Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

The Enterprise File Fabric supports two-factor authentication. This can also be referred to as two-step verification or dual factor authentication.

2FA is a security process in which the user provides two different authentication factors to verify themselves to better protect both the user's credentials and the resources the user can access.

If 2FA is turned then users first login with their password before then being issued a secondary authentication challenge.

Two Factor Authentication can be turned on for all team users of a File Fabric by the File Fabric Administrator from the Org Policies section.

The options for 2FA are:

  • Email
  • Nominated password
  • Google Authenticator TOTP (also works with Microsoft Authenticator)

Once turned on users will have to login as normal and will then receive the second challenge. This will work from web, desktop and mobile apps.
