Managing risk factors

Risk factors are optional features in authentication policies that provide a way to balance the level of authentication based on risk. When a user is in a trusted browser or network, they can experience easier access to the services they need, but you can apply a more stringent authentication policy in other circumstances.
Risk factor
Browser detection
This risk factor asks users to establish a reference of trust between the browser and 
Enterprise Identity
 the first time that they open a browser. After the trust is established, subsequent logins can use a simpler authentication level. Users can view and remove trusted browser entries in 
BlackBerry UEM Self-Service
Network detection
This risk factor assesses whether a user's app or browser is connected to the same network as the 
BlackBerry UEM
 server. If it's not, a higher authentication level can be applied. This risk factor can allow users to sign in more easily to certain services when they are on the work network. For more information about configuring this risk factor, see Configure the network detection risk factor.
If you want to disable network detection globally, you can log in to the 
Enterprise Identity
 console and turn off Work Network Detection in the UEM tenants list.
You can't enable the network detection risk factor in 
BlackBerry UEM Cloud
