Granting access to information is a necessity, as is security for both the user needing access and for the information for which access is being granted.
The best way to handle this is by establishing user accounts for users. This does several things at once:
The list continues, but these are the primary reasons user accounts help protect information and the access granted.
A more secure method on which more organizations are relying for user access is multi-factor authentication.
To be clear, single-factor authentication is where one factor is used to authenticate the user name: the password. In single-factor authentication, the device expects that only the user will know his/her password – but modern security isn’t that naïve!
Examples of multi-factor authentication include:
Usually only the most sensitive data requires three-factor authentication, but more and more processes – like banking or other highly-secure industries – will begin requiring additional security steps to maintain data security and prevent threats from unauthorized users.
New users and new devices that may otherwise cause vulnerabilities aren’t overlooked – Tier One Technology Partners reviews multi-factor authentication processes on a quarterly basis. Can you estimate how many new users and devices you can add each quarter? Protect weaknesses, maximize efficiency, and decrease downtime with Tier One Technology Partners and Multi-Factor Authentication.
