Why Multi Factor authentication is Important for You

Jan 4th 2017 at 1:14 AM

Cyber attacks are on peak nowadays. Even “Yahoo”, one of the greatest search engine suffered from cyber breach a few days back where over one billion accounts were infected. Yahoo is not alone, many big names like LinkedIn, Dropbox etc. are in the list. The incident shocked the world and raised a very big question, “ how secure we are, I mean how secure is our digital identities?” Well, the example mentioned here has clearly defined the answer.

So, what are you doing to protect your customers’ data- their  digital identities? Do you have any idea in your mind? If not then don’t worry, I will help you out.

Have you ever heard about multifactor authentication? As the name suggests, it is a method of authentication in which a user is allowed to access web services only after successfully presenting several pieces of their evidences. The method simply adds an extra layer of security to your username and password.

In this method, after entering username and password, a unique code is sent to user’s phone that he/she needs to enter for further process . The widely used mode of code is one-time password(OTP). So, the code that is sent to mobile phone acts as an additional layer of security.

How multi-factor authentication adds security?

Well, generally users have to enter just a combination of username and password to access any web service. If anyone is able to get your credentials, he/she can access your services but this is not in the case with multi factor authentication. Let’s suppose one of your friend knows your password and he can access your services. But when you have secured your account with multi-factor authentication, he has to enter the secret code that is sent to your either mobile phone or email id in order to access your account. Even the hackers can manage to hack your credentials but access to your mobile phone is not in their hand, so it is impossible for them to have that unique code. According to a report, 38 percent companies that are dealing online, have implemented multi factor web authentication.


The method is safe and secure. So, if you are planning to provide secure web authentication and keep your customers digital identities safe then it is one of the best options for you.

Thanks for sharpening of life, it has given us many, many, have become more rational, become more understanding, we have become indifferent and calm. Know, the simple life, to enjoy the quiet beauty of the original life with color! So I walked on, will be out in the desolate landscape of downtown, every day must be a better future!The road of life, there is rugged with a flat, there are so many needs across Goukan; taste of life, there are ups and there are sweet, there are so many needs salty taste. Through the years, there is a warm haze, dark songs are bright; through their own, have lost harvest, do not regret not proud. I came all the way life experience, life is a precious asset, to make themselves more calm, calm. Do yourself, make a strong man, your heart empty bright.Life is a walk through, came destined to miss a lot of people miss a lot of things, no matter what, still the front line, we can do is try and effort, no matter what position, do not blame yourself, who then happy , there will be worries. Although we do not change a lot of things, but they can have a rather pale, Tian Yi mentality, everything comes naturally, to see some open, some bearish, indifferent when frustrated, proud when calm, everything would be much simpler.Landed on the mountain, before we know high to low; did do that I know there are numerous simple; wading through the river, and they knew a shallow depth. Life as a stream, creek Shu Yi, there are rivers of agitation; Dankan life, as there are clouds floating in the sky, there are dark clouds, scene changes, so will have colorful. More of a take it lightly, do not bear too much unnecessary burden, simple life, with a good and optimistic attitude to face, nothing exciting is true.We feel, there is joy, there is depression; the road of life, there is sweet, but also sweat; you give life, there are wonderful, more bland. No one is perfect, not perfect accepting themselves; the impermanence of life, do not complain of heart pain. Not because there is no moon at night, but during the day will not come; not because of his grief, loss, that it is God's people get. Learn to comfort themselves, life is tough training, we will also see the rainbow after the storm.We are just ordinary mortal man, every day, even then confused, and let yourself smile, some things bearish, cherish their own, do not destruction, life goes on. Journey in advance when there is always turning, facing a painful, no escape; not avoid life attitudes, frankly face. Do a portrait of blooming flowers bloom without wanton cover when, frankly face the bleak when dying, with the simple pleasure of the heart, Xiaoying life.When tired, take a break, comfort themselves, through the darkness, can feel the temperature of the sun; clockwise, have fun, enjoy the joy of giving thanks for life, with the sun on my heart. Life, rise and fall, do not fall every time once again negative, adversity, relieved, to the benefit of the doubt, lingering in the doldrums, in time, the quietly become separated.
