Multi Factor Authentication assures your data and accounts are protected and significantly reduce the chance of being hacked.It is also knows as 2FA Authentication. It is an additional security feature for your Windows Machines that is designed to prevent anyone from accessing or using your computer, even if they know your username and password as it requires both "something you know" (like a password) and "something you have" (like your phone to receive otp or something you have like USB disk).
Though global enterprise security spending is now in excess of $100B/year, the number of breaches continues climbing - not decreasing.
Less than 10% is spent on eliminating compromised credentials - where greater than 80% of all breaches originate.
Authentication software or security codes downloaded on a computer or phone are vulnerable to modern phishing and Man-in-the-Middle (MITM) attacks. And re-typing a code from one device to another wastes time and is prone to error.
Decrease time to authenticate by greater than 4 times
Reduce support desk costs by greater than 90% significantly cheaper than our competitors
No account takeovers when Multi factor authentication is deployed fully
Options to deploy on prem and as a cloud solution
One key to access multiple Systems with no shared secrets
Text, challenge question, & traditional MFA options available
Imagine unauthorized access to your computer that has everything in it locally or remotely. If the password is compromised then the following may happen:
One of the most significant security weaknesses in any information system is the password-based single factor credential that is commonly used to authenticate a user to a system. Security experts widely advocate for replacing single factor credentials with multi factor authentication (MFA) or two factor authentication methods. Since MFA solutions are dramatically more secure due to their ability to withstand brute force, keylogger, man-in-the-middle, and other common attacks.
Multi factor authentication is an extra layer of security that requires not only a password and username but also something that only, user has, something only they should know or have immediately on hand, such as a physical USB disk or a mobile phone to receive OTP (One time Password), Quiz questions or an OTP to external email address. Multi factor authentication assures your data and accounts are protected and significantly reduce the chance of being hacked from all intruders.
Cionsystems multi factor authentication is an extra layer of security that requires not only a password and username but also something that only you know and have access to, such as a physical USB disk with the token or a mobile phone to receive the OTP (One time password)
Whenever you log in/unlock your system/server/ virtual system locally or remotely, you'll enter your password as usual.
Get access to your machines (Laptop/ Desktop/ Servers)
Then, a screen appears asking you something that only you know or have immediately on hand, such as a physical USB disk that is a key to your system or a mobile phone to receive OTP (One time Password), Quiz questions or an OTP to external email address
