What is Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)?
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is an additional layer of security added to a user’s account. The extra layer requires users to log into their account with not just a username and password, but also with an additional piece of information, such as a 6-digit code generated by an authenticator app .
Why do you need Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)?
To protect sensitive information: MFA can help to protect sensitive information, such as financial documents, intellectual property, and customer data from unauthorized access.
To comply with regulations: Some regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), require organizations to implement MFA for systems that contain sensitive data.
To reduce the risk of fraud: MFA can help to reduce the risk of fraud by making it more difficult for attackers to impersonate legitimate users.
