What is Multi Factor Authentication?
Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) is a security layer that requires multiple authentication methods in order to better secure access to websites, applications, and user data.
MFA is often applied to accounts that store sensitive user data such as personally identification, financial, or other private data requiring additional layers of security.
Typically, MFA requires the user to present two forms of authentication such as a username, time passwords, thumbprint, push notifications or SMS code sent to another device, OATH hardware tokens, or email confirmation in order to be able to access the account.
How to Implement Multi Factor Authentication
On the surface, MFA services seem simple to implement. However, there are common pitfalls that companies run into when rolling out without a proven strategy.
To start, decide which platforms your company wants to protect with MFA and which form of authentication your team will leverage. A mobile app, such as Microsoft Authenticator or Duo Security, is a proven way for companies to generate security keys and act as a trusted form of authentication.
Build documentation to guide users on how to implement MFA on their devices. Consider the impact for new hires and adjust onboarding processes to include setting up an authentication method if needed.
