MFA for Privileged Access
Reinforce Secure Access to Critical Systems
Add an extra layer of security to stop breaches by configuring risk-based multi-factor authentication for IT admins who access Windows and Linux servers, elevate privilege or leverage privileged credentials.
Protect Infrastructure by Enforcing Second Factor of Authentication at Login
Server Suite’s Zones, roles, and rights capabilities provide the ability to enforce a second factor of authentication — such as Centrify mobile authenticator, push notification, SMS/text, email, phone call and security questions — for specific users or Windows, Linux and UNIX servers during login.
Enforce Step up Authentication When Users Require Elevated Privilege
Users who have successfully logged into a server but need to run highly privileged commands may be prompted for a second factor when elevating privilege, per policy.
Risk-based Policies for Password Checkouts and Privileged Sessions
Identify anomalous behavior while it is happening, by enforcing risk-aware policies for users who are initiating a privileged session or checking out a password. Combining risk-level with role-based access controls, user context and multi-factor authentication (MFA) enables intelligent, automated, real-time decisions on whether to grant privileged access. These dynamically enforced access policies grant the user access, prompt for a second factor of authentication, or block access completely.
Interoperability with Third-party Authentication Methods
Centrify’s MFA capabilities are designed to work well with existing investments in RSA, OATH-based tokens and smartcards such as PIV/CAC. All of these can be brought under Centrify’s centralized management and enforced across your enterprise.
MFA Everywhere You Need It
Implementing policy-based MFA for every user (end users and privileged users), and every IT resource whether on-premises or in the cloud blocks cyberattacks at multiple points in the attack chain — and protects even when credentials are compromised.
