Multi-factor Authentication Overview

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a security mechanism to build stronger authentication into the Cornerstone CSX standard login process.

MFA enhances the security of user accounts by requiring the user to provide two different forms of authentication before they can access their account.

Prerequisites

Users who are required to log in with MFA must use a mobile device, such as a smartphone, with a virtual authenticator app that supports the time-based one-time password (TOTP) algorithm.

Some popular authenticator apps include Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, Okta Verify, and many others available in app stores.

Users who are required to log in with MFA must register a device.
