MFA - Multi-Factor Authentication

What is Multi-Factor Authentication?

Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) is a type of authentication that requires a user to provide two or more verification factors in order to gain access to a resource like an application, an online account, or a VPN. A robust Identity and Access Management (IAM) policy should include multi-factor authentication (MFA). MFA needs one or more extra verification criteria in addition to the login and password, which reduces the chances of a successful cyber attack.

Security ahead of single password

Security breaches are decreased and data is kept more secure when Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) is used. Weak or stolen credentials can be used to perpetrate fraud or violate privacy when usernames and passwords are the sole means of authentication. Using Multi-factor Authentication as an additional way of password protection can help keep hackers out of your system. You can avoid 99.9% of account assaults by using MFA!

Ease of Use

2FA and you're good to go. It also lets users log in even if they don't have access to the internet by employing offline 2FA techniques like a soft token.

How does MFA works?

When a user seeks to access a resource, they are presented with numerous authentication factors rather than just one. A core identity provider (IdP) or directory services platform subsequently verifies the user credentials. The user receives access to the requested resource after being authenticated.

With each login attempt, the most popular MFA systems generate a unique one-time passcode, also known as an OTP. miniOrange additionally offers a more current and secure kind of MFA in the form of a smartphone "Push notification." A push notification is delivered to your registered smartphone, and you must approve it in order to have access to your account. You may also utilise a hardware token, such as a Yubikey, or a soft token to obtain access to critical services.

MFA factors to ensure strong authentication

Knowledge Factor (something you know)

Knowledge factors include multiple passwords, PIN codes, and answers to security questions. Anything you can remember, type, say, do, execute, or otherwise recall when needed is considered a knowledge element.

Possession Factor (something you have)

This element suggests that you possess a certain object since it is improbable that a hacker would acquire your password and take anything physical. This category includes smartcards, mobile phones, physical tokens, key fobs, and keychains.

Inherence Factor (something you are)

This feature is often verified by a fingerprint test on a phone, but it also includes anything that may be a wholly unique identification of your physical person, such as a retinal test, voice or facial recognition, or any other sort of biometrics.

Benefits of Multi-Factor Authentication

Enhanced security

The implementation of Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), which adds an extra layer of security, reduces the chances of an attacker impersonating a user and getting access to the system.

Increased productivity and flexibility

Employees may securely access business apps and resources from practically any device and location, without jeopardising the company's network.

Fraud Prevention

MFA adds an additional degree of protection by ensuring that everyone is who they say they are, preventing unwanted access.

Improved user trust

When employing MFA, users may secure the protection of their personal information without exerting additional effort.

Reduced management cost

You'll observe less suspicious behaviour on client accounts if you use MFA, and you'll spend less money on security management as a result.

Adaptability for different use cases

Extra protection is required while dealing with sensitive data. The adaptive MFA assesses risk based on contextual variables such as geolocation, IP address, and time since the last login.

The Future of Workplace Security - Risk-based Authentication

Adaptive Authentication (also known as Risk-based Authentication) detects fraudulent attempts based on predetermined risk criteria and prompts customers to complete an additional step to confirm their identities.
