miniOrange MFA product provides ready integrations with number of leading providers. MFA for AWS Workspaces provides you secure Multi Factor Authentication into your AWS WorkSpaces Client.

To enable 2FA you can enable RADIUS authentication in WatchGuard and configure policies in miniOrange to enable or disable 2FA for users.
miniOrange 2FA for VPN Login
miniOrange accomplishes this by acting as a RADIUS server, that accepts the username/password of the user entered as a RADIUS request, validates the user against the user store as Active Directory ( AD ), prompts him for the 2-factor authentication and either grants/revokes access based on the input by the user.
Types of 2FA Authentication with RADIUS
The 2-factor authentication can be of two types depending on the VPN clients.
In VPN Clients that support RADIUS Challenge :
miniOrange provides user authentication from external directories like Microsoft Active Directory, Azure AD, AWS Cognito etc.
