Microsoft ADFS (Active Directory Federation Services) have been the mainstay of many organisations looking to add secure authentication to multiple applications in a Microoft-centric environment. With the move to Microsoft Entra based solutions a number of organisations are finding themselves looking for an alternative that is simpler to deploy and provides support for both cloud and legacy on-premise application as well as securing the Windows Desktop logon.

MyID MFA comes with a built-in identity provider for Windows that provides a modern and easy to deploy alternative to ADFS. By supporting a wide range of authenticators, include FIDO passkeys, and standard protocols such as OpenID Connect and SAML, MyID MFA is a natural successor to ADFS.

Leave the Server Behind: Eliminate the need for dedicated ADFS servers, slashing costs and simplifying setup. MyID MFA integrates seamlessly with your existing infrastructure, minimizing deployment friction.

Security Redefined: Centralize control, enforce robust access policies, and leverage multi-factor authentication for ironclad protection. MyID MFA goes beyond ADFS, offering:

  • Adaptive Authentication: Tailor access based on risk, user, and application for unparalleled granularity.
  • Conditional Access Boss: Grant access only if specific criteria are met, like device security posture or location.
  • Biometric Bliss: Add fingerprint or facial recognition for next-level convenience and security.


Frequently Asked Questions

What is means for IT Teams?

Via standard federation protocols such as OpenID Connect and SAML, MyID MFA can provide identity and authentication services to multiple 3rd party applications, enabling IT teams to centrally manage strong authentication and replace ADFS for both on-premise and cloud applications

Bring your own credentials! – by supporting both inbound and outbound federation, the MyID IDP can enable organisations with existing credentials (such as Microsoft or Google) to be used to access MyID MFA protected applications. For those in a country with Government issued credentials, MyID MFA can be configured to support use of nationally issued credentials to access locally protected IT applications.

By Working with existing infrastructure and avoiding the need for complex to deploy ADFS servers, MyID MFA can keep things secure and simple to manage.  Unlike many third-party solutions, MyID MFA works with the user data you already have, avoiding the need for data synchronization.

What it means for End Users?

One simple means of strong authentication for accessing multiple applications.  A common and secure authentication experience across multiple applications makes users lives easier

Self-help – easy to use self-service features allow users to get up and running again quickly maintaining their high degrees of service and system access.

What is means for organizations?

Easily add stronger authentication to cloud and on-premise applications as well as Windows Desktop logon, providing effective protection against the number one cause of data breach – compromised user credentials

Choose from the widest range of authenticators available, enabling organizations to pick the best balance of security and cost that fits their needs, ranging from OTP over SMS, through App based OTP, push notifications, syncable FIDO passkeys on mobile devices all the way up to high security phishing-resistant device bound FIDO passkeys on dedicated hardware devices.
