It's easier than you think for someone to snip your password.
Two Factor Authentication products add an additional layer of security. 

US Federal regulators recognize the following authentication factor options:

  • Something you know – a password or PIN code
  • Something you have – a smart card, USB key, PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) certificate or mobile phone
  • Something you are – a bio metric characteristic, e.g. fingerprint or voice pattern.

These communal actions could put you at risk of having your password stolen:
  • Using the same password on more than one site
  • Downloading software from the Internet
  • Clicking on links in email messages
  • Clicking on fake antivirus pop-ups 

With TechNEXA, you can turn this security feature on in your account settings.

Imagine dropping access to your account and the whole things are in it.

When an attacker steals your password, he could lock you out of your account, and then do some of the following:

  • Go through or delete all of your emails, contacts, photos.
  • Make-believe 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).
Two Factor Authentication : An extra layer of security

This 2 factor could come from one of the following categories:

  • Something you know: This could be a personal identification number (PIN), a password, answers to “secret questions” or a specific keystroke pattern
  • Something you have: Typically, a user would have something in their possession, like a credit card, a smartphone, or a small hardware token
  • Something you are: This category is a little more advanced, and might include biometric pattern of a fingerprint, an iris scan, or a voice print

Benefits of Two-Factor Authentication

By requiring a second form of identification, SMS- Two Factor Authentication decreases the probability that an attacker can impersonate a user and gain access to computers, accounts or other sensitive resources. Even if a fraudster gains access to a password, he won’t have the second element required to authenticate.

Enterprises are embracing mobility as it contributes to higher productivity. With mobile two factor authentication, employees can securely access corporate applications, data, documents, and back-office systems from virtually any device or location-without putting the corporate network and sensitive information at risk.

You would think that having multiple authentication factors would make logging into accounts more complicated. But the added security given by MFA actually allows companies to use more advanced login options like single sign-on.

Aside from encryption of data, a lot of compliance standards – federal, state or otherwise – usually specify that organizations need to implement MFA for certain situations. This is especially true when it comes to protecting sensitive data like personally identifiable information (PII) or financial details. This means that implementing MFA is actually a step to take towards compliance.

As discussed above, the principle of MFA is that each factor compensates for the weakness of the other factors. For example, authentication factors about “something the user knows”, like passwords and pins, can be susceptible to brute-force (hackers forcing logins) or social engineering attacks.
