Single Sign-On (SSO) is an important aspect of Identity and Access Management (IAM) or access control services. SSO solution implemented perfectly within an enterprise makes overall password management easier, improving productivity and security reducing the risk of lost, weak, or forgotten passwords.
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is an authentication method that requires the user to provide two or more verification factors to gain access to an online cloud account, applications, network, or VPN. MFA is a core component of a strong Identity and Access Management (IAM) policy which helps in decreasing the likelihood of a successful cyber attack. Rather than just prompting for a username and password, MFA requires one or more additional verification factors. Additional verification factors can be OTP over SMS/Email, Token based authentication, or any of your preferable MFA methods from a plethora of MFA login methods provided by miniOrange.
