Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
Multi-factor authentication is a security enhancement that requires users during login to provide more than one method of authentication and is typically comprised of two of the following:
Something you know (ex: a security question), something you have (ex: a separate device), and/or something you are (ex: fingerprint). MFA adds layers to your corporate IT defense system, making it far more difficult for hackers to gain access to credentials, which is currently the leading cause of data breaches. MFA is typically deployed in conjunction with other access management tools such as SSO, and WX+B Cyber can provide the insight necessary to choose the right product and combination of features to adequately protect your IT environment.
