Preventing Denial of Service ADFSFor organizations that may require 2-factor ADFSauthentication in order for them to integrate easily andquickly, the Virtual Identity Server (VIS) is essential. It iscapable of extending authentication options of yourADFS, meaning you never have to settle for a singlemethod on authenticating ADFS. By using the VIS, youcan choose from the basic ones such as the traditionalusername and password to the more advanced methodslike CAC authentication. Another reason why it becomesessential for most organizations today to use the VIS ispractically because they want to take advantage of itssecurity features.As cloud firewall, the VIS can help in preventing attacks like denial of service ADFS from takingplace. This is an attack many companies dread, especially when they implement their federationservices because it can make user accounts within your AD locked out or totally unavailable foruse. Therefore data contained in your AD and other directories will not be available to thesearching user as well. This can cause some disruptions to the daily operations of yourbusiness and this is something you never want to happen.You can prevent this from taking place simply by using the VIS that prevents denial of serviceDoS. It not only provides you with multiple methods to authenticate ADFS, it can also providethe kind and level of security you need for your Active Directory. With the VIS, you never haveto use separate programs just to acquire protection or to have something that will support 2-factor authentication. This will then save your organization with a lot of money and resources.
