Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) helps safeguard access to data and applications while maintaining simplicity for users. MFA reduces the risk of brute force attacks, an attack whereby attackers attempt to guess passwords, and dictionary attacks. This is an attack whereby attackers attempt many passwords stored in a dictionary.

Key features

  • Provides additional security by requiring a second form of authentication.
  • Delivers strong authentication via a range of easy to use authentication methods.

The deployment of the second factor authentication will reduce the risk of cyber-criminals accessing company IT resources like emails or virtual desktops. And protects from accounts being compromised should a user inadvertently fall victim to a phishing email and provide their network credentials to a criminal.

The security of two-step verification lies in its layered approach. Compromising multiple authentication factors presents a significant challenge for attackers. Even if an attacker manages to learn the user's password, it is useless without also having possession of the additional authentication method (often a mobile phone). It works by requiring two or more of the following authentication methods:

  • Something you know (typically a password)
  • Something you have (a trusted device that is not easily duplicated, like a phone)
  • Something you are (biometrics)

Wavex offers a range of user-friendly MFA solutions to secure Office 365, Azure, Citrix and RDS solutions.

Due to the rapid rise of cyber-crime, cyber security is of paramount importance to every business in order to minimize the risks of extortion or unplanned downtime. With staff struggling to change their complex passwords regularly or falling victor to phishing attacks where they disclose their passwords to realistic looking spoof sites, it is vital to implement an additional layer of security to compliment passwords.
