Mainframe applications were written decades ago in a safer time. Now, those eight character passwords are too flimsy. You need multifactor authentication to keep up.
This white paper explains how you can provide the strongest possible authentication for your mainframe systems—without any risk or disruption to your current business processes.
- Why it’s time to break the status quo and change your weak eight character passwords for mainframe access
- How to leverage 14 different authentication methods for mainframe access—without rewriting any code
- What to look for in a multifactor authentication vendor
Mainframe Application (MFA) combines multiple identity sources as a way to authorize access. The most effective MFA solutions combine at least two of the following three types of identity sources:
- Something you know, such as a PIN code or password.
- Something you have, such as a key card, phone, or token.
- Something you are, such as a fingerprint, retina scan, voice recognition, or facial recognition.
By requiring at least two of these three identity sources, you greatly strengthen your authentication requirements and reduce the risk of a security breach.
