Nine out of the top ten public clouds run on Linux, says 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. With stolen credentials ranking among the top data breach vectors, it’s high time organizations started taking measures to secure Linux endpoints with MFA. After all, without an additional factor of authentication configured, just one set of credentials is all a hacker needs to breach an organization's network and cause mayhem.
ADSelfService Plus' Endpoint MFA for Linux builds an additional layer of security for the user logon process. When MFA is enabled for Linux, users will only be granted access to their workstations or servers once they've authenticated successfully through Active Directory (AD) along with any of these MFA techniques:
“MFA can block over 99.9 percent of account compromise attacks," says Microsoft.
MFA for Linux helps prevent account takeovers even if hackers gain access to Linux Active Directory user credentials via brute-force, credential stuffing, or phishing attacks, as they would still need access to the users' phone or email to get the passcodes and successfully complete the second factor of authentication.
