Security Leader's Guide to Multi-factor Authentication

Multi-factor authentication delivers stronger security against threats

 

According the latest Verizon DBIR, 81% of breaches in the enterprise were a result of weak or stolen credentials. And many, if not all, of them could have been prevented with a stronger authentication method.

 

By combining something your users know with something they have or are, multi-factor authentication (or MFA) provides a stronger level of security. Using MFA makes it more difficult for hackers to steal credentials or use brute force and discretionary attacks to breach your systems.

 

Stepping up multi-factor authentication with a risk-based approach using passive contextual authentication takes your enterprise to the next level, providing an even stronger layer of security, plus improved user experience and increased cost-effectiveness.
