Multi-Factor Authentication Using IBM Security Verfiy for IBM Spectrum Fusion

Draft Redpaper, last updated 8 Nov 2021

Storage is where the data resides and compute is where the applications process the data. In hyper converged systems both storage and compute are converged and hence it is critical to have an enhanced security posture for such infrastructure tups. Deployment of a Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) solution with hyper converged system is one such key security features where access to such systems should mandate multi factor authentication to its consumers. In this paper we describe the detail integration of IBM Spectrum Fusion Hyper Converged Infrastructure (HCI) with IBM Security Verify which ... [more]
