Passwords aren’t enough

For years, computer users have been told they should have complicated passwords, including numbers, punctuation marks and other symbols, and upper- and lowercase letters. Despite those being hard to remember, people were told not to write their passwords down and were forced to make up new ones quite frequently.┬áMost people couldn’t actually remember lots of passwords, so instead they reused a small number of passwords over and over again. These bad habits leave you one click away from a data breach.

Multi-factor Authentication is trending

To temper the risks user name and password present in today’s environment, companies are increasingly adopting additional verification factors as a check on cyber-crime. Whether it’s tokens, texts, bio-markers, or other means, users are having to increasingly prove they are who they say they are in more than one way.

But multi-factor authentication (MFA) is not a panacea. Implementing it the wrong way can cause friction in transaction processing and user frustration.
