Multi-Factor Authentication For Los Angeles Businesses
Passwords are the bare minimum when it comes to cybersecurity. Do you need a second layer of security to protect your data?
Are you letting passwords give you a false sense of security?
If they’re the only measure of defense you have protecting the data stored and accessed through your business’ IT environment, then you’re at risk.
Case in point – at the latest RSA security conference, Microsoft engineers told attendees that 99.9% of the accounts that are compromised each month don’t have additional security measures enabled. In January 2020, this resulted in 1.2 million breached accounts.
That’s why you need an extra layer of security in place…
Do You Have Multi-Factor Authentication?
Multi-factor authentication is a great way to add an extra layer of protection to the existing system and account logins.
By requiring a second piece of information like a randomly-generated numerical code sent by text message, you’re able to make sure that the person using the login credentials is actually who they say they are. Biometrics like fingerprints, voice, or even iris scans are also options, as are physical objects like keycards.
If you’re unsure about how to implement a multi-factor authentication solution, don’t try to handle it all on your own. The Generation IX team will help you evaluate your password practices and security measures as a whole to make sure you’re not taking on any unnecessary risks.
