Step Up Authentication

What is Step-Up Authentication?

Step-up authentication is a security measure that involves the implementation of additional authentication steps to prevent unauthorized individuals from accessing sensitive information and engaging in high-risk activities. With step-up authentication, an extra layer of protection is added.
With the added level of protection, users are only activated when they attempt specific actions, ensuring the security of their transactions and sensitive data. Let us take an example where a user is logging into their bank account and is trying to transfer or make a payment of a considerable amount through bank transfer. In this scenario, a user is required to provide more information such as an OTP sent to their mobile number or SMS to authenticate the user.

Strengthens Data Security

When Step-up Authentication is enabled, runtime risk analysis is performed, significantly reducing the chances of unauthorized users gaining access to sensitive corporate information. Overall, it ensures enhanced data security and protects against potential data breaches.

Enhanced Productivity

It prompts for authentication only when necessary, minimizing the need for users to log in multiple times. This streamlined process allows employees to focus on their work, improving overall productivity within the organization.

Effective Fraud Prevention

Creates a robust environment where any attempt to account breach or fraudulent transaction requires additional efforts and resources. This acts as a strong deterrent against fraud attempts, protecting both user accounts and the organization's financial assets.

Cost Saving

Implementing Step-Up Authentication results in a reduction of suspicious activity on user accounts. Organizations can allocate fewer resources and spend less money on security management, leading to cost savings in the long run.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Step-Up authentication and Multi-Factor authentication?

Step-up authentication is the process by which the user is challenged to produce additional forms of authentication. Multi-factor authentication is when a user is asked to produce multiple forms of authentication to provide higher assurance. Step-up authentication, therefore, utilizes multi-factor authentication.

What are some examples of Step-Up authentication?

Failed login attempts: Repeatedly entering incorrect credentials triggers step-up authentication. Users receive a magic link via email to reset their password.
Unusual location behavior: Logging in from a new location prompts step-up authentication. Users must provide additional credentials, such as a one-time passcode, for verification.
Unusual time of access: Logging in during atypical time frames triggers step-up authentication. Users may need to provide extra verification factors to ensure the legitimacy of the login attempt.
High-value transactions: Initiating significant financial transactions activates step-up authentication. Users are prompted to provide additional authentication factors, like security questions or biometric scans.
