MFA for On-Prem, including RSA SecurIDS

The Okta On-Prem MFA agent (formerly named the RSA SecurID agent) acts as a RADIUS client and communicates with your RADIUS enabled on-prem MFA server, including RSA Authentication manager for RSA SecurIDs. This allows your organization to leverage second factor challenges from a variety of on-premises multifactor authentication tools.

Note: If you are currently using theRSA SecurID agent (v. 1.1.0 or below) you should upgrade to the latest version of the On-Prem MFA agent at your earliest convenience. For the latest version and version history, see Okta On-Prem MFA Agent Version History.
