Multi-Factor Authentication

To further enhance the security for Ahsay Backup Software, starting from version 8.3, Twilio has been integrated in Ahsay for providing Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to system and backup users. When MFA is enabled to a system or backup user account, the user is required to enter SMS passcode during each login process besides entering the Username and Password.

Configuration of Twilio on AhsayCBS

First of all, you need to create an account on Twilio's platform. After having an account, get a number from Trilio for sending out SMS message.
