    Microsoft Authenticator is a multifactor app for mobile devices that gives employees easy, secure access to online accounts, providing multi-factor authentication for an extra layer of security.

    Passwords can be forgotten, stolen, or compromised. With Authenticator, your phone provides an extra layer of security on top of your PIN or fingerprint.

    Protect all of your accounts with two-step verification. The app also helps you secure all of your online accounts by using the industry standard time-based OTP (one-time password) codes.

    The RSA SecurID Suite combines the separate disciplines of access management and authentication with identity governance and user lifecycle management into one comprehensive suite. It goes way beyond the capabilities of traditional identity and access management systems by using risk analytics to provide identity and access assurance. This helps organizations solve two fundamental challenges:

    • Verifying that their users are who they say they are.
    • Providing their users with the right level of access.
