Over the last few years, there has been a significant rise in cybercrime. As each cyber-attack becomes more advanced, we’re finding that legacy security systems aren’t cutting it anymore.

Businesses of all sizes can be affected by cybercrime. According to recent reports, weak, stolen and reused passwords are one of the leading causes of security breaches. Taking the preventative steps to ensure your organization is secure is ideal. This is where two-factor authentication can come into play.

What Is Two-Factor Authentication?

Two-factor authentication is an electronic authentication method in which a computer system or account user is granted access to a website or application only after successfully presenting two pieces of evidence (or factors) to an authentication mechanism. Typically, when using two factor authentication you’ll need to provide a password as well as a second “factor” to gain access. This second factor could be a PIN number, an answer to a question, or even a fingerprint or voice scan. This addition of the second factor is what will make your accounts more secure and harder for cybercriminals to hack.

Implementing Two-Factor Authentication for Your Business

It’s important when choosing to implement two-factor authentication that you work with a team that can create a solution for your unique company needs. There are a few different types of two-factor solutions including, one-time passwords, software-based authentication, backup codes, and more. You’ll want the solution that is right for your systems and your teams so that business can continue seamlessly.
