If you haven’t upgraded your security, you could be making life far too easy for an intruder.

What is MFA?

MFA, or Multi-Factor Authentication, is a security measure that requires you to provide more than one form of information (at least two) to log in or access a system, device or app. This might look like a password plus a fingerprint or a password plus an SMS sent to your phone with a single-use code or a mix of all three, eg:

  • Something you know (e.g. a password or PIN)
  • Something you have (e.g. a token or smartphone)
  • Something you are (e.g. a fingerprint or facial recognition)

60% of business fail after a cyber attack. Either it’s simply too costly to survive the reputational damage is too much.

Our new free guide tells you all you need to know along with the top 6 reasons to adopt MFA in your business.

Why should you be using MFA?

The purpose of MFA is to layer up security and make it harder for cyber criminals to gain access to your systems and sensitive information. Cyber criminals are using increasingly sophisticated techniques to bypass security. The more layers or barriers you put in their way, the harder you’re making it for them to break in.

You might be thinking MFA is too complicated to use or time-consuming. Especially if you’re needing to provide multiple forms of authentication every time you access a device or app.

You may even think it’s unnecessary if you’re not accessing sensitive data but all businesses should be using MFA as it provides great protection against cyber attacks and other security threats.
