Adaptive Authentication

Adaptive authentication is a dynamic type of multi-factor authentication that can be configured and deployed in a way that the identity service provider (IDP) system will select the right multiple authentication factors depending on a user’s risk profile and behavior. Unlike with MFA, adaptive authentication is more dynamic, and security requirements can change according to the user role, location, or the situation. Since every employee, vendor, or partner has different access needs, capabilities, and endpoints in a given login session, IT security policies must be adaptable.
