Multi-factor authentication provides a constructive element of layered security by requiring users to prove their identities using two or more verification methods before they can be authenticated. In this way, if one factor is compromised or broken, the attacker still has at least one more barrier to breach before breaking into the target.
Authentication methods that depend on more than one factor are more difficult to compromise than single-factor methods. Accordingly, properly designed and implemented multifactor authentication methods are more reliable and a stronger deterrent than outdated single-factor username/password authentication.
Multi-factor authentication requires users to prove their identities using two or more verification methods before they can be authenticated. In this way, if one factor is compromised, the attacker still has at least one more barrier to breach before breaking into the target.
Multi-Factor Authentication is the process whereby multiple technologies are used to prove the user's authenticity. In contrast, single factor authentication (or simply "authentication") uses a single technology to prove the user's authenticity. With Multi-factor authentication, users must combine verification technologies from at least three different groups. These groups include something you know, something you have, something you are etc.
Our multi-factor authentication solutions have been designed from the ground up to safeguard accounts and transactions by offering two or three factors of security, while meeting user demand for a simple sign-in process. We have invested considerable time and resources to create easy-to-use, scalable, and reliable solutions that deliver strong authentication using a range of easy verification options - such as color QR codes and Bluetooth.
