Attaining Agility While Also Maintaining Security

Top 10 Multi Factor Authentication Companies in Europe - 2020

In light of the recent high profile online attacks that have taken place in different global regions, it can be said that cybersecurity has become a moving target for organizations of all sizes. Increasing social engineering and other new forms of threats are making the existing password-based authentication systems vulnerable to breaches. Bad actors are identifying and implementing ways to breach security software, firewall, and encryption to steal authentic user credentials and exploit sensitive systems and data. In such a scenario, multi-factor authentication has emerged as a boon for organizations to move away from the traditional password-based authentication systems and implement next-gen solutions for secure authentication and user validation.

Being at the forefront of cybersecurity, multi-factor authentication adds an extra layer of protection to the overall network and systems security. This additional security layer proves crucial in barring an attacker from exploiting emails, manipulating privileges of the users, or extracting sensitive information from business applications and data. Multi-factor authentication has seen several innovations in the recent past, the most prominent being related to biometrics. Enabled with facial recognition and fingerprint scanner, mobile devices have made biometric technology affordable for the masses. Besides mobile devices, businesses are keen to move away from pins and password-based security, and implement physical security with multi-factor authentication to ensure higher safety across their job sites. Furthermore, apps are being enabled with a multifactor-authentication system embedded into the code. So the software built is secure from the ground up.

There is a bevy of multi-factor authentication solution providers offering new-age multi-factor authentication solutions to overcome the security threats and help teams of an organization collaborate seamlessly in the online space. Many providers are developing unique frameworks to secure data storage and sharing. Cutting edge technologies such as artificial intelligence is being merged with human intelligence to tackle the widening threat spectrum.
