What does idemeum integrate with?

The reason we call idemeum Passwordless MFA "universal" is because it can literally protect any company resource.

Cloud applications

idemeum integrates with major identity providers, such as Azure Active Directory, Okta, Ping identity and more, to protect company cloud applications with Passwordless MFA. When users are accessing company applications, every authentication request is redirected to idemeum cloud to perform Passwordless MFA authentication.

Workstations (Windows and macOS)

idemeum offers a desktop application for Windows and macOS operating systems. Once this application is installed and paired with mobile identity, it allows users to login into desktop with idemeum Passwordless MFA instead of typing a password. idemeum supports domain-joined machines as well as local accounts.

Network infrastructure

idemeum offers Radius cloud infrastructure for your tenant so that you can easily integrate network devices such as Wi-Fi controllers, Firewalls and VPN gateways to authenticate users with passwordless MFA instead of passwords.

Legacy on-premises applications

idemeum can protect legacy on-premise application with Passwordless MFA with its LDAP Proxy if the application involves LDAP authentication with downstream directory. For applications that do not use LDAP authentication, please refer to our secure remote access blog that details other integration techniques like header-based JWT and form-based vault autofill to support on-premise applications.

For below example, when user is accessing on-premise application that uses LDAP authentication, the request is first redirected to idemeum LDAP proxy. The proxy will lookup the user in the LDAP directory server and then challenge user with Passwordless MFA instead of username and password.

Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) access

idemeum protects remote windows desktop access (RDP) with Passwordless MFA. idemeum supports RDP passwordless access via its desktop application that performs virtual smart card authentication.

When admins access remote windows desktop / server using  RDP client, idemeum app will challenge user with Passwordless MFA. the user will get authenticated against domain controller using virtual smart card and RDP session is established with the desktop / server.

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

idemeum protects virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) access with Passwordless MFA.

When admins access virtual desktop using VDI client, idemeum app will challenge user with Passwordless MFA. the user will get authenticated against domain controller using virtual smart card and VDI session is established with the virtual desktop. idemeum also supports Radius protocol to access virtual desktop using passwordless MFA.


idemeum Passwordless MFA can eliminate passwords from single sign-on cloud applications, legacy on-premise applications, VPN, Wi-Fi, CLI admin tools, RDP and desktop workstations. Embrace the security of unphishable authentication.
