Passwords get stolen all the time, using Cycrest’s MFA/2 Factor Service greatly reduces the chance of someone using your passwords when stolen.
Developing a strong network security plan is a fundamental necessity for every IT organization that prides itself on protecting its customers, as well as itself. The balance between digital security and a satisfying user experience is a hard balance, but can be achieved. A unique approach to this complex issue utilizes what is commonly referred to as "multi-factor authentication" (MFA), also known as "2 Factor Authentication".
How Does the Cycrest MFA Service Work?
Having a complex and unique password for each account is always the first step.
Cycrest MFA service is a tool that helps you to reduce this frustration and prevent your organization from identity theft. It is a simple, yet essential service that adds to the traditional username and password login the so-called TOTP (time-based one-time password), a unique token that is generated by a smartphone or other device. Thanks to this feature, your protection procedure will have an additional level of security.
By using both pieces of information (username-password and TOTP token), you will dramatically reduce the risk of losing your identity. This zero trust security might add an extra step but, since it's quite simple, it will not greatly impact your login process while simultaneously helping to keep your accounts safe and secure. This is of special significance for those who keep sensitive data, whether of a business or personal nature; Having an extra layer of security is never a waste of time.
The Benefits of Using Cycrest MFA Service
The greatest benefit of this security strategy is the personal, time-sensitive factor added to the authentication process that helps keep your accounts safe and your information protected. Thanks to this, knowing the password alone is not going to be enough for hackers anymore. Additionally, it adds a sense of mindfulness to the login procedure and acts as a consistent reminder to users of the importance of identity security.
Whether you are an individual or an enterprise trying to ensure sensitive data, the Cycrest MFA Service will help you to raise awareness about this important issue and achieve regulatory compliance with various statutes and acts, such as PCI or some other standardized regulation. If your organization is using applications such as G Suite and Office 365, or even macOS and Linux systems, Cycrest MFA Service can be of special help. With Cycrest MFA Service, administrators on the network can set up multi-factor authentication across the entire organization, thereby providing their end users with more secure gateways to all available resources. Using LDAP, RADISU, and SAML protocols, Cycrest MFA Service connects users through the centralized set of credentials. Additionally, as aforementioned, Cycrest MFA Service integrates directly with G Suite, Office 365, macOS, and Linux, so that any accounts under these larger programs are protected directly.
