Two-factor Authentication

Two-factor Authentication

Two-factor Authentication is a method of strong authentication requiring two different forms of identification instead of the traditional single password.

Secret Server allows administrators to require Two-factor Authentication through a confirmation email for designated users.

Why use Two-factor Authentication?

Secure password storage is a major consideration for users who access Secret Server from laptops or other mobile devices as they are more vulnerable to having a device stolen. Requiring multiple forms of authentication provides additional security against theft or attempts to crack a user’s password.

Secret Server also supports RADIUS-based authentication.
