MFA - Multi-factor Authentication
Identity is the New PERIMETER
In this new world of hybrid technology infrastructures, there is no longer one boundary to protect. We must protect information when potentially it’s:
- Stored somewhere out of our control
- Being accessed from a device not in our control
- Possibly by a user not fully in our control
- Over a network not in our control
MFA IS THE FIREWALL FOR IDENTITY
The fact is that IDENTITY has become THE MOST CONSEQUENTIAL ATTACK VECTOR. According to the 2017 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report 81% of of hacking-related breaches leveraged either stolen and/or weak passwords.
The way to “firewall” this new perimeter is with Multi-Factor Authentication. MFA technology has come a long way since the days of hardware tokens.
How easily can you distinguish legitimate users from malicious actors?
BALANCE SECURITY WITH CONVENIENCE by collecting information around
With more confidence that a user is who they claim to be, the less we can depend on authentication
– MORE THAN TOKENS –
RSA PROVIDES A HOST OF SOPHISTICATED AUTHENTICATION OPTIONS
RSA SecurID Access provides the widest range of authenticators, letting you extend
modern MFA to more users—and allowing them to choose from push notification,
biometrics, hardware and software tokens, and more. RSA SecurID Access makes it
easy to manage diﬀerent authenticators for diﬀerent users, and to balance security,
convenience and cost.
RSA SECURID ACCESS
RSA SecurID Access enables businesses to EMPOWER EMPLOYEES, partners and contractors to do more, without compromising security or convenience. Embracing the security challenges of today’s blended-cloud and on-premises environments, bring=your-own-device trends and mobile policies, RSA SecurID Access ensures that users are who they say they are- and that they get TIMELY, CONVENIENT access to the applications they need, from ANY DEVICE, ANYWHERE.
THREE KEYS TO USING MFA TO SECURE YOUR VPN ACCESS
POWER ACCURATE STEP- UP AUTHENTICATION WITH RISK ANALYTICS
Look for a MFA solution that can discern when access risk is high and when it’s not— and respond accordingly. User-behavior analytics, relevant threat intelligence and machine learning make it possible to step up authentication when access risk warrants it, rather than inconveniencing low-risk users with unnecessary requests for additional authentication. A robust policy engine can put flexible controls in the hands of your security teams.
OFFER EACH USER THE MOST CONVENIENT AUTHENTICATION OPTION
Employees, contractors and partners. At the office, at home, in coffee shops, on airplanes. They all need easy, secure VPN access—but not all the same way. To give users convenient VPN access without compromising security, your MFA solution needs to offer a range of sign-in options, including mobile push-to-approve, one-time passcodes, biometrics, and hardware and software tokens.
KEEP IT SIMPLE FOR BOTH USERS AND ADMINS
Spare yourself the grief of multiple MFA solutions. An MFA solution that can extend beyond VPN to other access scenarios—such as third-party cloud applications—gives users a single, seamless access experience, and you one secure solution to manage.
