Why You Need Multi-factor Authentication

Given the rising number of hacks and breaches, the majority of which occur when an unauthorized actor gets hold of an admin password, it’s become evident that the humble login method can be easily compromised. This form of ‘good enough’ security, also known as single-factor authentication, has become severely weakened in our hyper-connected world.

When passwords get stolen by sniffing, phishing, social engineering, or simply guessing techniques used by software keyloggers, the event rarely shows up in the company log files. This is the main reason why password compromise is, and will likely remain, the method of choice for hackers breaking into systems worldwide. That’s unless we strengthen our defenses.

Multifactor authentication (MFA) adds an extra layer of authentication to a login by requiring the user to utilize two out of three types of credentials before being able to access an account. The types include:

  • Something you know: personal identification number (PIN), password or a pattern;
  • Something you have: ATM card, phone, or fob;
  • Something you are: a biometric, such as a fingerprint or voice print.

In the event that the second type of authentication fails to match that of an admin’s identity, the user attempting to gain access will be locked out.

Why Use Atlantic.Net’s Managed Multi-factor Authentication?

Atlantic.Net offers its clients top quality multi-factor authentication solution in the form of a convenient single sign-on. Once cleared, the user will gain access to enterprise files and applications, both on-premise and in the cloud.

Besides verifying the identity of each user, the system will diagnose the health of each device. By establishing the presence of vital security controls and checking for out-of-date software, the system can easily block high-risk or infected devices.

Our verification process gives you control over enforcing stricter access policies, such as setting up gateways that require software updates to login. This allows you to lower your vulnerabilities and minimize access to your confidential data by people, software, and hardware.
