Multi-factor authentication should be a core component of IT security for businesses of all sizes. Deploy it in minutes to every user in your network with Calligo.
What is multi-factor authentication?
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a network security process that requires users to input more than one method of authentication.
These are typically a combination of:
- What the user knows e.g. passwords
- What the user has e.g. a second device
- What the user is e.g. biometrics
Most multi-factor authentication strategies start with a password, and then have additional measures on top, usually a one-time code from a second device, a push request through a second application, a fingerprint ID, or a geo-location verification.
Why deploy multi-factor authentication?
Calligo believes that multi-factor authentication should be the default position for every company. Reliance on passwords alone is almost certain to be compromised at some point through phishing, keylogging or pharming, making relying on password-based “single factor” authentication unwise.
By adding additional layers, or factors, to the network defence, it becomes far harder for unauthorized individuals to access your data.
