Ensure Secure PeopleSoft Access Using Multi Factor Authentication

Zero Trust Enforcement to Combat Modern Security Threats

User Identity and access management has become the new perimeter

As organizations expand application access beyond their firewall, hackers are capitalizing on the ease of access and targeting users for their login credentials. In today’s landscape, using a single layer of authentication is not enough.

Adding multi factor authentication to PeopleSoft is recommended. However, integrating PeopleSoft and MFA security solutions is challenging. Without an integration, deployment rules are static and force challenges unnecessarily – creating user pushback. To properly align multi factor authentication deployment with a level of access risk, an integration is recommended.

Key Challenges

Integrating a 3rd party MFA security solution with PeopleSoft requires custom development to integrate at front door login. Custom development can delay deployment, increase the solutions total cost of ownership, and pose challenges down the road as updates are made to PeopleSoft.
With a custom integration, MFA solutions are typically only enforced at application login – and arbitrarily enforced every time a user attempts to log in. This blanketed approach can be seen as excessive by end-users who are only trying to perform low-risk tasks or are already on a corporate network.
Worn down by arbitrary and excessive MFA security solution challenges, end-users will often push back against the added step multi factor authentication requires in an otherwise smooth user experience (especially for organizations with SSO). This “MFA Fatigue” can lead to application avoidance and task abandonment.

Why Appsian

With the majority of Oracle ERP customers recently experiencing a breach, it has become evident that verifying identity and access management are significant challenges. In order to safeguard these systems from the myriad of internal and external threats that try to exploit them, organizations must enhance their Identity and Access Management Controls. Appsian quickly integrates existing multi factor authentication solutions with PeopleSoft – allowing contextual enforcement. Context-aware MFA enforcement matches risk with security, delivering an additional (user-friendly) authentication layer.

Key Features

Adaptive MFA Challenge Enforcement

Customers can dynamically deploy MFA challenges based on the context of identity and access management. For example, customers can require an MFA challenge when an employee is accessing PeopleSoft from a remote IP address or after business hours. This flexibility can reduce the disruption of multi factor authentication as the level of risk can be aligned to the security challenge.
