What is MFA?

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is an authentication method in which a computer user is granted access to a program only after successfully presenting identification to an authenticated person.

As organisations and workplaces evolve, less control is exercised over devices, services and networks leading to a gap in the traditional security tools.  Security must be increased, so authentication must be strenthened to protect against credential theft.

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) adds an extra layer of protection on top of your username and password.
