One of the ways to achieve this is to add extra factors of authentication to obtain what we call multi-factor authentication
, which will be discussed in the next section.
Whenever mainstream companies like Google strive to make multi-factor authentication
less of a burden, it becomes easier to persuade average internet users to apply an extra layer of protection to their accounts.
is a security system that requires more than one type of authentication to verify the identity of a user for the purpose of login or transaction:
CensorNet said it will integrate SMS Passcode's adaptive multi-factor authentication
technology into its cloud-based Unified Security Solution, which brings together email and web security with Cloud Application Control.
New native multi-factor authentication
capabilities improve security without requiring external integrations or additional costs for expensive token-based authentication systems.
Zurawski added, "[LastPass] offers their end-users more than half a dozen forms of multi-factor authentication
options, but they are just that -- options.
Commenting on the new research finding Khan said: "Use of multi-factor authentication
techniques based on something you know (user ID and passwords), something you have (smartphone or smart card) and something you are (bio-metrics like fingerprint, voice and face) are secure ways of authenticating subjects and our invention uses these three factors for securing the information systems."
This enables enterprises and other organizations to quickly deploy and manage multi-factor authentication
into Office 365 applications and other web-based services for more secure access control.
: One of the most foundational security principles is multi-factor authentication
The bank said 'dynamic multi-factor authentication
' on online and mobile banking platforms comes in the form of one-time pins (OTP).
In most electronic payments, RBI has asked banks to put in place multi-factor authentication
. For instance, in cards, an individual has to provide the physical card, a signature and - very soon - a pin number to authenticate transactions.
As a proven, truly scalable, multi-factor authentication
technology, PINsafe represents a major growth opportunity for system integrators and VARs to rapidly exploit the complianceled demand for strong authentication solutions.
