Enterprise IT and Technology advancement has organizations developing strategies to secure endpoints, applications and infrastructure from unauthorized attacks. With the increase in the number of cyber-attacks globally and their level of sophistication, the threats are accumulating on the organizations’ fears as they abuse the access credentials to gain entry to the organizational resources – leading to severe consequences either in the form of data loss or financial loss.
Though organizations implement PAM solutions across their infrastructure to prevent unauthorized access to the organizational assets, there will be traces of opportunity for the attackers owing to human error.
Human error can take the forms of using simple passwords, the same passwords for multiple applications or using sticky notes.
Why Do You Need Multi-Factor Authentication?
Using Multi-Factor Authentication to control access adds another layer of security. Setting up MFA will entail creating a username and password and receiving a unique code by SMS text message, email, token, or push authentication.
Use Cases: How to Enable MFA for Internal Users?
How to Enable MFA for Users Accessing from Remote Locations?
How to Secure Users as they Login from a Different Machine?
Leveraging Cloud Authentication Providers
Benefits of Sectona MFA:
- Sectona provides an in-built Multi-Factor Authentication system for its PAM user. It mainly uses Two Factor Authentication based on “What you know” and “What you have.” Here, the passwords are something a user knows, and the OTPs will be something they will have at the time of login.
- The tool is also integrated with several solutions such as Duo, Okta, OneLogin, Google Authenticator, Vasco, RSA SecureID, Microsoft Authenticator, and FIDO2.
- Organizations can easily configure a suitable MFA solution in the Sectona Security Platform. The administrators must create a user access policy to link with the user group and enable multi-layer security. For example, create a user group for vendors to provide MFA to vendors. Configure MFA service in the product and create a policy. Then assign created policy to the vendors’ user group.
