The Enemy Without… (How Multi-Factor Authentication Increases Security)

Posted on

In the last episode, we saw how simplifying access to your applications can save time and headache through single-sign on. In this episode, we are going to tackle multi-factor authentication. This time, Andy is calling Marlon because he has been locked out of his admin account. Marlon sees that there has been a login attempt from someone overseas. Andy then explains that he’s concerned, given the access level he has and asks if security for his account can be increased. Marlon begins to set up multi-factor authentication on his account. This will add an extra layer of security to prevent any unauthorized logins by sending an SMS or phone call to him each time a login is attempted. Yet again, Marlon saves the day! ReadyNetworks can also save you major security concerns by helping to implement multi-factor authentication throughout your company computers!
