What is multi-factor authentication (MFA)?

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is an additional layer of security added to a userโ€™s account. This extra layer requires users to log into their account using not only a username and password but also an additional piece of information, like a 6-digit code generated by an authenticator app or sent via SMS.

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.
