Every single day, an employee will certainly authenticate to several of those services. First, to their computer. Then, to an email server, and maybe a Cloud application. If they are not physically in the office, they are probably connecting to the network through a VPN. And where are the user credentials? The data traffic carries user credentials through Wi-Fi connections and public network.
Password they can be shared. Written down. Captured. Guessed. Cracked. Stolen
The term “two-factor authentication” or “strong authentication” is not new. It started being used in the 90s, usually designating a hardware token generating one-time passwords (OTPs) associated with a fixed password.
When there are more than two factor it is called MFA
These are standard authentication factors that MFA solutions could use:
1. Something you know (your password)
2. Something you have(a token on your phone)
3. Something you have(a phone DNA)
4. Something you are(a fingerprint to access)
