Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
Why Passwords Are Simply Not Enough
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is an authentication method that requires the user to provide two or more verification factors to gain access to a resource such as an application, online account, or a VPN. MFA is a core component of a strong identity and access management (IAM) policy. Rather than just asking for a username and password, MFA requires one or more additional verification factors, which decreases the likelihood of a successful cyber attack. MFA is based on three elements:
- Things you know (password / PIN);
- Things you have (smartphone / badge);
- Things you are (fingerprints, retina).
