Sep 29, 2022 8:36:17 AM / by Angel Belford posted in mfa, Security, Multi-Factor Authentication

Did you know that 99.9% of account hacks could have been blocked by MFA? Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a layered approach to securing data and applications where a system requires a user to present a combination of two or more credentials to verify a user’s identity for login. Enable Multi-factor authentication to increase security because even if one credential becomes compromised, unauthorized users will be unable to meet the second authentication requirement and will not be able to access the targeted physical space, computing device, network, or database.
