Multi-Factor Authentication

Multi-factor authentication is a fundamental best practice of cybersecurity and great first step for an organization to implement.

What is Multi-factor authentication (MFA)? – It is an authentication method in which a computer user is granted access only after successfully presenting two or more pieces of evidence (or factors) to an authentication mechanism that involve: knowledge (something the user and only the user knows) and possession (something the user and only the user has). A good example of multi-factor authentication is the withdrawing of money from an ATM; only the correct combination of a bank card (something the user possesses) and a PIN (something the user knows) allows the transaction to be carried out.
