Secure your Workday deployment

Workday is at the core of your business - protect your investment. Password spray, or “brutespray,” attacks are commonly used by hackers to penetrate systems and gain unauthorized access to accounts. Multi-factor authentication and single-sign on using SAML are critical first steps in securing your Workday deployment against these attacks.

Protect Workday with Multi-factor authentication

Workday asserts that Multi-Factor Authentication is a Must-Have for all users. Secure access to company data and employees’ PII anytime, anywhere while preserving the speed and fluidity that brought you to Workday in the first place.

As a Workday Certified Partner, OneLogin seamlessly integrates with Workday to provide strong, risk-based MFA for an additional layer of security that won’t slow down your business or burden your users.



  • Move beyond the password

    Passwords are the weak link in your security chain. Reinforce traditional passwords with more secure authentication factors.

  • Contextual security won’t slow you down

    Adaptive Multi-Factor Authentication uses risk analysis powered by machine-learning and customizable access policies to require MFA only in high-risk situations.

  • Biometrics authentication for ultimate security

    Login to Workday using biometric factors including fingerprints and Apple Face ID.



  • Simple user administration

    Administrate from anywhere with our responsive, web-based admin portal. Built-in automation, best practices, and training are provided — no servers or computer science degrees required.

  • Deployments measured in minutes, not months

    Implement and roll out to users rapidly with templatized solutions.

  • Flexible factors for easy authentication

    Use authentication factors including OneLogin Protect, the enterprise-grade MFA iOS & Android app, one-time SMS codes, and phone call-based voice authentication.

The Workday recommended security strategy

Workday deploys industry-leading safeguards and continuously monitors to protect your most sensitive data; but when it comes to authentication, Workday strongly recommends going beyond their basic out-of-the-box authentication by adding multi-factor authentication (MFA) and single sign-on (SSO).
