HID DigitalPersona Multi-Factor Authentication Software

The HID DigitalPersona industry-leading multi-factor authentication software offers a new way to provide authentication services to users. Whereas traditional 2FA/MFA solutions are stuck on “what you have/what you know”, DigitalPersona leverages an array of easily deployable authentication methods to access public and corporate network resources. Enterprise users can quickly and easily gain access to their cloud applications, such as Microsoft 365, VPNs, corporate networks, Windows desktops, Citrix applications and more. Consumers can seamlessly confirm their identity and authenticate transactions.

Balancing security and usability, HID DigitalPersona employs one of the widest arrays of authentication factors in the industry.
