Multi-factor login authentication as a security option
It would be nice to be able to have a multi-factor login authentication as a security option. We have users who work in DocuWare while they are on the road and it would be nice to toggle this feature on/off per user as an extra layer of security.
Of course the security of our users is important to us.
As you have noticed, this idea still has the same status, but was not declined. That means we evaluate it regularly.
One reason why we have decided not to add this security feature yet is that we will first change the authentication flow.
As a first step, we introduced the Identity Service in the DocuWare Cloud with Version 7.3, which allows integration with Azure AD and the use of MFA there.
The next step is to force users to use SSO only. However, to ensure this, we still need to make some changes in our authentication flow.
We are also planning to bring these functions to DocuWare On-Premises.
Afterwards we will evaluate extending the login with DocuWare credentials with MFA/2FA.
We are constantly striving to improve our products and appreciate your feedback and contribution.

This is a big gap in functionality in today's security environment. 2FA is a must have for any system that holds sensitive information.

We have several clients that are already using two factor authentication and are wanting that ability with DocuWare on-premise and cloud. We are also hearing from other clients that they too need to adapt to two factor authentication due to the material and information that their Fortis/DocuWare systems are handling such as SS#, HIPAA information, FERPA, etc. This needs to be added to the road map as soon as possible.

needed onPremise too.
