Robust security is key when it comes to storing data.
Cyber-criminals are targeting all businesses, all the time, using clever automated tools to sniff out weaknesses they can exploit.
Don’t make it easy for them.
Multi-factor authentication gives you another level of security when logging into apps.
What is it? You’ve probably used it when you log into your bank account. You enter your password, then on the next screen you click to have a code texted to your phone which you enter as a second, single-use password.
Thing is, it’s not just for your bank. You can use it to access many applications. It’s simple to set up and you can use it for any account that holds data you’d rather not fall into the wrong hands.
There are lots of different ways to do multi-factor authentication to protect your business’s data:
- The text message approach: That’s lots better than nothing, but is the least secure
- Generate a code on your mobile: This is better
- Have a special small USB device that must be plugged into your laptop
