80% of Security Breaches Involve Compromised Passwords
How Can You Protect Your Business?
As businesses continue to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, added security measures must be put in place for VDI environments.
The traditional password nomenclature as we once knew it is a thing of the past. The information we keep online is too important to only safeguard with a single string of characters. Our security methods must evolve.
Two-Factor Authentication: The Basics
We’ve seen this evolution begin over the last decade or so. Users and system administrators have gradually moved beyond passwords to implement complex, dynamic approaches to security like zero-trust architectures. In the past, one only needed a password to gain access. Now, administrators and users can use a combination of tools and policies that allow seamless authentication while still safeguarding against the most common types of attacks.
What is MFA?
Multifactor authentication (MFA) is a security system that requires more than one method of authentication from independent categories of credentials to verify the user’s identity for a login or other transaction. Multifactor authentication combines two or more independent credentials: what the user knows as a “Password”, what the user has, a “Security Token” and/or what the user is “Biometric Verification”.
The goal of MFA is to create a layered defense and make it more difficult for an unauthorized person to access a target, such as a physical location, computing device, network, or database. If one factor is compromised or broken, the attacker still has at least one more barrier to breach before successfully breaking into the target. In the past, MFA systems typically relied upon two-factor authentication.
Sentia offers a complete turn-key implementation service that allows your company to have a secure two-factor or multi-factor authentication system up in running in a short timeframe.
