the signal from over 13B logins a day.”

To get started you will have to login to Office 365 Admin Portal https://Portal.Office.com

From the Admin console, open Azure Active Directory.
