What is Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)?
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) strengthens access security by requiring two methods (also referred to as factors) to verify your identity. These factors include: (1) something you know, like a username and password; plus (2) something you have, like a smartphone app to approve authentication requests; and (3) something you are, which could involve biometrics. It is one of the best ways to protect against remote attacks such as phishing, credential exploitation and other attempts to takeover your/your employees’ accounts.
By integrating two-factor authentication with your applications, attackers are unable to access your accounts without possessing your physical device needed to complete the second factor.
The Xari 2FA protects against phishing, social engineering and password brute-force attacks and secures your logins from attackers exploiting weak or stolen credentials.
Why Xari MFA?
- Easy for Every User
Xari MFA’s wide variety of authentication methods make it easy for every user to securely and quickly log-in.To ensure every point of access is protected, our trusted access solution easily integrates with on-premises, web-based and cloud-based applications.Our simple and secure single sign-on is the easiest way for your users to access all of their cloud applications by logging in once to a web portal.
- Easily enrol and Provision Users
While the Xari MFA user self-enrolment method is simple enough for users to do on their own, we also offer automatic enrolment options for ease of user provisioning for larger organisations. Improve speed to security by quickly synchronizing thousands of users from existing directories like Active Directory and Azure AD, or import users via API.
- Quickly Deploy at Scale
Deploying at scale has never been so painless. The Xari MFA uses Duo, a lightweight software as a service (SaaS) solution that requires minimal infrastructure to roll out to thousands of users. Plus, we send updates to your users’ devices to ensure they always have the latest security patches and features, eliminating overhead on your end.
- Secure All Applications
Secure all on-premises and cloud applications with the Xari MFA. We partner with major technology vendors to easily extend security controls to any application or service including Microsoft Office 365, Cisco AnyConnect, Amazon Web Services, Workday and more.
- Get Secure, Smart Access
As Xari MFA verifies your users’ identities, we also check their devices to ensure they’re healthy and up to date before allowing them access to your applications.
- Control User Access Policies
We collect data on every authentication request to your applications so you can make informed security policy decisions. With information on your users, devices and their authentication activity, you can get complete visibility into who’s accessing what. Our user access policies allow you to limit access per certain user groups to strengthen your security profile – e.g., block login attempts from countries you don’t do business in, or block users on anonymous networks.
