Is it possible to use RSA MFA for admin console authentication?

L0 Member

We have standardized on RSA SecurID for MFA for GlobalProtect VPN MFA, and locking down our internal network assets. I was asked if it is possible to use RSA SecurID MFA for secondary verification for admin accounts logging into our PA-820. I believe it is, but want to confirm. Is anyone doing this on their firewalls?


I tried setting the Authentication Profile for my own admin account on the firewall to the same profile used by our VPN. This is a SASL profile that authenticates against our RSA Cloud Authentication Service. It works fine for VPN, but I get "unknown user or password", specified as my authentication profile.

I have configured Azure SAML  for Admins logging into the PA.

Here is the link for RSA  MFA
