What if you could better protect your custom and legacy applications against compromised credentials? Reduce the burden on your internal resources? Strengthen firewall administration? And do it all at the same time, with one solution?
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) at the network layer can help you achieve all these goals and more. Say goodbye to complex point-to-point integrations for custom and legacy apps. RSA SecurID® Access and Palo Alto Networks’ next-generation firewall bring the benefits of MFA to legacy systems, without custom coding.
With MFA, authentication happens at the network level, before access to applications and systems is granted. The firewall acts as an authentication gateway, extending MFA protection to critical older systems—challenging access requests and thwarting the use of stolen credentials. Enforcing secure access at the network level also extends authentication to isolated networks that can’t otherwise connect to identity management systems.
The result? You can prevent credential abuse, quickly provision MFA without application updates, and provide role-based identity assurance to privileged users. It’s a win all around—and both easier and more cost-effective than other approaches.
