2-Step verification adds another layer of security that requires not only a password and user name but also a verification code to sign in to the Access administrative portal. The verification code is generated by either Authenticator or Google Authenticator. You configure 2-step verification in the Ivanti Access administrative portal.
You can enable 2-step verification only for your account. You cannot enable 2-step verification for other administrators or vice versa. If 2-step verification is enabled, you are prompted to enter your credentials and the verification code to access Access account. If the verification code is not available, you cannot sign in to the Ivanti Access administrative portal.
