Nine out of the top 10 public clouds run on Linux, per the State of Linux report. Top-notch architecture and compatibility make the Linux OS a popular choice for IT professionals when handling critical workloads in cloud computing environments. Securing these Linux machines with just one set of credentials, however, makes it easy for a hacker to breach an organization's network and cause mayhem. It’s high time organizations started taking measures to fortify their Linux endpoints. ADSelfService Plus can help by providing MFA support to secure Linux machine logons.
“MFA can block over 99.9 percent of account compromise attacks." - Microsoft
MFA for Linux helps prevent account takeovers even if hackers gain access to users' AD credentials via brute-force, credential stuffing, or phishing attacks because they would still need access to the users' phones or emails to get the passcodes and complete the second factor of authentication.
ADSelfService Plus' Endpoint MFA for Linux builds an additional layer of security for the user logon process. When enabled, users will only be granted access to their workstations or servers once they've successfully completed two levels of authentication, the first of which is using their AD credentials. For the second level, admins can configure one or more authentication factors that ADSelfService Plus offers:
