Being secure online is of greater and greater importance. As businesses operate almost entirely online and sensitive information finds itself living full time in the cloud, we have to make sure we have appropriate measures in place to keep information safe.
One tried and tested way of promoting security is the use of failsafes in login systems. This is what’s referred to as Two Factor Authentication (2FA) or Multi Factor Authentication (MFA).
This means that someone could get hold of your email and password, yet your data is still kept safe.
Whether you’re already familiar with the terminology or not, you’re certainly familiar with the concept.
