ESET Secure Authentication Cloud Early Access (ESAC EA) adds Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) to Microsoft Active Directory domains or local area network, meaning a one-time password (OTP) is generated and provided along with the generally required username and password. Or a push notification is generated and has to be approved on the user's cell phone running Android OS, iOS, or Windows once the user has successfully authenticated using their general access credentials. Or other authentication option is required.

Push notifications require Android 4.1 and later, along with Google Play services 10.2.6 and later, or iOS.
