Device Trust architecture

Arculix Device Trust provides intelligent multi-factor authentication (MFA) for secure workstation logins. The diagram below illustrates the sequence of Device Trust events.

  1. User logs in through the workstation. The Device Trust Agent on the workstation calls Arculix via a secure channel.

  2. Arculix queries the user directory to determine what group-based policies apply to the user.

  3. If policy dictates, Arculix invokes an MFA push notification by means of the Arculix Mobile app.

  4. Arculix sends the MFA result to the workstation via a secure channel. Depending on the MFA response, it will allow or deny user access to the workstation.
