What Is Multifactor Authentication
MFA is a user identification protocol that requires multiple credentials. Without MFA, if Virtual Private Network (See “What Is a VPN”) credentials are stolen, your organization risks data breaches. VPNs can act as a handy access point to the corporate network, where a hacker can gain higher privileges and access other systems. Layering an MFA on top of a VPN solution can provide distinct benefits, but it can also result in a cumbersome user experience.
For mobile data security that is stronger than a VPN, see MobiKEY, which has multifactor authentication built in.
