Multi-factor authentication

Forms of remote access such as virtual private networks (VPNs), emails, servers and administrator consoles require more than just the use of complex passwords.

This access must be protected through multi-factor authentication.

Multi-factor authentication is an authentication method where at least two separate forms of identity are required to gain access to an IT resource.

One example of this process is accessing an email account for which a one-time code must be provided as well as the user’s password, using applications such as Google Authenticator, Apple two-factor authentication, 2FA Authenticator and Microsoft Authenticator.
