Authenticating a PC based application

L2 Linker

We have an old vertical application that can connect to a web server via https and that populates the data
in the desktop application (thick client). Mgt Team would like there to be two factor authentication. But if the thick app does not support two factor I think that's a non-starter. Or could there be some way that a legacy app not designed for two factor could still somehow leverage the firewall to require a second factor auth?

@MichaelMedwid,

You could use an authentication policy for something like this, but since this is a thick client application I'm not sure you'll actually have any luck getting the application to render the portal or not. That kinda depends on the application and how it was programmed.
