Why you need MFA

Passwords are the least secure form of authentication

Even though passwords are the most common form of authentication they are also unfortunately the least secure.  Passwords are easily compromised and are often forgotten.

Two-factor authentication (2FA) adds an extra layer of security.

2FA requires the user to provide two forms of verification to prove that it is the right person accessing the account. This allows us to improve the security of traditional password authentication by adding a second factor to the authentication stage. A combination of any the following types of authentication can be used to provide 2FA.

  • Something you know (e.g password)
  • Something you have (e.g token)
  • Something you are (e.g fingerprint)

Why Choose OvertMFA?

Secure & Affordable

With staff and students requiring access to an ever growing number of systems and cloud-based applications, users find themselves juggling far too many usernames and passwords.

Wouldn’t it be great if your users only had to remember one set of credentials giving them one-click access to all the apps they need, from any device, securely?

At the same time, the institution benefits by helping to reduce helpdesk calls and costs by simply empowering users to reset and manage their own passwords.

Secure your institution with a fresh look at password processes and accountability, all within your Access Management and secure single sign-on environment, with our first class solution.

OvertMFA Integrates with anything

OvertMFA was built with the education sector in mind. We have made sure that it integrates with all the important applications that you would like to use it with, such as:

Identity Provider

You can integrate OvertMFA into your Identity provider

(such as Shibboleth) this allows you to provide MFA to all of your federated resources and any resources that are protected by your IdP


If you are allowing external users to access your VPN and gain access to your internal network, you want to make sure you make that login as secure as possible. Overt MFA can provide 2FA for your VPN connections.


You are able to provide MFA to your desktops. This allows you to secure access to your local machines so that you can make certain that it is the correct user logging into that machine. 

But that's not all, Overt MFA also integrates with much more, such as:

  • Moodle
  • Wordpress
  • ADFS
  • PAM
  • Apache & NGINX
  • LDAP
  • FreeRadius
  • Your custom application
