Multi-Factor/2-Factor Authentication - Significantly Improve Your Security Measures

Another Means of Identification Can Make All the Difference

Let’s run through a brief scenario: against all recommendations, an employee at a small business keeps their username and password written on a sticky note stuck to the side of their workstation. One day, that sticky note turns up missing after their lunch break. As a result, what a cybercriminal or an unauthorized team member would need to access business’ resources is now floating around somewhere on a scrap of paper.

This is not the ideal situation.

There are a lot of reasons that the username/password combination is no longer effective enough.

In addition to the kind of scenario seen above, automated attacks now make it laughably easy for cybercriminals to overcome the traditional means of user authentication. If you combine this with the tendency that many users have to ignore best practices, you could have a serious access control problem on your hands.

This is Why Multi-Factor/2-Factor Authentication is Recommended

With the installation of a simple application on their mobile device, your employees could add a very simple change to their access procedures and substantially improve the security of your business and its data.

What if my employees are resistant to this?

Of course, it is understandable that your team may not be thrilled with the idea of adding an app to their personal device that is strictly for work purposes. They are certainly going to have a few questions.

That’s why we’ve put together a brief collection of questions they are likely to ask, as well as the answers we recommend you give them. Fill out the form on this page for your copy of Multi-Factor Authentication (2FA) Frequently Asked Questions now!
