This electronic authentication method allows a user access to their desktop/laptop, relevant website or application, after an additional security measure has successfully been approved, following the standard username and password methodology. Not only do we deploy this as a standard within our cloud environment, we also implement this for firms with traditional onsite server models. 2 Factor Authentication have proven to protect against multiple standard cyber attacks we find these days:

  • Phishing 
  • Social Engineering 
  • Password Brute Force
