Multi Factor Authentication
Multi Factor Authentication
It’s a concerning fact that the traditional password is now considered inherently insecure. Users struggle to remember them, consequently they choose easy to remember passwords, use the same password for different sites and systems, write them down in the back of notebooks and on post-it notes and only make slight incremental changes when they are periodically forced to change them.
Most worryingly is the rise in sophistication of “phishing” attacks. The use of very genuine looking emails, usually with an element or urgency in the subject, that trick users into clicking on a link to either a website that downloads some kind of malware, or a spoof website that looks so convincing that the user enters their real username and password into it. Handing the keys to the attacker so to speak.
81% of data breaches involved weak, default, or stolen passwords*
How can two factor authentication for Hosted Desktops help?
Two factor authentication brings an additional layer of security as it uses a combination of something you know (your username and password) and also something you have, such as your smartphone.
A hacker would need both your password, and have physical access to your mobile, in order to gain access to your systems.
An additional benefit is that if a hacker attempted to access your system but you still had your mobile with you, then you would immediately get notified that someone was trying to gain access to your system – and had your password – giving you opportunity to report the attempt and also change your password.
