Multi factor authentication - 2FA authentication

Protect your Windows servers, desktops, laptops, tablets, virtual systems in enterprise and cloud

Multi Factor Authentication assures your data and accounts are protected and significantly reduce the chance of being hacked. It is also known as 2FA Authentication. It is an additional security layer 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).

Enterprise security budgets are increasing - but so are breaches

Though global enterprise security spending is now in excess of $100B/year, the number of breaches continues climbing - not decreasing.

Underspending on what matters most

Less than 10% is spent on eliminating compromised credentials - where greater than 80% of all breaches originate.

Basic 2FA Authentication is susceptible and cumbersome

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.

Multi factor authentication verification reinforces privacy, security and data protection even when password is compromised

Imagine unauthorized access to your computer that has everything in it locally or remotely. If the password is compromised then the following may happen:

  • The hacker will have access to all your data, critical files, email, contacts, photos etc.
  • Login to all of your internet accounts
  • Pretend to be you and send unwanted or harmful emails to your contacts
  • Use your account to reset the passwords for your other accounts (banking, shopping, etc.)

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.

  • Token based - Generic USB key
  • Challenge-Response questions
  • Out-of-band OTP sent as SMS on phone
  • Out-of-band OTP sent to registered email

It's easier than you think for someone to steal your computer password and gain access Any of these common actions could put you at risk of having your password stolen:

  • Using the same password & not changing it
  • Downloading software from the Internet
  • Clicking on links in email messages
  • Sharing passwords
  • A new account is created in your computer without your knowledge
  • If the computer is lost or stolen

How does Multifactor Authentication work

multi factor authentication

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)

1- You'll enter your password

Whenever you log in/unlock your system/server/ virtual system locally or remotely, you'll enter your password as usual.

3- Get Access

Get access to your machines (Laptop/ Desktop/ Servers)

2- You'll be asked for something else

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
