The RSA SecurID® Solution is now RSA SecurID Access. We have innovated and expanded the capabilities of the world’s most widely deployed two-factor authentication solution to continue our mission of protecting your most valuable resources no matter where they are located or who is accessing them.

RSA SecurID Access delivers the same reliable and secure RSA SecurID token authentication and enterprise feature set, but now adds additional capabilities. There are more flexible options for expanding your SecurID deployment to protect cloud and mobile applications including new mobile and biometric-based authentication methods.


RSA SecurID Access starts with the RSA SecurID solution at its heart. This is the same award-winning multifactor authentication solution that is trusted by over 25,000 organizations worldwide.  Through our industry leading RSA Ready Program, over 400+ SecurID native integrations are supported and available for immediate deployment.


RSA SecurID Access comes in three packages: Base Edition, Enterprise Edition and Premium Edition.

  1. RSA SecurID Access Base Edition incorporates the RSA Authentication Manager Base License feature set.  Base Edition can be easily upgraded to the Enterprise and Premium Editions.

  2. RSA SecurID Access Enterprise Edition incorporates the RSA Authentication Manager Enterprise License feature set and, in some cases, bundles in Single Sign-On, or SSO, agents.  This allows you to extend traditional RSA SecurID authentication to protect cloud, mobile and web applications at no additional cost.

    SSO integration methods & options include: SAML 2.0 which support Browser POST, IdP-Initiated or SP-Initiated options, Trusted Headers with Reverse Proxy support and HTTP-Federation which includes Reverse Proxy, Login-form POST and user keychains (for password vaulting).

    RSA SecurID Access Enterprise customers are eligible for Single Sign-On (the SSO Agent) if all of the following statements are true:

o    You have a minimum 1,000 RSA Authentication Manager Enterprise or RSA SecurID Access Enterprise Licenses

o    You have upgraded to RSA Authentication Manager 8.2

o    You have an active RSA Authentication Manager Enterprise or RSA SecurID Access Enterprise Maintenance Contract

  1. RSA SecurID Access Premium Edition includes all the functionality of RSA SecurID Access Enterprise Edition plus a Multifactor Authentication (MFA) Service to protect cloud and SaaS applications with a variety of mobile optimized authentication methods, which include push notifications, biometrics and FIDO coupled with Identity Assurance. RSA is leading the innovation in Identity Assurance – the concept that various contextual items about a request for access such as location, device, role, and application – should be used to make real time risk-based authentication decisions. RSA is leveraging its legacy in risk-based analytics to bring this innovation to the RSA SecurID Access solution.


For more information see the RSA Authentication Manager 8.2 Release Notes or the RSA SecurID Access Planning and Implementation Guide.
