Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is the process of needing more than one piece of information to login to a secure website or service. In traditional systems, all you need to know to gain access to an IT system, is a username and password, data that can easily be hacked or stolen. With MFA there is a signicant decrease in the chance of user (and, subsequently, an organisations) data being compromised. By adding additional authentication measures cybercriminals (even when they have the right password) cannot get past the extra levels of security.
We have created a factsheet explaining what MFA is, why organisations are using it and what to consider prior to implementing it in your organisation
