Authentication using static passwords remains as vulnerable as ever. It is prone to dictionary attacks, brute force attacks, key loggers, phishing attacks, and much more. Add to it the fact that end-users tend to choose weak passwords for easy recall, even when the stakes are high and the situation is an appetizing target for security attacks.
What is Two Factor Authentication ?
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a solid defensive strategy that addresses problems like identity theft associated with traditional password-based systems. Generally, it is understood to be an authentication mechanism where “something you have” and “something you know” are both provided as evidences of identity to enter a system.
Choose from multiple factors of authentication:
Digital Certificates One Time Passwords (OTP) using Tokens/ Software/ Mobile/ SMS
Enabling an application with a second-factor of authentication involves tedious integration of the solution with the existing application, which means expenses at both the application and user ends, to modify as well as integrate the solution. This makes the application dependent on the new solution thereby stunting its growth, not to mention the recurring cost.
