While contextual authentication is seen as complementary to active and explicit authentication factors today, Ping Identity expects things to change in the future. We see contextual authentication becoming the norm and explicit authentication used less frequently.
This white paper proposes best practices for customer and enterprise deployments of step-up multi-factor authentication (MFA). It explores a risk-based approach that combines dynamic step-up authentication with passive contextual mechanisms, such as geolocation and time of day, for the optimal combination of cost-effectiveness, usability and security.
