Featured Solution: Two-Factor Authentication

February 1, 2018 The TNS Group

Why do you need 2FA – Two Factor Authentication?

  • Global ransomware damage costs exceeded $5 billion in 2017!
  • Over 90% of breaches today involve compromised usernames and passwords. Once an intruder steals login credentials they have the ability to freely move around your network undetected.
  • Hackers can create a computer bot that will try every combination until they guess your password. When using a two-factor solution you prevent hackers from guessing your password and gaining immediate access.

What is Two-Factor Authentication?

Two-Factor Authentication provides an extra layer of protection by requiring two methods to verify your identity. These factors can include something that you know (username and password) plus something you have (smartphone to approve authentication requests). Our comprehensive security solution confirms the identity of users before accessing the network, monitors the health of devices and isolates devices with risky applications or outdated firmware.

Passwords are everywhere and they are becoming more and more complex. Even with the use of password management systems, your data could be compromised if your password is open to the public through a phishing scheme or database exploitation, to name a few. With advancements in technology such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), productivity has grown but businesses are exposed to countless threats both internally and externally. This change in landscape furthers the need for businesses to consider incorporating Two-Factor Authentication into their environment.

Our team can effectively implement and manage a solution that will secure your organization from both internal, external and cloud-based malicious login attempts. In addition, we manage and develop granular policies that are tailored specifically to your business and security needs. 

We pride ourselves on creating a solution that integrates into all entry points of your network, including SSL VPN logins, Citrix, Office 365, Web-Based Applications, and Windows Desktops.
