Hi,

Are you talking about remote login, or local?

If local, I am not sure what is being gained here, since the physical security of the office is, effectively, a second factor already - something they know, and somewhere they are.

If remote, then how are they logging in remotely?  Not directly via RDP / Port 3389 I hope - that is very insecure.

Alan.

In order to even contemplate a second factor of authentication, a single sign on in such as an AD, or use Linux samba+LDAP DC
Then you could add the second component that either uses google's .......

A finance company that wants free 2-Factor Authentication?!?! Am I the only one who sees the irony in that in the wake of the Equifax breach?

Be that as it may, WikiID might be worth a look. It is open-source and is free for 5 users: http://www.wikidsystems.com/

Pricing starts at $240 per year for 10 users beyond the 5 free users. Quite reasonable.

When ransomware hits your clients, what do you do?

MSPs: Endpoint security isn’t enough to prevent ransomware.
As the impact and severity of crypto ransomware attacks has grown, Webroot fought back, not just by building a next-gen endpoint solution capable of preventing ransomware attacks but also by being a thought leader.

You could use SmartCard Logon for Windows 7:

Would that work?

Try out Authlite. Quite flexible in use case
Its 2FA is using YubiKey Token that can go with your RDP, VPN and the basic OS login. Supports cached/offline logon too.
Its can use Google Authenticator or any that supports OATH-compliant time-based OTP token on your smart phone or tablet.

Selected the RDP as Software protection Item and everything worked

Like a Champ.

Ok, what of the options that DUO offers did you use as 2nd factor?

(by the way: the pointing wizard allows to assign points equally).
