Multi-Factor Authentication with a twist
Keeping up with change and new technological developments is one of the basic challenges of cyber-security. A stronger Authentication/Identification mechanism is among the most preferred methods of increasing the security of new technologies. When it comes to adopting data security technologies, about half of security professionals support technologies such as Encryption, Multi-Factor Authentication and Hardware Security Modules.
Using more than one factor in the authentication process has made it possible for companies to secure critical information and increase their chances of meeting security goals. It uses a combination of independent credentials that increase its effectiveness.
The 3 main factors used in Multi-Factor Authentication are:
- Something the user knows;
- Something the user has;
- Something the user is.
These three factors work together for creating the perfect mix for optimum security against cyber-attacks, and they shouldn't be ignored.
Multi-Factor Authentication is one of the data security developments that have been quietly waiting for their turn in the spotlight but is now becoming the new norm for companies that want to protect their digital assets. The MFA market is increasing, and is expected to spread across all industries, due to security concerns as well as its role in legislation compliance needs.
Passwordless authentication takes Multi-Factor Authentication one step further, by eliminating the risk posed by weak or reused passwords, while increasing user convenience. As the value of data is increasing, it is essential that companies which process sensitive data implement more sophisticated authentication methods.
iWelcome provides Multi-Factor Authentication through mobile authentication, using a distributed authentication and authorisation system that increases the security of your digital properties without requiring users to remember any passwords, allowing you to stay protected from threats such as password theft, brute force, man-in-the-middle and server breach.
1. Higher security
The distributed authentication system that iWelcome provides increases the security of digital properties and is a radical increase in security and ease of use compared to the classic “username & password” system.
2. User convenience
Authentication is performed at the touch of a button, without requiring users to remember any passwords, hence eliminating the risk of lost or stolen credentials.
3 . Cutting-edge technology
We use best in class security protocols to ensure complete user privacy, and bring compliance to personal data security regulations closer.
