Multi-Factor Authentication

Basic passwords that are rarely changed are easy to remember but are also easy to compromise. Companies are increasingly being targeted and infiltrated with critical data being held to ransom by hackers. 
The Australian Government has introduced new amendments to the Privacy Act requiring mandatory notifications of data breaches in addition to the existing strict privacy laws already in place. 
Multi-factor authentication adds a second layer of security to your online accounts by verifying your identity using your phone or other mobile device to prevent anyone but you from logging in.
Why does your company need Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)?
Multi-Factor Authentication keeps your account secure even if your password is compromised and will alert you instantly if someone is trying to log in as you. 
This comprehensive security solution confirms the identity of users as well as the health of their mobile devices before they connect to a network, using Trusted Users. In order to verify trusted user’s identities, MFA requires two methods of identification. 

Additionally, Trusted Devices give administrators complete control over who and what is accessing the organisation’s data and checks the security settings of devices before they access applications and data. 

Multi-factor Authentication also collects detailed data on every authentication request so that informed security policy decisions can be made within the organisation, in addition to reporting on whether mobile devices are up-to-date.
