The system integrates with Biometric Devices for multi-factor authentication. Currently, the system supports two types of biometric authentication devices available to securely login as a user. These are the Mantra MSF100 and the Morpho 1300 E3. It requires two scans to be enrolled after the user attempts their first login configured with this type of MFA. With every other login attempt the fingerprint is scanned and validated for successfully accessing the system.
