About 
BlackBerry 2FA

BlackBerry 2FA
 provides users with two-factor authentication to your organization’s resources. It allows you to use your users 
iOS
 and 
Android
 devices as the second factor of authentication to verify their identity when they connect to your organization’s resources.
If you're new to thinking about this type of security, two-factor authentication simply means that you require a second type (factor) of authentication from users in addition to a password when they connect remotely. This type of authentication is commonly used when you have a VPN. Users log into the VPN on their laptop with a password. After the password is verified, 
BlackBerry 2FA
 sends a notification to the user's 
iOS
 or 
Android
 device. The user must tap Allow on the device within a number of seconds or the connection is terminated. Users don't need to open an app or take actions on their mobile device before logging into the VPN, they just need to respond to the device notification when it is received.
You manage 
BlackBerry 2FA
 from the 
BlackBerry UEM
  management console. You can also install a 
BlackBerry 2FA
 server on your network. The 
BlackBerry 2FA
 server allows you to leverage services such as a VPN gateway or REST endpoint to provide users with access to those resources.
