Add two-factor authentication to any app that uses AD

(0 comments)

We have primarily been promoting our new native AD two-factor authentication for use by Administrators looking to meet the latest PCI-DSS 3.2 requirements or thwart pass-the-hash attacks, however it is more powerful than that.

This past week we have helped a customer add two-factor authentication to a PC-Duo, a remote-control app they use to manage their financial services customers.  After an incident, they decided they needed to boost security.  They were already using WiKID for their internal VPN, so extending it to their customer support option made sense. Previously, we could only work with solutions that supported RADIUS like Bomgar.

These use-case scenarios have similarities:  Privileged access to critical information and capabilities; they are special accounts, not user accounts.  You don't want two-factor authentication on Outlook.  And you don't want your sysadmin Bob performing admin tasks as bob, but rather bob_admin.  You should have separate accounts for admins or other privileged users.

There's a whole lot of remote access tools out there that do not support RADIUS.  If you're using one, please consider adding two-factor authentication today!
