Protect Your Atlassian Suite With Two-Factor Authenticator
January 4, 2018 | by Timothy Chin | Posted In Atlassian
Are you using old authentication methods that make your account information vulnerable to security threats? Gain control over who can access your Atlassian tools with Go2Group’s Two-Factor Authenticator app for your Atlassian Suite.
The app is compatible with Jira. It is easy to install and integrate, simple and user-friendly, and has no hidden costs. In addition to using your credentials – a username and password – Two-Factor Authenticator also authenticates every login with a Time-based One-Time Password (TOTP), which is generated using applications on your registered computer or mobile device. Install and activate the Two-Factor Authenticator app as described in our user guide.
Three simple steps to authenticate your login
- Get started by installing a compatible app on your smartphone, PC, or other device. You can find a list of MFA-compatible applications here.
- You receive an email with a QR code when you were first added to Jira. Once you have scanned this QR code into your application of choice, the TOTP will be generated for you. It is valid for only a few minutes.
- Instantly login to Jira using your username, password, and the generated token. The token tab is activated when you enter your username. Enter the code to complete the safe and secure login.
Why do you need Two-Factor Authenticator?
Security based on TOTP: You can use a Time-based One-Time Password (TOTP) that is generated every time you want to login to Jira. Other than using your username and password, you secure access by using a unique token, which is valid for only a few minutes.
Easy installation with no hidden costs: You can easily find the app on the Atlassian Marketplace. Raise an issue on Go2Group’s Service Desk to generate the licence. Follow the instructions in the users guide to complete installation. You get instant access to the app, which is not based off any other solution or service.
Supports different authenticator applications: The server-based app is based on open standard RFC6238, which defines how a unique token is generated and consumed. It supports different authenticator apps so you can choose which authenticator fits your needs and infrastructure.

We are constantly working to better the app for your Atlassian Suite and will soon introduce features such as HMAC-based One-time Password (HOTP), a customized login page, SMS gateway, Geo IP checking, CAPTCHA, and more. Get hold of the Two-Factor Authenticator app right away!
