To improve security when accessing a restricted console such as 'Sophos Central™,' Administrators should use Multi-Factor Authentication. Multi-Factor Authentication adds an extra layer around the traditional username and password login, thus preventing unwanted access by threat actors to your Sophos™ Central console. With Acceptto™ Multi-Factor Authentication adding that extra layer is simples and cost-effective.
This guide walks you through the following steps:
- Configure the Administrator user(s) to use Multi-Factor Authentication.
- Scan a QR code generated by Sophos with the Acceptto Mobile Application.
- Log in to Sophos Central using Multi-Factor Authentication.
Configure MFA Plugin
Step 1 - Configure MFA by first navigating to the Sophos Central admin webpage and select Global Settings on the left-hand side.
Select 'Profile & account' by clicking your Slack™ team name in the upper left.
Select Multi-Factor Authentication(MFA) from the list on the right.
Select the Administrator(s) accounts that are going to use Multi-Factor Authentication.
Step 2 - Set up Time-based One-Time Password(TOTP)
Select the Authentication type Sophos/Google Authenticator
Step 3 - Ready to use TOTP
Select the Authentication type Sophos/Google Authenticator.
Scan the QR code.
Enter the security code.
After the process is complete, all logins require a username, password, and OTP code.
