Using Multi-Factor Authentication to Prevent Takeovers of Cloud Accounts

Multi-Factor Authenticaton

You can never seem to have enough security these days, what with all the credential theft and data loss going on in an increasingly data-centric world.

That’s what makes features like multi-factor authentication (MFA) such a powerful weapon in thwarting the bad guys as they try to make off with your sensitive data stored in the cloud. Even more effective is risk-based MFA, which kicks in only if high-risk or anomalous activities are detected. In this way, you don’t ruin the user experience and IT gets the added security it needs.
