Secure Your Email With Multi-Factor Authentication

Passwords get compromised, but changing them regularly is hard work.

Instead, try multi-factor authentication in your business to prevent email and data breaches.

If a hacker manages to get into your email account, there’s endless scope for fraud and major business headaches:

  • Personal data breaches
  • Fake invoices being sent out
  • Identity theft
  • CEO payment fraud
  • False payment detail updates
  • Password harvesting

Your reputation and bank balance is at risk if your email accounts are not secure.

The reality is that many people re-use simple passwords, and nobody wants to change them regularly. So, consider multi-factor authentication to improve the overall security of your email accounts and allow simpler and easy-to-remember passwords to be used safely.

Benefits Of Multi-Factor Authentication

Makes it almost impossible for hackers to compromise your email accounts
Complies with current best-practice in cyber security
Allows users to use simpler passwords more safely
Makes regular password changes mostly irrelevant and unnecessary
Vastly reduces the risk of financial fraud and identity theft

How Multi-Factor Authentication Works

When accessing email from a new device or location, users will be asked for both a password AND a one-time passcode which is only valid for around 30 seconds.

The passcode is generated using an app on that person’s smartphone, or can be sent via text message (SMS) to a mobile phone.

This approach has one big advantage: if an email account password becomes known to a hacker, they remain UNABLE to access the account. Why? Because they do not have the mobile phone, which is the only means of generating a valid login code.

We call this muti-factor authentication because there is a password (the first factor) plus the one-time passcode (the second factor). It would be possible to find other means of verifying your identity even further still, but 2-factor authentication as in this scenario is a relatively simple and highly effective approach.
