DXC Global Pass Multifactor Authentication (MFA)


DXC Technology provides a Multifactor Authentication (MFA) service to secure many corporate tools and sites, such as MyWorkStyle, Office365 and ESS/MSS Portal. The MFA service uses Symantec VIP multifactor authentication (MFA), and is easy to use with one-click mobile and desktop options to hold the MFA credentials.

Getting ready to use VIP MFA

Follow these two easy steps to set up MFA:

Step 1. Download a credential

You can either download a credential onto a Mobile App or a Desktop App. Setting up a Symantec VIP credential on your mobile device gives DXC no control over or access to your mobile device.


While the preferred authentication option is to use a mobile app, it is recommended you also download a Desktop App. This will give you the flexibility to choose which method you would like to use at any time. For example, you could use the desktop app to generate a code if you do not have access to your mobile and likewise if your PC is unavailable for any reason you can use your mobile app to generate a code and access company resources.


Follow the instructions in the table below to install VIP Access and download a credential on your mobile (listed below) or desktop (listed below right). After you install VIP Access, complete Step 2 to register the credential.
