Description

 

BadgeInfo48x48

This feature requires an Advanced Data Sources.

 

The two-factor authentication provides unambiguous identification of users by means of combination of two different components. These components may be something the user knows or something the user possess.

 

The use of two-factor authentication is used to prove one's identity is based on the premises that an unauthorized actor is unlikely to be able to supply both factors required for access. If in an authentication attempt at least one of the components is missing or supplied incorrectly, the user's identity is not established with sufficient certainty and access to the asset being protected by the two-factor authentication will remain blocked.

 

Password Vault Manager has implemented 2FA to our data sources using Google Authenticator, Yubikey, Duo and AuthAnvil.
