Multi-factor authentication

Relying solely on passwords is precarious, as research indicates that individuals often share passwords and choose weak ones. The prevalence of credential breaches has led companies to bolster authentication methods by incorporating multi-factor options, such as combining ID/password with a one-time passcode.

The implementation of multi-factor authentication (MFA) necessitates careful planning. We chose a versatile strategy, utilizing both ID/password and a one-time passcode delivered through various means.

Challenges in this process encompass enabling MFA by default, safeguarding delivery methods, and ensuring comprehensive logging. Additionally, having alternative vetting options and backup MFA controls is imperative.

In summary, the era of relying on single-factor protection is obsolete. Despite the challenges, investing in the right MFA solution proves beneficial, affirming the principle that "Two is better than one!"
