How MFA works in Identity360

Here's how MFA works when a user tries to access Identity360 or any enterprise application.

How MFA works in ManageEngine Identity360
  • A user may try to access an application either directly or from Identity360's dashboard.
  • They will have to verify their identity in either case and will be redirected to Identity360's login page.
  • Primary authentication in Identity360 happens via the user's associated directory through the OpenID Connect (OIDC) protocol.
  • After successful completion of the primary authentication, Identity360 performs secondary authentication using the configured MFA authenticators.
  • Upon successful completion of MFA, the user gains access to Identity360 and other enterprise applications assigned to them.

Frequently asked questions

1. What is the difference between MFA and SSO?

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is an identity security measure where a resource, like an application, is secured using multiple authentication methods, and any user accessing the resource must authenticate themselves with those methods to gain access to it.

Single sign-on (SSO) is the process of granting users access to multiple resources after a single round of identity verification. After initial authentication, they can directly access all resources assigned to them for a stipulated time without reauthentication.

2. Why do I need to secure SSO with MFA?

Since SSO provides one-click access to multiple resources after a single round of identity verification, it is essential that this identity verification process is completely secure. Implementing MFA secures SSO with additional authentication methods beyond usernames and passwords and defends against potential attacks.

3. How does MFA work with SSO?

A user may try to access a resource—either directly or through the identity provider (IdP)—using SSO. In both cases, they will have to verify their identity with multiple authenticators, which may differ in number and type based on the organization's settings. Upon successful completion of MFA, the user gains access to that particular resource and other resources assigned to them through SSO.

4. How do I implement MFA for endpoints and applications in my organization?

You can implement MFA using Identity360, which employs strong authenticators, such as Zoho OneAuth, Google Authenticator, and custom TOTP authenticators, to safeguard enterprise applications and endpoints. It provides fine-grained controls—like allowing browser trust for a desired limited period and usage of CAPTCHA codes during identity verification—to tailor the MFA for your organization. For primary authentication, you can choose your preferred directory, like Azure AD, Google, and Salesforce, which your users may already be a part of. With the help of MFA reports, you can track details like users' MFA enrollment status and all MFA attempts made by users along with timestamps.
