Security Improvements Including Multi-Factor Authentication Added to G2

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) ensures the user signing in has not stolen credentials from another user.  When MFA is enabled, the user must request a six-digit code as part of the log-in process.  A user preference determines whether the code is received by Email or in a text message.  The code is then entered and validated before the user is granted access to the Slingshot platform.  If the code is lost (e.g., caught in a spam filter), the user can request another.  After several consecutive codes are issued, without a successful sign in, the user’s account is locked and the security administrator is notified.

Improvements were also made to Slingshot’s “Single Sign On” (SSO) capability. These security enhancements will be available as part of release G2-14.2.  For more information contact sales@slingshotsoftware.com
