Multi-Factor Authentication: How can it Benefit Your Business?

RTS IT tip series

In this video, we’ll discuss why Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is important for any business.

What is a MFA solution? It’s a secondary way of protecting your password, ensuring your safety while you’re traveling out on the road, or even at your favorite Starbucks.

There are several ways to provide MFA. When you sit at your computer in the morning, after you enter your password, you may need to enter a secondary code, which may be around eight digits. That code can come from a text message, an app on your phone, or a key fob that generates a code every 60 seconds. It’s a unique way to make sure that you are you, and you are the only person that can log into your device.

How can Multi-Factor Authentication benefit your business? Well, if you have road warriors traveling with their Microsoft Surfaces or their laptops, you want to make sure that in the event their device is lost, no one is able to pick that machine up and begin to access information that is just for your company.
