Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Delight your customers as well as workforce by providing secure, and intelligent access. Increase your login security with password policy enforcement, or introduce a passwordless or biometric Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) experience. Seamlessly activate user-friendly MFA methods such as TOTP.


Allow passwordless authentication for your workforce with the help of Fastpass.

Self-Service Credential Management

Allow users to perform self-management of their credential access and password resets by removing credential management overhead from the IT support desk.

Benefits of Workforce IAM

Centralize Access

Workforce Identity & Access Management (IAM) provides a centralized access for cloud apps and on-premises systems and apps. Centralized access policies enable SSO & MFA across all connected applications which increases the security.

Enable Secure Access

It empowers users with quick access that provides a seamless experience by strengthening authentication and authorization capabilities. Secure and manage connective APIs, whether to the cloud, SaaS, web services, microservices, or IoT.

Protect Against Breaches

Without even sacrificing security, you can extend access to a global, remote workforce with the help of workforce IAM as it protects against any breaches. To make sure that only the right users can access the right resources, you can enable multiple layers of authentication (MFA).

Increased Productivity

It increases productivity of the workforce by increasing application usage with frictionless login between apps. Self-service credential management diminishes the burden on IT to manage credentials as well as password resets.

Monitor Privileged Users

It reduces the risk of security incidents by delivering adaptive and frictionless privilege management capabilities. To administer access with unrivaled privilege granularity, you can use our WIAM model. Increase security along with preserving a positive user experience with non-intrusive privileged session monitoring.
