With the pace of password-based security breaches, simply using usernames and passwords to secure a Remote Desktop (RDP) and Windows local login is no longer an option. That’s why it has become necessary to add an additional layer of Two-factor authentication (2FA) security to filter out unauthorized users.
miniOrange's Windows Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) solution prevents these sorts of Password-Based breaches and adds an additional layer of security to your RDP And Windows local login. As the Windows 2FA / MFA feature is enabled, users have to authenticate themselves in two successive stages to access their Windows machines. The first level of authentication happens using their usual Windows AD credentials. For the second level of authentication, admins can choose from the wide range of 15+ 2FA authentication methods that miniOrange offers. miniOrange integrates with both Microsoft Windows Client and Server Operating Systems.

Please make sure that at this point the user with same username as windows exists in miniOrange and has 2FA set up.

The user initiates the login to Windows or Remote Desktop Service either through a Remote Desktop Client or via the RD Web login page from his browser, after which the RADIUS request is sent from the miniOrange RD Web component installed on the target machine to the miniOrange RADIUS server, which authenticates the user via Local AD, and after successful authentication, Two-factor authentication (2FA) of the user is invoked. After the user validates himself, he is granted access to the Remote Desktop Service (RDP).
Windows Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) entails enhancing the security of logins to Windows systems by requiring multiple authentication factors to verify a user's identity before granting them network access.
Absolutely. By implementing 2FA for Windows logins, you can introduce additional layers of security to your users' machines. Relying solely on a single factor, typically a username and password, exposes these logins to potential attacks. However, integrating supplementary authentication methods fortifies the machines within your organization, offering protection against breaches and malicious activities.
For bolstering the security of Windows machines in your organization, consider implementing miniOrange's Windows Logon 2FA solution for both local and remote logins. Furthermore, miniOrange provides additional 2FA features, such as:
