OpenOTP Windows Login & RDS

OpenOTP Windows Logins

Secure Windows Login & RDS
with Multi Factor Authentication (MFA)

Add Multi-Factor Authentication for Microsoft Servers, Remote Desktop & App logins. Enjoy enhanced security, even for offline logins (using our OpenOTP Token app or FIDO2).

As businesses increasingly rely on Microsoft Remote Desktop & Services to facilitate remote access to enterprise systems and shared applications, ensuring robust security measures is paramount.

By integrating MFA into your authentication process, you fortify your RDS environment against unauthorized access attempts and mitigate the risks associated with compromised credentials.

This additional security layer not only enhances the overall security posture of your organization but also instills confidence in users accessing critical resources remotely. With MFA in place, you can effectively safeguard sensitive data and maintain compliance with industry regulations, providing peace of mind in an increasingly interconnected digital landscape.

Secure Windows Login & RDS with Multi Factor Authentication

RCDevs provides a Windows Credential Provider (CP) for Windows integrations. Our OpenOTP CP is your additional layer of protection for Windows login, remote access with Remote Desktop login & RDS.

Our latest version of OpenOTP CP supports both OTP and FIDO2 authentication mechanisms.
Any OpenOTP authentication method like Push Login, Yubikey, Hardware & software token, FIDO2 (except in RDS) is supported.

Our Credential Provider works in full AD environments but also in infrastructures without AD. Accounts can be separated from your AD (like in an OpenLDAP) and still be managed centrally.

For Desktops & Laptops
Unlike any other MFA vendor, RCDevs supports MFA login, even for Windows users working offline, without access to the Internet or office. The unique capability is based on the RCDevs intelligent Credential Provider plugin installed on Windows endpoints as local authentication agents, providing an added layer of security to both Windows domain authentication and local machine access. When working online, users can authenticate with any preferred 2FA method (i.e. the convenient mobile app-based push authentication). When offline, the agents will automatically initiate offline login where users are presented with a QRCode that will generate an OTP for the session once scanned with the free OpenOTP Token mobile app.
With RCDevs Windows Login one can offer true enterprise grade MFA for Windows access with confidence, without risk of needing to revert back to username/password login as soon as network connectivity goes out or communication with authentication backends fail.

Completely integrated with Active Directory users, groups and policies.
For Local Users and Computers Out of Domain
Configure RCDevs OpenOTP servers and OpenOTP Credential Provider for Windows to authenticate local users using 2FA and for Windows on a computer out of the domain. Both scenarios require an LDAP server to store user metadata (Token metadata needs to be stored on a user account in WebADM even for local account authentication).

First, you need to configure the smart card through your MFA setup. Check the configuration documentation for smart card logins with RCDevs Security Solutions. After configuring, insert your smart card in the card reader. If the card is detected and the stored certificate can be used for logon, a new credential tile for the smart card will be prompted. You can select it and enter your PIN code. You will be logged in.
