Given that it takes just one stolen password to compromise your network, how likely is it that one or more of your employees are mishandling their passwords?
About 1 in 5 people consistently use weak or shared password...
Even more alarming, the costs associated with a breach can reach millions of dollars with direct fines, investigation and remediation expenses as well as indirect expenses from lost customers and low employee productivity. The following statistics can help to quantify the risks and compare that to the anticipated cost of an MFA solution.
The solution is Multi-Factor Authentication
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a method of logon verification that adds a layer of security beyond just a simple username and password. It prevents unauthorized access that can result from lost or stolen passwords, while enabling verified users to easily access their accounts and information.
The WatchGuard AuthPoint solution addresses a common security gap with multi-factor authentication (MFA) on an easy-to-use Cloud platform. With a simple push notification, the AuthPoint mobile app makes each login attempt visible, allowing the user to accept or block access right from their smartphone. Furthermore, AuthPoint is a Cloud service, so there’s no expensive hardware to deploy, and it can be managed from anywhere using WatchGuard Cloud’s intuitive interface. Our ecosystem offers dozens of integrations with 3rd party applications – ensuring that MFA protection is broadly applied for access to sensitive Cloud applications, web services, VPNs and networks.
Quality Plus Consulting can help you implement MFA in a sensible, affordable way.
