Multi Factor Authentication MFA
Updated: Nov 5, 2021
We all strive to keep our accounts safe and our details secure
. However, no matter how strong our passwords may be there is always a danger of compromise. This is a risk to your company as password reuse across multiple users can lead to several breaches throughout the company.
What can I do?
One of the best ways to protect your information and accounts is through the use of Multi Factor Authentication (MFA). What this does in the most basic sense is add a second (or more) step to the login process which undoubtedly provides an extra layer of security.
What are the benefits?
MFA has many benefits for your business. At its core, it helps to protect sensitive information from any kind of compromise. Users who would be most at risk would be safe using MFA as the second step to logging in as this would include something only the user themselves and no one else would have access to.
It also helps companies to meet regulatory requirements as MFA can be implemented to meet the compliance requirements. It not only saves the company from penalties regarding breach of rules, it also protects hardware and software from intrusion.

How can I set it up?
You need to contact email@example.com and request that the service is enabled on your Cloud Platform.
Begin by downloading the “Google Authenticator” app on your phone. This is what will be used as the second step of authentication.
