You know how important it is to keep passwords secure. You also know the importance of password managers and creating strong passwords. But is that enough?
With each passing day, organizations are increasingly succumbing to cyberattacks. While you should focus mainly on maintaining smart and secure passwords, you also have to prioritize safeguarding user accounts—which, if compromised, could lead to network breaches that endanger your organization's data security.
A simple solution to secure Active Directory domain logins is multi-factor authentication (MFA). MFA adds an extra layer of security to the existing username and password-based authentication.
MFA in ADSelfService Plus supports 15 authentication methods, including 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 Active Directory domain and secure:
You can also choose to enable Duo Security for users belonging to specific domains, OUs, and groups. You can make Duo Security mandatory or let users choose from multiple authentication methods.
Once MFA is enabled in ADSelfService Plus, users will have to enroll with Duo Security for MFA to be enforced during their domain actions, such as endpoint and cloud application logins and self-service actions. They can choose a mode of authentication that’s convenient for them.
The modes of authentication users can choose from are:
Upon successful verification, users will be able to carry out secured Active Directory domain logins and self-service actions.
The default username and password-based authentication method is slowly becoming outdated owing to the advanced data breach techniques employed by hackers. MFA provides additional layers of security to sensitive domain actions.
MFA using Duo Security can be configured quickly with minimal steps.
Every time a user attempts identity verification using MFA, the action is audited by ADSelfService Plus in the form of a report that includes information like time of access, the machine used, and whether the action was successful.
Administrators have complete control over whether to choose any one or all of the authentication modes during user authentication for added security.
