Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is an extra layer of security used when logging into websites or apps to authenticate users through more than one required security and validation procedure that only they know or have access to.
Jamf Pro is the Enterprise Mobility Management software that can manage an organization's Apple Ecosystem. Acceptto integrates with Jamf Pro to improve the security of users' logins into the Jamf Pro through its Intelligent SSO-MFA solution.
