What is this feature?
When this feature is enabled, we work with a third party application to require a secondary authentication to confirm the person requesting access to the Paladin Shield account is allowed to do so.
Why is this important?
By requiring your team to confirm their identity through a second step diminishes the likelihood that an outside attacker will get into the platform. Attacks such as credential stuffing, allow hackers to get into important systems with little effort. By enabling two-factor authentication for your teams Shield accounts, you are further protecting their passwords stored in their vaults as well as reinforce best practices to remain cyber safe.
Is this two factor authentication for all of my tools and logins?
This feature is to enable 2FA solely on Paladin Shield and logging into the distinct employee and administrator portals.
How do I use this feature?
Navigate to the Protections tab, unfurl the 2 Factor Authentication section and press the toggle on.
Once toggled on, you will receive a pop-up that requires you to confirm understanding of what will happen when two-factor authentication is turned on.
Directly after you will be asked to start the set up process for two-factor authentication.
Note: This protection, when enabled from the Administrator Portal, will affect all employees added to the account.
