Two-Factor Authentication - 2FA

Two-Factor authentication (2FA) solution ensures security of user applications and environments, so that right set of eyes have access to your sensitive information sitting on the cloud or on-premise.

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)


What is Two-factor Authentication (2FA)?


Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) also called two-step verification or multi-factor authentication is a security process in which a user has to pass two different authentication factors to gain access to an account or a computer system. First factor is the basic thing you know: username and password and second factor is what you might have as unique like a (Smartphone, security token, biometric) to approve authentication requests. By enabling 2FA you'll add an additional layer of security making it harder for attackers to access the data through a person’s device or an online account. Two-Factor Authentication - 2FA security helps you and your users to protect against phishing, social engineering and password brute-force attacks and secures your logins.

How does Two-Factor authentication (2FA) work?


  1. Firstly, the user navigates to the login page of the application or a website. For instance www.example.com/login
  2. User enters a username and password. User’s login credentials are checked by their respective server. This is the first factor of authentication.
  3. The site then prompts the user with the 2nd step authentication E.g Pop up asking for OTP sent over SMS /Email.
  4. When the user enters the second factor like OTP or Push notification it is checked against the database system if the second factor is correct.
  5. After successfully completing the 2nd factor authentication user is granted access to the application or a website.

Passwordless Authentication


Avoid the hassle of remembering passwords and risk of losing credentials by using Passwordless authentication. Passwordless connections allow users to log in without the need to remember a password.
Users can just enter the username and pass the Two-factor authentication - 2FA by entering OTP or via push notifications to login to the application. This gives an individual an easy and convenient way to sign in and access data from anywhere. Also, Passwords are a major vulnerability as users reuse passwords and are able to share them with others.

Select different 2FA methods for different user groups


Restrict 2FA methods for Users


Admin can set the default 2-factor method for users to avoid the extra step where each user can set their own 2FA method.
Admin also has the privileges to restrict the 2FA methods for end-users so that users are only allowed to use a particular set of 2-factor methods. Users can only see the allowed two-factor authentication methods on the user dashboard.

Role based Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)


Role-based 2FA authentication is an approach of restricting system access to authorized users. With hundreds or thousands of employees, security is more easily maintained by limiting access to sensitive information based on each user's established role within the organization. We provide an option to manage user and user groups according to their roles and providing them the necessary access. Admin can enable/disable 2FA for a particular role and for any application.
