Often referred to as two-factor authentication (or 2FA), cloud multi-factor authentication is a critical and vital tool that fights against identity theft and unauthorized access to company resources. Multi-factor authentication adds a second or third factor to the login process on all your company resources including apps, services, servers, etc.

Any two factors can work together, enabling an extra layer of security to verify the user’s identity and complete the sign-in process.
MFA protect your user accounts and company data with a wide-array of MFA verification methods such as push notifications, Google Authenticator, phishing-resistant, and so on. Other benefits of MFA include:
When implemented correctly, under the supervision of expert professional, multi-factor authentication can significantly benefit IT security without causing much challenges to the end-user.
