Adaptive Multifactor Dynamic Authentication an essential for teleworking
Adaptive Multifactor Dynamic Authentication is the current trend to genuinely identify authorized users through the active authentication process using passwords, biometrics, behavior, etc.
Ultimately, Adaptive Multifactor Dynamic Authentication adds a layer of protection to the login process. When accessing an account or application, users must go through additional identity verification; for example, they have to scan their fingerprint or specify a code that they receive on their phone.
Adaptive Multifactor Dynamic Authentication makes it exponentially harder for bad actors to gain access to your account, even if they have in their possession a password that was leaked as part of a breach. A layered defense and making it more difficult for an unauthorized person to access a target, such as a physical location, a computing device, a network, or a database. If one of the factors is compromised or broken, the attacker still has at least one more barrier to break through before successfully entering the target. This is a significant security improvement for access to any platform on which sensitive or strategic data is accessed. And in a scenario like the current one where teleworking is combined with face-to-face work, it gains particular importance.
Working from home has become the norm in many organizations in recent times. However, when working, we must be sure to access our organization’s resources safely and whenever we need them. For this reason, the rise of technologies such as VPN and the cloud has caused millions of accesses to platforms to be produced daily with the risk that it entails.
For the Teleworking modality to be effective and not compromise or interrupt business continuity, it is crucial to adequately implement security measures and protect equipment. But not all solutions are the same…
There are several types, Single Factor Authentication, Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) and Adaptive Multifactor Dynamic Authentication (MFA).
The one-factor authentication options whose effectiveness has already been more than questioned; the difference between MFA and 2FA is simple. Two-factor authentication always uses two of these factors to verify the user’s identity, while Adaptive Multifactor Dynamic Authentication can involve two or three of these factors. Adaptive Multifactor Dynamic Authentication implies that several factors more significant than one, will be used and consequently.
