Bring back Azure MFA per-user annual model
The documentation https://azure.microsoft.com/is-is/pricing/details/multi-factor-authentication indicates that "Starting September 1st 2018, new customers will no longer be able to purchase the standalone Azure Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) services."
The only option left for companies is to switch to Azure AD Premium P1 minimum, which is publicly priced 5,06€ vs MFA stand-alone 1,18€, meaning a 5 times price increase when you only need the Azure MFA feature! Additionally this came with no warning to let companies switch to other systems.
Azure MFA addresses a need which is not the same than Azure AD Premium. Please bring back the per-user annual model at least through Volume Licensing!

Why is this issue getting no attention? Especially when for CSPs, now that its mandatory to enable MFA for all users. :|
