What is Multi-Factor Authentication?

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) or as it is also known as Two Fact Authentication (2FA) is a security process that requires you the end-user to provide more than one method of authentication to verify yourself while logging on to your device. You are probably already aware of it, places like Amazon and your online banking will have some sort of MFA.

Why use Multi-Factor Authentication?

Over 80% of all hacking-related breaches are caused by stolen or weak passwords. Would a security breach cause huge issues for your company and your customers?

While working from home is becoming more popular and employees are working away from the office, businesses require more advanced MFA solutions to manage more complex access requests. 

Have you noticed too, the more passwords we need to remember the lazier our password habits become, the great thing about MFA is, it secures the environment and the people in it, as well as the devices they are using whether it is PC, Laptop or Mobile.

By putting a Multi-Factor Authenticator system in place, you are creating a layered defence. The more doors the hacker has to try and open the safe your business is. If one door is opened, the attacker has at least one more door to open before successfully breaking in.

MFA has a lot to offer if you are serious about providing the best protection for not only your business and staffs data but your client's data too. MFA is a no-brainer. If you'd like to learn more information on how MFA could benefit your business, give us a call on 01543 448702
