Adaptive MFA: Moving Beyond User Name and Password

Securing your data with a single factor – a password – is a bit like locking up an expensive racing bike with cheap chain and a padlock. It only stops unmotivated thieves. Ask any of the numerous companies that have grabbed the headlines this year. Single-factor authentication failed to protect the personal data of millions of people – and these companies paid dearly for the mistake.

Two-factor authentication can help. It keeps motivated hackers out. The problem? Traditional Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) solutions are complex to scale and create too much friction for users. Okta Adaptive MFA makes authentication simple and strong. It provides a robust policy framework, a modern set of factors, risk based authentication, and integrations with all the apps and VPNs you need.

This white paper offers an overview of Okta’s solutions.
