Activate Two Factor Authentication Based On Your Own Specified Business Rules
The OptimalCloud offers two factor authentication, also called multi-factor authentication, for those situations or applications that require additional security. Like all components of the OptimalCloud, the service is completely customizable, allowing you to activate multi-factor authentication based on your own specified business rules.
For example, you can configure it to require two-factor authentication (2FA) when accessing an application off of the corporate network, or on an application-by-application basis.
One option for two-factor authentication (2FA) supported out of the box by the OptimalCloud is Time-based One-Time Password (TOTP). TOTP is an algorithm that generates a one-time password based on a shared secret key and current time stamp that is the foundation of OATH. Time-based one-time passwords are appealing because they provide a higher level of security, requiring a traditional static password and a TOTP which changes every 30 to 60 seconds, making it extremely resistant to attacks and security breaches.

The OptimalCloud’s multi-factor authorization and authentication configuration is flexible, which allows you to offer adaptive multi-factor authentication based on your own specified business rules.

Part of the OptimalCloud solution, the Optimal Authentication Service (OAS) is a multi-factor authentication-as-a-service offering that allows customers to implement a variety of MFA solutions using their existing web and non-web applications. As a MFA service, OAS helps prevent phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks by delivering push notifications to a user’s registered mobile device which optionally works with fingerprint enabled systems. OAS includes time-based one-time password (TOTP) and traditional one-time passcodes (OTP) that can be sent via short message service (SMS), email or voice calls. Each can be used as a stand-alone option or in conjunction with a complete IAM program. The mobile two factor authentication service can also be used to provide passwordless access to applications by leveraging mobile device push authentication.
OptimalMFA includes Time-based One-Time Password (TOTP), Short Message Service (SMS), Email and Optimal Push Authentication (OPA). Each can be used as a stand-alone option or in conjunction with a complete Identity Access and Management (IAM) program.
