MFA License

Estimated reading: 1 minute 114 views

MFA (Multi-Factor Authentication) is a security protocol that enhances protection by requiring users to provide multiple forms of verification before accessing a system or application. It significantly reduces the risk of unauthorized access by combining something the user knows (like a password) with something the user has (like a smartphone).

What is a Visual Guard MFA? VG has integrated a security framework to enhance the application by adding an additional verification method beyond just passwords. Here a user would be asked to provide an OTP or link that would be sent over an SMS or email. This MFA license is an annual or monthly subscription, it can be used by one or multiple VGRepositories and is positioned at the same level as the Visual-Guard license, ensuring integrated and comprehensive security management across your systems.

We have 2 type of MFA policies:

  • Global MFA Policy:  A Global MFA Policy in Visual Guard is a centralized set of rules and settings that define how MFA is applied across all applications and users within an organization.
  • Application MFA Policy: Is a specific set of rules and settings that govern the implementation of MFA for a particular application.
