Endpoint MFA for macOS

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) for macOS

With one in three data breaches attributed to stolen credentials, MFA for macOS has rightfully become a focal point for many IT organizations. Most employees succumb to the pressure of managing multiple passwords and reuse passwords or create weak ones, making them an easy target for cybercriminals using brute-force and dictionary attacks. Enabling ADSelfService Plus' MFA for macOS endpoints adds a second factor to the authentication of user identities and the authorization of access to sensitive IT resources.

Setting up macOS MFA with ADSelfService Plus

Employees' desktops and laptops can serve as effective entry points for an elaborate cyberattack. Without system-based MFA, cybercriminals could leverage a compromised user account to access the user's machine and connected IT systems.

When ADSelfService Plus' macOS MFA is enforced, every user is required to authenticate their identity via two factors before they can access their machine. The first factor is generally the user’s domain credentials, and the additional factor can range from biometrics to smart cards.

Highlights of ADSelfService Plus' macOS MFA

  1. MFA at a granular level: Configure MFA based on a user’s domain, OU, or group membership to enforce specific second factors of authentication.
  2. Compliance with regulations: Meet compliance mandates for NIST SP 800-63B, the NYCRR, the FFIEC, the GDPR, and HIPAA with ADSelfService Plus’ macOS MFA.
  3. Conditional access: Strengthen authentication based on the real-time security risk posed by a user.

Why you should enable MFA for macOS

System-based MFA safeguards sensitive data, even in cases where passwords are compromised. For example, if a cybercriminal steals a user’s password via a credential-based attack or data-hoarding site, they still need access to the user's phone or email to advance past the second authentication factor.

Authentication codes from Google Authenticator or Microsoft Authenticator are unique and time-bound. These codes can only be used once and will expire if they are not entered within a certain period.
