Multi-Factor Authentication

Turn to the solution that can effectively block all automated attacks! 

Don’t believe us? Google and Microsoft agree.

Both tech giants have separately gone on the record to talk about the benefits of Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), stating that their research demonstrated that MFA can block over 99 percent of many attacks. Taking this into consideration, implementing MFA into your own access control features is a no-brainer… especially nowadays.

Understanding MFA

Multi-factor authentication (also known as two-factor authentication or 2FA) is an improvement upon the security of the traditional username-password combination.

Under the traditional requirements, a user only needed one thing to access an account: the account’s password. The problem with that was that passwords aren’t necessarily the best way to add security, especially when paired with the bad habits of most users. Length and complexity requirements meant that the password was more likely to be forgotten, so people would write it down as a reminder or come up with something that they (and anyone else) could guess easily. Worse, these passwords would then be reused for different accounts, exacerbating the security issue.

Multi-factor authentication helps fix that.

By supplementing the username-password combination with an additional requirement (one that the user would have a difficult time sharing) any account protected by MFA becomes substantially more secure.

What Is Managed IT?

For businesses, having a managed IT service provider means that your technology will be monitored and maintained by a team of IT experts who are essentially your very own IT department. By truly understanding your business’ IT needs, Dresner Group makes sure that you are free to focus on running your business and not your technology.

How Multi-Factor Authentication Works

Let’s say that Mary Q. User is looking to access her company’s online storage solution. Her login process begins as it always has: she enters in her username and her password.

Mary is then prompted to provide a brief access code that is only delivered to her mobile device via a preselected application. Opening the app, Mary enters the code and is permitted access. Only by using this code can she get into the company’s solutions.

MFA cuts down on the chance of unwanted access to your business’ solutions.
