Benefits of Multifactor Authentication (MFA/2FA)
Your password – it’s arguably the most common security measure available and this makes it particularly vulnerable to security flaws.
The generally accepted method is for a person to use a password that is relatable and easy to remember. Increasingly the password requirement is become more complex and may include numbers, and unique characters and has uppercase and lowercase text.
Is this enough protection?
In most cases, it isn’t when you have such valuable data at risk! Kogo Ltd takes a very progressive view in regards to Cyber Security and as a starting point, we strongly recommend you set up Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA/2FA).
What is Multi-Factor Authentication?
Multi-Factor Authentication is a method requiring a user to verify identity in two or more ways.
The verifications are usually a combination of two of the below:
- Validation of your password
- Utilising your mobile phone via text or Authenticator App
- Biometrics such as fingerprint, iris or face recognition
The primary objective of implementing MFA is so to create an additional layer of protection. This minimises risk and makes it significantly more difficult to gain access to a user account.
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) enables and adds an additional security layer to your account.
