Multi-Factor Authentication

HID Global enables millions of employees across the globe to securely access their work. We provide the industry’s broadest array of authentication form factors, methods and security standards to create an MFA ecosystem based on your unique business needs.

Intelligent Security for Every Application, User and Use Case

In a landscape of increasing threats and data breaches, multi-factor authentication (MFA) is the industry standard for ensuring users are who they say they are. By seamlessly combining multiple inputs: a physical token, a biometric identified, secure mobile device and something users know, MFA reduces security threats and costs, while providing a simple, tailored user experience.

From standalone to managed credentials, it’s a versatile solution that provides end-to-end security while accommodating your users’ workflow, and it steps up when you need it the most.

Passwordless Convenience

Passwords are a massive attack vector, leaving organizations vulnerable no matter how long or complex they are. The best MFA security solutions extend Zero Trust security by offering users the flexibility to authenticate in multiple ways – including without passwords. Why switch to passwordless authentication? Because it’s more secure and simpler for both users and admins, and it even lowers help desk expenses.
