At SurePassID, we know one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to MFA – and backup authentication methods. Different organizations have different use cases and requirements. Thus we offer the widest variety of backup authentication methods.
SurePassID Authentication Server enables any authentication method to be used as a backup authentication method. Administrators can specify the backup authentication method or methods for any given user account. Alternatively, users can be allowed to choose their own backup method or methods from a pre-approved list.
For additional security, backup authentication methods can be specified for emergencies only. Once used, an alert can be sent to IT security or helpdesk staff for human intervention, or the user account can operate on a less-privileged basis according to security policies.
