RapidIdentity MFA optimizes roaming Citrix, Microsoft, and VMware desktops by streamlining the manner in which users access and interact within various systems. With RapidIdentity MFA, authenticated access, disconnect, or logoff can be achieved with as little as a tap of an RFID device or a swipe of a finger. Users accessing virtual resources after logging on to Windows will experience seamless authenticated access. Users in shared workstation environments, such as computers on wheels will experience a secure and streamlined workflow with RapidIdentity MFA’s Shared Workstation. In environments where logging on to Windows with a personally assigned username and passwords is not possible or practical, many organizations use generic accounts that are always logged on. This process causes concern for security personnel because in the majority of cases, while secure, the systems are on the organization’s network and unauthorized access is hard if not impossible to monitor.
As users roam throughout your organization, logging in manually to every system and application is time consuming and frustrating. RapidIdentity MFA Shared Workstation with RapidIdentity MFA InstantConnect addresses security concerns, decreases access times, and increases user satisfaction by placing a secured shell around generically logged on desktops. Users requesting access to the generic desktop must first logon to RapidIdentity MFA using an approved authentication method, such as tapping a card, swiping a finger, or using any of Identity Automation’s other authentication methods. Once authenticated RapidIdentity MFA logs when and how the user access the desktop.
When used in conjunction with RapidIdentity MFA InstantConnect, RapidIdentity MFA will auto-launch and authenticate the user to the virtual desktop. Among other features, upon presentation of the resource, RapidIdentity MFA can perform SSO functions, secure access upon time-out, lock the session upon presentation of a device, disconnect the session for roaming functionality, or simply logoff.
