ParklandOne - What is Multifactor Authentication (MFA)?

"ParklandOne" refers to your digital credentials for the College. It encompasses your Parkland username, password, and multifactor authentication (MFA). ParklandOne account management is powered by a system called Okta.

MFA, sometimes referred to as two-factor authentication or 2FA, is a security enhancement that allows you to present two pieces of evidence, also known as your credentials, when logging in to an account. MFA credentials fall into any of these three categories: something you know (like your ParklandOne username and password), something you have (like a mobile phone), or something you are (like your fingerprint). Please note that fingerprints and other biometrics will not be required for authentication to Parkland College systems. MFA is one of the best ways to protect against remote attacks such as phishing, credential exploitation, and other attempts to takeover your account.

Parkland requires the use of MFA for most services and your settings are configured within your ParklandOne account. It utilizes a system called Okta. Okta provides a robust MFA security platform that will keep Parkland's network, data, and users safer from the threat of phishing and cyberattacks.
