3 Reasons Why You Should Enable Multi-Factor Authentication

When it comes to IT support, one of the most common concerns we see businesses have regardless of their size is what security measures can be put in place in order to ensure that sensitive information is protected at all times. One strategy we can’t recommend enough that is quick to set up, but makes a world of difference is multi-factor authentication (MFA). In this blog, we’ll be covering three of the top reasons why you should enable MFA in your business and personal life. 

  1. Effortless Implementation

An easy, cheap, and simple solution to a complex problem- need we say more? Multi-factor authentication is already built into many programs used today making it not only an obvious choice that won’t break the bank, but also a familiar one. Because of the mainstream rise in popularity, your employees will most likely already have experience in their personal lives with multi-factor authentication due to the services they use such as online banking, social media, and email.

  1. Essential Layer of Protection from Cyber Threats

Even with the best security systems in place, you are still vulnerable to password hacking, identity theft, and other cyber crimes without user authentication. The reason being is that antivirus software, firewalls, encryption technology, and security tests can all be bypassed if multi-factor authentication is not implemented. As technology continues to advance, so do the potential cyber threats which means that it’s more important now than ever to ensure that your systems are running exactly as they are supposed to and only authorized personnel can access your data. 

  1. Boost Flexibility for Work From Home Employees

With the work from home structure being adapted by more and more companies, multi-factor authentication allows end users the needed security with greater ease of use while working outside of the office. Implementing multi-factor authentication can help bring you peace of mind and allow you to focus on growing your business instead of constantly worrying about a potential cyber attack. This increase in security will not only help you and your employees feel safe, it will also help current as well as prospective clients feel that they can trust that you will keep their information protected.
