One Identity Starling Two-factor Authentication for Active Roles

Since Active Roles manages confidential Active Directory user details in both on-premises and cloud based environments, it is appropriate and safer to have an additional security measure such as the two-factor authentication. Active Roles now supports One Identity's Starling Two-Factor Authentication service.

The Starling Two-factor authentication provides enhanced security by necessitating users to provide two forms of authentication to Active Roles, namely a user name and password combination along with a token response. The token response is collected through an SMS, Phone call, or push notification received on a physical device such as a mobile or any other device other than the browser.

Starling Two-Factor Authentication User Access template

On installing Active Roles on a computer, the Starling Join feature is included by default. The Starling Two-Factor Authentication User Access template is generated and displayed as part of the Builtin Access templates. The Starling - Two Factor Authentication User Access template provides the Active Roles users with minimal permissions that includes enabling of mobile and email property for the users.
