The following is from:  kb.iweb.com
The instructions below apply to machines under Windows Server 2012, 2008 R2, 2008, and 2003. Follow these steps:

Connect to your server via Remote Desktop
Click simultaneously on the Windows logo + R to open the “Run” dialog and execute the “cmd” command
Open the registry editor by typing the “regedit” command
Search for this registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\TerminalServer\WinStations\RDP-Tcp\PortNumber
Double-click or right-click on the “PortNumber” registry subkey, select the decimal base and type the port number of your choice (the default port is 3389, in this example, we selected port 3390). Click on “Ok” to save your selection.
IMPORTANT: Make sure that remote access to your server through the new port is authorized in your Windows firewall before executing the next step.
Exit the registry editor
Restart your server

 After the reboot, specify the Remote Desktop port number.

As for two factor authentication you'll have to look into the 3rd party options and decide which is right for your company based on functionality & costs.

There are lots of options out there from RSA SecurID to many different OpenID options.  Some network security companies also have 2-factor offerings such as WatchGuard and Fortinet.  Google will be your friend on this one.
