RSA Risk-Based Authentication

RSA Risk-Based Authentication: A powerful risk engine that transparently increases security by delivering user-friendly multi-factor authentication. Risk-Based Authentication ensures that users are who they say they are while preserving the familiar username/password login experience.

Risk-Based Authentication strengthens traditional password login by silently applying risk-based analytics. In real time, the risk engine scores each authentication request by using knowledge about the client device and analyzing the end user’s behavior.

Step-Up Authentication is needed when the risk engine deems a login attempt to be high-risk. During a “step-up” authentication challenge, users are able to provide additional proof of identity by either answering life questions or completing an on-demand (SMS) authentication.

The functionalities of Risk-Based Authentication and On-Demand Authentication are offered on a combined, lifetime license.


Secures access cost-effectively to a wide range of applications including SSL VPNs, Web Portals, Microsoft Outlook Web Access (OWA), and Microsoft SharePoint.


Provides a convenient authentication option that requires no hardware distribution or software installation to the end user’s mobile device.


Utilizes proven RSA technology that currently delivers the power of Risk-Based Authentication to 350 million users.


Increases security transparently since users authenticate via the familiar username/password login experience.

Risk-Based Authentication is a multi-factor authentication solution that strengthens traditional password-based systems by transparently assigning a risk level to each login request. A powerful risk engine evaluates each attempted login and activity in real time by tracking hundreds of risk indicators and determining the risk associated with each access request.

Risk-Based Authentication enables organizations to extend secure remote access privileges to a diverse user base and access points – both internal and external – without having to compromise on user convenience or privacy.

RSA Authentication Manager 8.0 enables Risk-Based Authentication to be deployed on a single platform with SecurID hardware and software authenticators. Balance security, cost, and convenience to achieve strong authentication that protects a wide range of users and use cases.
