Multi-Factor Authentication

Info Advantage 4

Any time you’re dealing with sensitive business data, you need to elevate your security measures!

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) makes it more difficult for hackers to access your company’s data, email addresses, files, credit card info, and other personal information. It stops 99.9% of attacks.

The key attack vector that MFA aims to protect is identity-based attacks, which occur when an attacker obtains a user’s credentials to perform malicious actions. Attackers are now able to steal intellectual property, delete major pieces of systems, hold systems hostage, and carry out actions as the user. Multi-Factor Authentication solutions are applications that you can add to your IT infrastructure to increase your overall security posture It’s broken down into three major categories:

  • Something you know. (Password)
  • Something you have. (Cell Phone, Smart Card)
  • Something you are. (Fingerprint, Facial Recognition)

If you don’t believe us, even Google and Microsoft have gone on the record to talk about the benefits of MFA in this recent article from ZDNet. It can protect you from real-world attack scenarios like:

  • Email Phishing Attacks and Wire Transfers
  • Wireless Hijacking
  • Disgruntled Employees

Studies have also shown that 42% of companies have experienced ransomware attacks, 81% of data breaches involve weak or stolen credentials, exfiltration by disgruntled employees is a real issue, and careless or distracted employees can fall victim to phishing scams. It’s time to strengthen your security, streamline access, make life easier for your IT department, while also ensuring compliance. At Info Advantage, we know that implementing Multi-Factor Authentication into your own access control features is a no-brainer, especially in 2021.
