Implementing 2FA/MFA with Syncplicity

This topic describes the options to implement two-factor authentication (2FA)/multi-factor authentication (MFA) within Syncplicity if single sign-on (SSO) is enabled.


For details on user authentication, see About user authentication.

For details on configuring SSO, see Configuring single sign-on.


By enabling SSO, Syncplicity authenticates your company users via your IdP, including any 2FA/MFA configured in your IdP.  If your SSO currently requires specific user authentication, Syncplicity will support/utilize the same requirements, such as: 

  • User name
  • Password
  • RSA SecureID

Mobile devices with no SSO

There are two scenarios that can be used to implement 2FA/MFA for your mobile device users that are not SSO enabled.

  • Scenario 1: If you are using Mobile device management (MDM) to monitor, manage, and secure your employees' mobile devices, then your company's MDM solution should be capable of implementing 2FA/MFA on mobile devices.
  • Scenario 2: If your employees' mobile devices are unmanaged (for example, their personal devices), your admin can use a Syncplicity mobile setting policy to set a second authentication step (2FA). This setting would force your mobile device users to additionally enter their security PIN/passcode. 

For details on the mobile security policies, see the article Mobile security policies
