Multi-factor authentication (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.
- 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.
