As cyber threats continue to evolve, it has become increasingly clear that relying on just a username and password for authentication is simply not enough. This is where Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) comes in.
MFA adds an extra layer of security to your business by requiring unique ways to verify your identity. These additional factors can range from a code sent to your phone, to biometric data such as a fingerprint.
There are three key reasons why your business should adopt MFA.
Firstly, it protects you from credential theft. Even if your password is stolen, a criminal will not be able to access your accounts without passing through the extra security measures provided by MFA.
Secondly, MFA ensures that your other security tools can do their job properly. Crooks cannot use your credentials to bypass your anti-virus software and firewall, making your business more secure.
Lastly, implementing MFA can save you a lot of stress. You can stop worrying so much about your people falling for a phishing scam. Even if they do reveal their password to a scammer, your accounts are likely to remain secure due to the extra layers of authentication provided by MFA.
At this point, we recommend that all businesses adopt MFA. Our new free guide tells you all you need to know.
