Secret Double Octopus versus other authentication methods

Improve your security posture

Secret Double Octopus’s secure algorithm ensures that the authentication process is safe from phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks. Other MFA solutions that are based on one-time codes, whether generated by a hardware or software token, sent in-band or out-of-band, are susceptible to phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks.

How It Works

To extend the reach of Okta Verify to enterprise desktop and domain logon, Secret Double Octopus deploys an on-premises server. Once deployed, the Octopus Authentication Server handles all the authentication magic behind the scenes, to deliver workstation MFA for both Windows and MacOS endpoints. Unlike other MFA solutions, there is no need for dedicated hardware - only the users’ mobile device.
