Ensure Only Authorized Humans Access Critical Infrastructure
Privileged access to systems is often the primary attack interface, which must be protected from cyber adversaries who wish to steal information or do harm in an environment. Enforcing strong authentication through multi-factor authentication (MFA) bolsters identity assurance and ensures that only authorized humans access critical systems. Centrify’s MFA at login for Linux, UNIX, and Windows systems is host-enforced and cannot be circumvented.
Zero Trust Demands Identity Assurance
Centralized MFA Service for All Privileged Access
Whether applying MFA at system login, vault login, or during privilege elevation, the Centrify Platform powers a consistent and easily maintainable MFA Service for ALL privileged access. Centrify Platform MFA service delivers out-of-the-box support for NIST Level 2 and 3 Assurance Levels.
Local MFA Capabilities for Linux and UNIX
The Centrify Client is configured with a centralized policy to step up authentication at login with a call out to a Centrify or 3rd party pluggable authentication module that challenges the user for MFA. Local enforcement simplifies the environment where systems directly communicate with the OTP.
Windows MFA Natively Integrated into the Login Process
Secure access to Windows systems with host-enforced MFA that verifies the identity of the user accessing the server. Host-enforced MFA cannot be bypassed by malicious attackers and streamlines the login process for authorized privileged users with seamless integration into the Windows login process.
Centrify Mobile App for Push Notification and Workflow
Centrify Mobile App for iOS and Android delivers a simple interface for MFA notifications. The Mobile App also provides an interface to manage OATH tokens where the Centrify Vault Suite manages the seed or secret. This interface validates the OTP codes for privileged applications or services that require OATH-compliant MFA, such as the AWS® Console.
