MFA (Multi-Factor Authentication) is the next step to tighten one of the most common security breaches of a network: Compromised passwords. 80% of security breaches involve compromised passwords. What is MFA? After entering your password at your workstation to log in, you get a notification on your phone with a request to acknowledge the sign-in attempt before allowing you or the user to log in to their computer. MFA prevents breached passwords from being used by verifying through a 2nd method that you are the person login into the corporate network.
