2 FACTOR AUTHENTICATION

miniOrange 2 Factor Authentication Products ensure right set of eyes have access to your sensitive information sitting on the cloud or on-premise.

Overview

miniOrange authentication service combines something you know, or something you have with someone you are to reliably confirm your identity.

Using Two Factor Authentication:-

The most practical way to strengthen authentication is to require a second factor after the username/password stage. Since a password is something that a user knows, ensuring that the user also has something or using biometrics thwarts attackers that steal or gain access to passwords.

Traditional two-factor authentication solutions use hardware tokens (or “fobs”) that users carry on their keychains. These tokens generate one-time passwords for the second stage of the login process. However, hardware tokens can cost up to $40 each. It takes time and effort to distribute them, track who has which one, and replace them when they break. They’re easy to lose, hard to use, and users consistently report high levels of frustration with token-based systems.

Your choice of second factor

miniOrange authentication service has 15+ authentication methods.

One time passcodes (OTP) over SMS

Key Features

miniOrange Authentication service provides 15+ authentication methods and integrates with applications that do or do not support standards like SAML, OpenID, OAuth, WSFED etc. It also integrates with enterprise products that support legacy protocols like RADIUS. It also integrates with application servers like Websphere, Weblogic and Tomcat. In addition to that it integrates with Spring. It also can be used to augment authentication for products like Siteminder. Our product is available as a service on the cloud or it can also be installed on premise.

Single Sign On

miniOrange SSO (Single Sign On) product provides easy and seamless access to all enterprise resources with one set of credentials. miniOrange provide Single Sign On to any type of devices or applications whether they are in the cloud or on-premise.

Overview

miniOrange SSO server allows you to login to your applications without re-entering your credentials after you authenticate yourself into the Windows domain.

miniOrange achieves this by, installing a component on the Windows Server that, basically acts as an Identity Provider. When the user tries to access a cloud application like Salesforce, the request is sent to the miniOrange SSO Server which in turn asks the miniOrange SAML module installed in the Windows machine if the user can be logged in, and performs SSO based on the response from the module.

This, involves 3 steps basically:

  1. Enable Windows Authentication and configure SSO applications of interest in the Windows Machine.
  2. Installing the miniOrange SAML module in Windows and configuring it with the miniOrange SSO server.
  3. Add the miniOrange SAML module ( installed on the Windows Machine )as an Identity Source in the miniOrange SSO server.
