Welcome to another shasaf blog!
In this blog we wanted to talk to you about online security and why this subject gets more attention these days.
Let us begin by looking at what Two-Factor-Authentication is.
Two-factor authentication (2FA), which can sometimes be referred to as two-step verification or dual-factor authentication, is a security process in which users provide two different authentication factors to verify themselves.
In other words, 2FA is implemented to better protect your credentials and the resources you can access. This type of authentication provides a higher level of security than your usual single-factor authentication – typically a password (that you probably use in most of your accounts) or a passcode.
There are different ways one can set up a 2FA, depending on your preferences, but also on the preferences of the app or IT solution you are using. The two-factor authentication methods rely on the user providing a password as the first authenticator and a second, different factor – usually either a security token or a biometric factor (face scan or fingerprint)
You are probably thinking: “That is all good! But I am doing fine with my strong password – it has upper- and lower cases, symbols, and numbers. I am all set!”
Over the last decade, we’ve seen a rise in hacking, data breaches, and other cybercrimes. As a result, corporations (big and small) start to look towards a better understanding of security and the extra steps they need to take to avoid future threats.
Simply put – usernames and passwords alone are no longer enough.
2FA is a great tool for companies to protect themselves and their customers. The added layer of security goes a long way to help, in fact, recent studies show that as much as 80% of security breaches are preventable with a Two-Factor Authentication.
What’s more? Security plays a vital part in customer’s decision-making nowadays, and more people say that they will definitely leave a company after a data breach.
