Article summary

What is Axiad AirLock?

Axiad AirLock is a client that accelerates and enforces the rollout of MFA on Windows machines by ensuring you have a valid authenticator at login. It sends users without an authenticator, or with an authenticator that is about to expire, to a locked-down Unified Portal experience, where they can resolve their specific condition before they can access the normal desktop environment.

How is It Useful?

Axiad AirLock empowers your Windows users to self-enroll their initial MFA device, and if they need to troubleshoot their service, it walks them through issue remediation processes to return them to normal service. 

How Does AirLock Work?

Based on a set of rules, Axiad AirLock determines whether a user requires self-service, or whether they can access the normal desktop environment. If the rules indicate the user requires self-service, AirLock automatically redirects the user to a locked-down Unified Portal experience to resolve their specific condition before allowing them access to their normal environment.

What Axiad Cloud Packages Require It?

NOTE

Axiad AirLock is an optional service for Windows machines. It is available, but not required, for all packages.

Can I Automatically Deploy the Installer? 

Yes. Deploy the installer with GPOs, script, or any third-party package deployment solution.

Axiad provides an administrative template (ADMX) during your initial configuration, and you can use it to automatically configure Axiad AirLock options.

NOTE

  • Axiad AirLock supports only standard MSI configuration options.

  • Axiad AirLock is only available for Windows machines.
