    Two factor authentication (2fa) sounds like a mouthful, but it is certainly one of the most important steps your business will ever take. Protecting your company information and that of your clients is pivotal to the success of any business. How prepared are you?

    Today’s era is synonymous with enhanced technological advancements and increased online activity. This results in information being shared rapidly. This also means our information becomes that more accessible. To ensure your business information stays secure, two-factor authentications are the next step.

    Double-up for security

    It might sound new, but it’s something you most likely already do. Two factor authentication is essentially a two-step process. What it does is get the user to prove they have  the rights to accessing a particular account. Two factor authentication requires something you know and something you have. Here’s an example. When making an online payment, what you know is your card number. The what you have is your phone to validate your one-time pin (OTP).

    The added blanket of security ensures your information is protected by your password. It also confirms you are the rightful person accessing an account. For more on two-step verification and how you can safeguard your business, contact TechBrain today.
