Berkeley Multi-Factor Authentication
Traditional login methods are easy; they’re also unsafe. Protect your network with multi-factor authentication.
In the modern technological landscape, having a solid, reliable backup plan is everything. From data backup to disaster recovery, you can never overdo it when it comes to securing your information. That’s why multi-factor authentication from 42, Inc. is a natural progression for companies that value their network’s safety. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) combines two or more independent credentials, typically involving multiple levels of user knowledge and security. But what does that mean, and what goes into further protecting your already password protected information?
What you know (your password), what you have (your security token), and who you are (biometric identification) are all useful ways to add layers of security to your login process. For example, some companies use a system where after you log in with your password, users are sent an additional single-use password to their phone number or email address. MFA doesn’t mean you have to maintain and remember countless passwords for every account—it just means that if that single password is compromised, measures are still in place to prevent a security breach. Password banks might not be encrypted and MFA is a useful tool for keeping that information out of the wrong hands.
When’s the last time you suffered a data breach? It’s easy to feel comfortable if you’ve been fortunate up to this point, but there’s always a chance that things could go south at a moment’s notice. Multi-factor authentication takes the guesswork out of your security. It’s one thing having an airtight security system around your network, but employee error can lead to unforeseen disasters. That’s why MFA is such a valuable tool—your team will be able to operate more safely than ever. Benefits of MFA include:
