      1. Challenge: The user needs to verify himself using any of the three methods mentioned in table in step 7.1
      2. Deny : Deny users access to the system
    • Enable option Send email alerts to Users if number of Device registrations exceeded allowed count if you want to alert the user about no of devices exceeding the limit. Save the configuration.
    • Amazon Web Services(AWS) Single Sign On (sso) Restrict Access adaptive authentication device restriction


    7.3: Add Adaptive Authentication policy to Google Apps (G Suite).

      How to add a trusted Device
      1. When End-user log in to the self service console after the policy for device restriction is on, he is provided the option to add the current device as a trusted device.

    More Secure authentication with Two-Factor Authentication

    The most practical way to strengthen authentication is to require a second factor after the username/password stage. Since a password is something that a user knows, ensuring that the user also has something or using biometrics thwarts attackers that steal or gain access to passwords.

    Traditional two-factor authentication solutions use hardware tokens (or "fobs") that users carry on their keychains. These tokens generate one-time passwords for the second stage of the login process. However, hardware tokens can cost up to $40 each. It takes time and effort to distribute them, tracks who has which one, and replace them when they break. They're easy to lose, hard to use, and users consistently report high levels of frustration with token-based systems.


    Your choice of the second factor

    miniOrange authentication service has 15+ authentication methods.

    You can choose from any of the above authentication methods to augment your password based authentication. miniOrange authentication service works with all phone types, from landlines to smart-phone platforms. In the simplest case, users just answer a phone call and press a button to authenticate. miniOrange authentication service works internationally and has customers authenticating from many countries around the world.
