Microsoft Authenticator is a multifactor app for mobile devices that gives employees easy, secure access to online accounts, providing multi-factor authentication for an extra layer of security.

Passwords can be forgotten, stolen, or compromised. With Authenticator, your phone provides an extra layer of security on top of your PIN or fingerprint.

Protect all of your accounts with two-step verification. The app also helps you secure all of your online accounts by using the industry standard time-based OTP (one-time password) codes.

The Octopus Passwordless Enterprise™ technology provides secure passwordless authentication with a unified user experience from workstation to cloud, covering all Enterprise use cases including remote access, cloud access, privileged accounts, legacy applications and SaaS services.

The Octopus Authenticator “touch and go” experience means that users will never have to create, remember or change another password while dramatically reducing operational and support costs.
