miniOrange provides users with secure, seamless remote access to corporate networks and resources when travelling or working remotely with Multi-factor Authentication for Cisco Meraki VPN. You can enable Multi-factor authentication (MFA/2FA) for your Cisco Meraki Client VPN and your managed active directory to increase the security level. When you enable MFA/2FA, your users enter their username and password (first factor) as usual, and as a second factor, they have to enter an authentication code, which will be shared virtually on their device or in the form of a hardware token.
miniOrange provides an easy setup solution for MFA over Cisco Meraki VPN with 15+ MFA methods like OTP over SMS, Microsoft Authenticator, Google Authenticator, and many more. In addition to MFA over Cisco Meraki VPN, miniOrange also provides MFA over firewalls and routers using the radius Protocol. With the simple steps outlined below, this setup guide will assist you with the whole setup for MFA over Cisco Meraki VPN.
Depending on the VPN client, 2-factor authentication can take two forms..
miniOrange accomplishes this by acting as a RADIUS server that accepts the username/password of the user entered as a RADIUS request and validates the user against the user store as Active Directory (AD). After the first level of authentication, miniOrange prompts the user with 2-factor authentication and either grants/revokes access based on the input by the user.
