You already know how important it is to keep passwords secure, but it's not just passwords that need to be protected. With each passing day the number of malware attacks increases. While you should focus mainly on maintaining a smart and secure password, you also have to prioritize safeguarding users' identities—which, if compromised, could also lead to network breaches.
To ensure users' password reset and account unlock operations are secure, you need to deploy an additional layer of security with multifactor authentication.
Multifactor authentication in ADSelfService Plus supports Duo Security, a widely-trusted access platform that secures organizations by verifying users' identities. As an administrator, you can configure Duo Security for users in your domain in less than a minute.
When the authentication process is enabled, users will have to enroll with Duo Security for multifactor authentication. They can choose a mode of communication, according to their convenience, which will be used to authenticate their identity. Then, they will be able to reset passwords or unlock accounts.
The modes of communications users can choose from are:
Upon successful verification, users will be able to self-service their passwords and accounts. Is your Active Directory ready for Duo Security?
