Once you have logged in either with your username and password or via Google or MS SSO and been successfully authenticated, you will be logged into your Elastio Tenant account.

Note: In the Account Settings of you Tenant you can enable the Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) option wto add another layer of security on top of the login credentials. You can enable the MFA option at your first login or at any point later.

After logging into your Elastio Tenant account, you can proceed by inviting team members to your tenant and deploying Elastio to your AWS account.
