The number of data breaches is increasing even though some companies are spending billions of dollars on security products and services. It seems easier than ever before for hackers to breach cybersecurity defenses. IT administrators are dealing with pressures and demands of the critical need for top-notch security. Admins have installed antivirus software, raised the firewall, deployed encryption technology, and periodically run vulnerability tests. Those protective controls are nullified if an attacker can obtain a valid set of user credentials to the environment. Without user authentication, though, the front door is wide open to intruders. Multi-factor authentication enables IT admins to rest a little easier, knowing that they have deployed a security strategy that protects the company's platforms and users alike, thus reducing complexity while ensuring access and boosting the flexibility of remote workers.
The correct implementation of Multi-factor authentication will ensure to safeguard often overlooked points of authentication, such as email and business applications. Without this extra layer of protection, an attacker can exploit an exposed email account or compromise a poorly-protected application to gain access to additional user information—or even worse, use the compromise as a “foothold” to escalate privileges and gain superuser access to the entire environment. Companies recognise that it is an area worthy of commitment and are allocating funds accordingly. To help organisations select the best vendors, a distinguished panel comprising of prominent CEOs, CIOs, VCs, and analysts, along with Enterprise Security Magazine’s editorial board has assessed and shortlisted Multi-factor authentication solution providers that are at the forefront of providing cutting-edge technology solutions.
