It should come as no surprise that security breaches are getting more sophisticated every day. What’s even more alarming is that they are happening more frequently and at a faster pace. To be on the defensive, companies should have an authentication strategy in place, protecting both data and end-users. In addition, companies should ensure that their authentication solution of choice can adapt to meet new and advanced types of attacks from cybercriminals.
OneLogin continually invests in innovating our authentication service to serve our customers needs. In our latest Spring ‘19 Release, we focus on delivering strong and simple authentication capabilities to empower organizations to execute on their security/authentication strategy. As the first line of defense, OneLogin’s authentication service provides security, while validating that the right person is accessing the right information. Our diverse authentication solution offers more choices and better user experience for end-users, making it easy and simple for organizations to implement, manage, and control.
What’s New in OneLogin Authentication?
More new and exciting capabilities have been added to our Authentication services:
- Multi-MFA Configuration allows administrators of an organization to define ‘multiple’ instances of an authentication factor per tenant. This is useful for customers who have to deal with multiple user communities within an organization.
- OneLogin Protect supports secure backup and restore to the same or different operating system.
- Trusted IDP now supports OpenID Connect, making it easier for organizations to extend their services to partners.
- Enhanced VLDAP support for JAMF Pro for user authentication and authorization
These authentication capabilities will be available to customers by the end of June.

Early Preview Programs
In the Spring ‘19 Release, we are pleased to announce two new Early Preview programs:
- Voice Authentication Factor
OneLogin’s Voice Authentication Factor allows users to receive phone calls to their smartphones or landline, verifying their identity during authentication to the OneLogin Portal. Voice authentication is especially useful for executives and/or users without smartphones.
Note: Additional charges will be associated with this service when it becomes generally available.
In March 2019, World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) announced WebAuthn as the official web standard for password-free login that has support from a major industry browser providers such as Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Firefox, Mobile.
OneLogin will be supporting WebAuthn to make it easy to offer user-friendly, strong authentication using a choice of authenticators such as OneLogin Protect and YubiKey, and built-in platform authenticators such as fingerprint sensors, Bluetooth, NFC, and evolving device authenticators.
