With organisations forced to adopt remote work policies and procedures, the ability to maintain strict authentication measures into critical business applications like PeopleSoft has never been more important. Many are turning to Adaptive Multi-Factor Authentication to be the primary strategy.
An adaptive MFA solution is built on zero-trust principles, which dictates that no access is trusted by default. By leveraging contextual attributes (IP origin, time of day, whether the device used meets your security policy), organisations can adapt their authentication challenges to accurately reflect the level of risk (high and low) a user’s session might pose. Thus, either providing additional authentication steps to high privilege users or limiting challenges for low-privilege users performing typical self-service transactions. Using an adaptive MFA is the best way organisations can maintain strong authentication strategies while limiting user friction and push-back.
