RSA SecurID Risk-Based Authentication is a tokenless, multi-factor enterprise authentication solution that uses risk scoring to determine that users are who they say they are while preserving the username and password login experience.

RSA SecurID Risk-Based Authentication is designed to protect access to the most common web-based applications including SSL VPN, web portals, Outlook Web Access, and more. It is transparent to end users and preserves the username and password login experience, only requiring step-up authentication when the transaction appears to be out of the ordinary for the end user. During a step-up authentication challenge, users are prompted to provide additional proof of identity by either answering life questions or completing an on-demand (SMS) authentication.
Risk-Based Authentication strengthens traditional password login by silently applying risk-based analytics. In real time, the risk engine scores each authentication request by using knowledge about the client device and analyzing the end user’s behavior.
Step-Up Authentication is needed when the risk engine deems a login attempt to be high-risk. During a “step-up” authentication challenge, users are able to provide additional proof of identity by either answering life questions or completing an on-demand (SMS) authentication.
The functionalities of Risk-Based Authentication and On-Demand Authentication are offered on a combined, lifetime license.
RSA SecurID Business Continuity Option (BCO) is a licensing feature available in RSA Authentication Manager 7.1 or higher that allows for a temporary expansion of a server license to meet an influx of remote-access users, such as during a business disruption when employees must work from home. The licensing feature can be invoked up to six times every license term, for a timeframe of 60 days each time. BCO license terms are for three years.
The Business Continuity Option expands the server license and enables a pre-defined number of RSA SecurID On-Demand Authenticators to be used. For example, a customer purchases a 1,000-seat BCO license; when the BCO option is invoked, an additional 1,000 seats of On-Demand Authenticators instantly become available. Deployment is done on-the-fly with the Self Service module in RSA Credential Manager (included) so that users can on-board themselves without overwhelming the IT help desk with requests.
