Why is Multi-Factor Authentication Important?

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) provides a high level of security for logging in online - ensuring only verified users are granted access. Implementing MFA protects accounts from hackers and account takeover.

MFA can be customized based on your internal policies using knowledge, possession, and/or biometric authentication methods. Two or more of these methods will achieve MFA. When implemented, MFA mitigates hacking vulnerabilities associated with each method.

Passwords

More than two in three people reuse passwords for their online accounts. Once a password is compromised, accounts using that password are at risk*.

Devices

Smartphones and other devices can be stolen, compromised with malware, or bypassed through SS7 vulnerability exploits.

Icon success
Biometrics

Biometric authenticators are vulnerable to replay attacks (e.g. masks, fake videos) as faces and voices are inherently public traits.
