CloudNine is updating the login process to CloudNine Review with a multifactor authentication application from the company Auth0. This application will allow you to verify your identity through an app or text.
What is Multifactor Authentication
Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) is an authentication method that requires the user to provide two or more verification factors to gain access to a resource such as an application, online account, or a VPN. MFA is a core component of a strong identity and access management (IAM) policy. Rather than just asking for a username and password, MFA requires one or more additional verification factors, which decreases the likelihood of a successful cyber-attack.
How does Auth 0 work
Auth0 Guardian is a mobile app that can deliver push notifications to a user’s pre-registered device (typically a mobile phone or tablet) from which a user can immediately allow or deny account access via the press of a button. It can also generate one-time passwords if that factor is preferred. Instead of integrating with each vendor-specific push notification service.
Auth0 push notifications are implemented using AWS Simple Notification Service (SNS) which handles the vendor-specific integration.
The push factor is offered with the Guardian mobile app, available for both iOS and Android. In addition, the technology is also available as Guardian SDK which can be used in custom mobile applications to act as a second factor push responder. **
