MFA Windows Logon

Secure Windows sessions online and off-line with a flexible MFA

TrustBuilder.io MFA for Windows Logon allows a user to open a Windows session using TrustBuilder.io MFA mobile app. When the user logs in to his Windows system, he is prompted for secondary approval, thus enhancing security.

Why use TrustBuilder.io MFA for Windows Logon?

The workstation is one of the most sensitive items in terms of security of IT Systems. It gives direct access to all locally stored and unprotected cloud assets. It can also be an enrolled device that grants access to protected data and services, in combination with a PIN code. That is why the process to log into the workstation – Windows Logon – raises high security concerns.

Insecure passwords

Even strong passwords are weak and certainly not up to the task of protecting your most precious assets

Vulnerable shared workstations

A multi-user workstation is easily accessible to everyone and therefore requires a high level of security

Unsecured remote access

The lack of remote access security is an easy way for hackers to take control of the system and access data in a completely transparent way

Picture Windows Logon as the front door to your data. Protecting this front entrance with a MFA solution is crucial, but it will not prevent malicious people from getting through the window. That’s why inWebo recommends to encrypt all data stored locally as an extra security.

Your Windows password is the first step in this double authentication (MFA) and is therefore crucial to ensure the security of your account, regardless of the PC you are logging into or the applications, settings and services you are using while logged in.

What use cases are covered to protect your Windows account?

Standard authentication

After entering its Windows credentials, the user will be able to securely authenticate to its Windows account via a push notification on its mobile Authenticator application.

Offline authentication

In offline mode, the user has two options to access its Windows session: generate a scratch code with Authenticator mobile app or request a code from the administrator/help desk directly from the Windows login portal.

Authentication without smartphone

The user will be able to request a code from his administrator/helpdesk directly from the Windows login portal simply by selecting “I forgot my device / I’m offline”. He will then be provided with a scratch code to open his Windows session.

Users can generate scratch codes completely independently from their Authenticator app (on an enrolled device) by going to the “My Desktops” section and clicking on “Reveal Code” on that desktop.
