Have your employees start using F2-Factor or Multi-Factor Authentication for additional peace of mind. It can become instrumental in helping to strengthen the human firewall. It gives your employees an extra security layer when they fall for an attack.
Multi-Factor Authentication requires two things to gain access to the employees’ accounts: Something they know and something they have. Something they know is generally their password. Something they have is typically their phone or a one-time passcode device.
When accessing their account, they need to enter their password and enter the one-time code displayed on their phone or device or texted to them. While having this in place will prevent most malicious attempts to log in to the employee’s account, it is not foolproof.
As MFA rises in popularity, be aware that attackers are now smart enough to ask for the code as soon as the employee is handing them their credentials to use the code sent right away to gain access.
our employees might insist on using their own devices for comfort and ease while working remotely. But, unfortunately, their devices may already be compromised with malware or might not have the proper security to access sensitive company data.
We recommend issuing devices to remote employees to improve your company’s security. We can walk you through installing all the necessary security tools to protect your company information on each device. Alpha IT’s tools let you keep up-to-date management and maintenance for every device so your team is protected and doesn’t miss a beat.
