Add an authenticator

You add authenticators so that you can add them to authentication policies. An authenticator typically defines one authentication method, such as a password (for example, a
Cylance
console password) or a connection to a third-party for authentication like
Active Directory
,
Okta
, or
Ping Identity
.  You add them to authentication policies to specify the types of authentication that administrators must complete to sign in to the
Cylance
console and users must complete to activate
Cylance Endpoint Security
apps or agents (for example, the
CylancePROTECT Mobile
app or
CylanceGATEWAY
). You can combine multiple authenticators in an authentication policy to provide multiple authentication steps. For example, you can combine the Enterprise authenticator with a one-time password prompt in a policy to require users to authenticate with both their work or
Cylance
console password and a one-time password.
If you add a SAML authenticator, download a copy of the signing certificate for your IDP.
