AuthAnvil Authentication

Leveraging Kaseya's AuthAnvil solution, MSP N-central provides enhanced security protection through a two-step validation log in process.

AuthAnvil authentication uses a combination of a PIN and a single-use password provided through a security token. The single-use password cannot be re-used and is impossible to duplicate or forge. By adding AuthAnvil authentication to an account, the user must sign in to the account with their conventional password and the AuthAnvil authentication credentials.

To use this feature, you must have an AuthAnvil profile and account configured and available for use on a security server. Before adding Two-Factor Authentication to user accounts, you must first configure MSP N-central to integrate with AuthAnvil by creating a Two-Factor Authentication Profile. The profile will include the settings to communicate with the security server; the security server will then authenticate any single-use passwords when the user account signs in.
