MFA is an additional layer of security that offers greater protection against hackers.

MFA requires two different factors to verify a user. Login credentials are most commonly used in addition to accessing a passcode from another trusted device, like a mobile phone via SMS message. With MFA enabled, a hacker will be prevented from accessing your email even if your password has been compromised.

MFA authenticates with:

Something you know, like a password.

Something you have, like a trusted device.

Something you are, like biometrics and fingerprints.

Key Benefits:

 

  • Mitigates the password problem
  • Peace of mind
  • Real-time alerts
  • Secure & cost-effective
  • Dual identity check

MFA is available for most line of business applications. Find out if an app you use offers MFA: https://twofactorauth.org.
