risk-based authentication?

We've been focusing more on stronger authentication and less on trends and risk. We do have some Splunk alerts and scripts that will alert or even automatically scramble if someone is logged in twice simultaneously from different sides of the globe, but that's not exactly what you're talking about here.

I've seen some MFA vendors roll this feature into their products. Toopher, for one, could choose when it was and wasn't necessary to prompt for MFA based on a user's usual habits.

Some discussion of it off and on at OSU but nothing concrete. It requires so much decision making about what information to use and what to do with it that I don't foresee it going anywhere for us, and lacking concrete requirements makes doing something more generic much harder for me.
