Estimates show that a cyberattack happens every 44 seconds throughout the day. That is a scary figure, and of course, the impact of an attack can be massive for companies, regardless of their size. The cost of a cyberattack on your company/organization will be extremely high, not to mention the time and effort it takes to recover from an attack. It may also lead to a loss of the trust your customers have in you. In the end, it's not worth it.
Most businesses have online systems that allow users to log on to do their shopping and banking, get the status of their building electricity use, etc. Usernames and passwords are essential, but on their own, they can be vulnerable and stolen by third parties or used in cyberattacks.
You might not even know that your data has been compromised as it is stored in a third-party solution that just got hacked.
How does Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) work?
MFA asks the user to identify themselves by more than a username and password when logging on to a new smartphone, online account, or VPN. The most common way is with one-time passwords. These are 4–8-digit codes that you receive via e-mail, SMS, or a mobile app.
MFA reduces the risk of a successful cyberattack and helps companies and individuals to protect their information.
Consider MFA like a thumbprint or physical hardware key that can give you confidence that your organization will stay safe from cybercriminals.
By introducing MFA – Multi-Factor Authentication, you add an additional layer of security to protect your company.
