Feature Spotlight: Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

TransitionManager now supports Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), a security protocol that mandates individuals to furnish two or more forms of identification before attaining access to a system, account, or application. MFA introduces an additional layer of security beyond the conventional username and password combination, thereby heightening the challenge for unauthorized users attempting to breach sensitive information.

TransitionManager release 6.4 utilizes Time-based One-Time Password (TOTP), two-factor authentication (2FA). TOTP adheres to industry-standard algorithms on the server to generate OTP codes. Subsequently, a mobile application like Google Authenticator, once linked to the application through a QR code process, generates One-Time Password codes valid for a brief duration.

Incorporating MFA in TransitionManager yields several significant user advantages, fostering heightened security, safeguarding sensitive data, and contributing to an overall more resilient user experience.

Feature Benefit
Increased Security Protects against unauthorized access
Credential Protection Mitigates password-related risks: With MFA, the reliance on passwords alone is diminished
Data and Identity Protection Safeguards sensitive information
Compliance with Security Standards Meets regulatory requirements
Flexible Authentication Options MFA allows users to choose from multiple authentication methods based on their preferences or the level of security required such as SMS codes, app-generated codes, biometrics (fingerprint or facial recognition), or hardware tokens.
Notification of Suspicious Activity Alerts for unusual login attempts

TransitionManager solidifies its position as a leading migration and IT transformation platform with the integration of MFA. By adding an extra layer of defense against unauthorized access and cyber threats, users can have increased confidence that both their data and accounts are protected and kept secure.
