In April 2018, IBM Cloud Platform added support for Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). This adds an extra layer of security to users’ accounts by requiring all users to provide a time-based one-time passcode in addition to their standard IBMid and password when logging in. Having this option enables IT admins to rest a little easier knowing that they’re protecting their company’s network and workloads while keeping access flexible and easy.
IBM Cloud Identity & Access Management enables you to securely authenticate users and control access to all cloud resources consistently in the IBM Bluemix Cloud Platform. This is a core capability of platform which means it's no extra cost to you. In May 2017, we are introducing a new feature for the Bluemix Cloud Platform to provide a unified experience for managing user identity and access in IBM Bluemix Cloud.
