Two-Factor Authentication (2FA/MFA) for BeyondTrust

BeyondTrust is a software and protocol which uses techniques to provide security to site-to-site connections. Also, it secures a point-to-point connection. You can enable two-factor authentication (2FA) for your BeyondTrust managed active directory to increase security level. When you enable 2FA, your users enter their username and password (first factor) as usual, The configured 2FA (OTP over SMS, Push Notifications, Google Authenticator etc) method prompts on for 2nd-step verification. After successfully signing in with both of the steps a user is granted access to the beyond trust account. This additional verification layer acts as a security measure and prevents unauthorized people from accessing the Beyond trust account by verifying your identity even if cyber attackers get to know your credentials.

Types of 2FA Authentication with RADIUS

The 2-factor authentication can be of two types depending on the clients.

  • Clients that support RADIUS Challenge.
  • Clients that do not support RADIUS Challenge.
