If a hacker manages to get into your email account, there’s endless scope for fraud and major business headaches:
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.
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.
Give us a call to discuss and we can deploy multi-factor authentication right away.
