RedHunt ASM Platform NVADR now supports SSO and MFA
We have been listening to your feedback and we are excited to announce that our Attack Surface Management (ASM) Platform, NVADR, now supports SSO (Single Sign On) and MFA (Multi Factor Authentication). This capability has been turned on for all the users and we support SSO for Google Suite, Microsoft Office 365, and LinkedIn for simple and secure identity management via Auth0.
Yes, we are a cyber security company and our ASM portal stores quite sensitive information (Untracked assets, Data Leaks and Security Exposures) for our customers. We take utmost care of security within our portal, perform comprehensive security reviews, etc. However, as the major security incidents, specially Twitter’s Breach and Garmin’s ransomware, clearly demonstrate that everyone need to enhance the protection of SaaS application users in order to eliminate the risk of sophisticated account takeovers and password breaches. Hence we are introducing SSO and MFA in order to make NVADR more secure and enterprise-ready.
What is SSO (Single Sign On)?
Single sign-on (SSO) is an authentication method that enables users to securely authenticate with multiple applications and websites by using just one set of credentials. SSO is a part of the broader concept of federated identity management, which allows for someone to use a single identity across multiple different systems. With SSO integration, NVADR has become more enterprise ready as it provides many benefits to organizations:
- Provides centralized control over who has access to their systems.
- Enforces better password policies and eliminate password fatigue.
- Boosts overall productivity due to faster log-ins and fewer lost passwords.
- Lowers the threat of data breaches by moving ID/authentication data off-premises.
- Combines with Risk Based Authentication (RBA).
- Provides streamlined user experience.
NVADR now supports SSO (via Auth0) and allows a user to login via account on Google Suite (Gmail), Microsoft Login and LinkedIn accounts.
What is MFA (Multi Factor Authentication)?
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) verifies a user’s identity by requiring them to provide more than one piece of identifying information. This helps in preventing malicious actors from getting account access despite having account username and password. MFA supports different authentication methods / factors such as device biometrics, SMS, Email, Puch Notifications, Authenticator Apps, etc.
NVADR now supports MFA option and user can enable it from the profile section of the portal. Once the toggle is on, NVADR will allow the user to configure the MFA on next login. As of now, we support Authenticator Apps and SMS based MFA configurations.
