How Microsoft Intune Supports Authentication for High-Security Customers
As enterprises across the world continue to move to the cloud, security and authentication remain top of mind for IT teams. Authentication is the process of verifying a user’s identity so they can access resources securely. Microsoft Intune provides secure authentication methods for customers with high security requirements.
Authentication Challenges for High-Security Customers
High-security customers are those who have a high risk of data loss or system attack due to their industry or the type of data they are handling. As such, these customers require extra levels of authorization in order to access their systems. This could include hardware tokens, biometric scanners, or even passwords that are longer and more complex than usual.
Derived credentials, also known as second-factor authentication, are a way for high-security customers to securely authenticate using a device they already own. With this process, customers can generate one-time passwords that are used to authenticate and access their systems. This process is especially helpful for customers who do not want to carry around a hardware token or use biometric scanners for authentication.
Microsoft Intune and Derived Credentials
Microsoft Intune provides a secure and reliable way for customers to authenticate using derived credentials. Intune uses two-factor authentication to generate one-time passwords for customers. By verifying the identity of the customer, Intune ensures that only authorized users are able to access their systems.
