Axcient Anchor Integration with AuthPoint

Deployment Overview

This document describes how to set up multi-factor authentication (MFA) for Axcient Anchor with the AuthPoint mobile app. Because Axcient Anchor does not support SAML authentication, this integration requires users to activate an Axcient Anchor software token in the AuthPoint mobile app. Because this is a third-party software token, you cannot block users or create access policies for this application.

Axcient Anchor must already be configured and deployed before you set up MFA with AuthPoint.

  • You have an Axcient Anchor administrative account
  • The AuthPoint mobile app is installed on your mobile device
