Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

What is Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)?

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is an authentication method that requires the user to provide two or more verification factors to gain access to an online cloud account, applications, network, or VPN. MFA is a core component of a strong Identity and Access Management (IAM) policy which helps in decreasing the likelihood of a successful cyber attack. Rather than just prompting for a username and password, MFA requires one or more additional verification factors. Additional verification factors can be OTP over SMS/Email, Token based authentication, or any of your preferable MFA methods from a plethora of MFA login methods provided by miniOrange.

Why is Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) important?

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a critical security measure that requires users to provide multiple forms of verification before gaining access to a system or account. By combining factors such as something they know (like a password) with something they have (like a smartphone), MFA significantly enhances security, reducing the risk of unauthorized access, password-related breaches, and identity theft. It is essential for safeguarding digital assets, complying with regulations, and adapting to evolving cybersecurity threats.

MFA Security

Multi-Factor Authentication Workflow

How does MFA works?

When a user seeks access to a resource, they encounter a multi-factor authentication (MFA) process that supplements the traditional username and password. A central Identity Provider (IdP) or directory services platform rigorously verifies the user's login credentials. To gain access, the user must successfully authenticate using both their initial login details and a second authentication method.
MFA systems employ various methods, including the generation of unique one-time passcodes (OTPs) for each login attempt. For enhanced security, miniOrange provides an advanced MFA option known as "push notification." This method sends a prompt to your registered smartphone, requiring your approval to access your account. Additionally, users have the flexibility to utilize hardware tokens like YubiKey or soft tokens to access critical services, ensuring a robust and adaptable security framework.

MFA Authentication Factors

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 factor suggests that you possess a particular object since it is improbable that a hacker would acquire your password and take anything physical. This category includes smart cards, 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 body, such as a retinal test, voice or facial recognition, or any other sort of biometrics.

Benefits of Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Enhanced security

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) adds an extra layer of security, reducing the chances of an attacker gaining 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

Multi-Factor Authentication (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 Multi Factor Authentication (MFA), users may secure the protection of their personal information without exerting additional effort.

Reduced management cost

You'll observe less suspicious behavior on client accounts if you use Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), and you'll spend less money on security management as a result.

Adaptability for different use cases

Additional security is required when processing high-value transactions or accessing sensitive information from unknown networks and devices, such as geolocation, IP address, and time since the last login.

Adaptive Authentication or Risk-based Authentication

Adaptive Authentication provides an extra edge to MFA security based on risk and access provided by the security admin to control user access.
Adaptive Authentication (also known as Risk-based Authentication) detects fraudulent attempts based on predetermined risk criteria and prompts customers to complete an additional authentication step to confirm their identities.

Frequently Asked Questions.

What is the difference between MFA and Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)?

MFA and 2FA are almost similar and often used interchangeably. 2FA is basically a subset of MFA since as the name suggests 2FA restricts the number of authentication factors to two, while MFA can be two or more.

Can I enable MFA for Office 365?

Yes with miniOrange you can easily integrate MFA authentication on Office 365 and other apps with 15+ MFA methods options at competitive pricing. Office 365 by default uses Azure AD as its authentication system but with certain limitations. Azure MFA methods are limited to the basic 4 methods: Microsoft Authenticator, SMS, Voice, and Oauth Token. Licensing policy is also complex which leads you to spend more.

What is MFA in Cloud Computing?

With the rapid growth in Cloud Computing MFA has become a mandate. As companies move their systems to the cloud they can’t rely on a user being on the same network considering security. Additional MFA security needs to be put into place to ensure that those accessing the systems are valid users. MFA ensure that they are who they say they are by prompting additional authentication factors that are more difficult for hackers to imitate or use brute force methods to crack.
