Prevent unauthorized access. Get multi-factor authentication to mitigate theft.

Have you ever stopped to ask yourself: do my employees reuse their passwords for business and personal use? Have these passwords been changed recently? Are they compromised?

With the rise in digital security breach hitting the news media on a daily basis, it’s never been more important to consider what steps you have in place to keep your data safe. Whether small business or large, multi-factor authentication is one key way to add a layer of security to thwart an attack. Why might your business need it?

  • Identity theft is skyrocketing because it’s easy. Because identity theft is easy – too easy – and a growing threat to businesses of every size. MFA makes identity theft much harder. Protect your organization against stolen passwords.
  • Password123.” Your passwords aren’t strong enough. When was the last time you changed them? Does your staff use the same passwords for personal and professional use? MFA greatly increases the protection against weak passwords by verifying each user accessing your network.
  • Small business attacks are increasing. MFA is a quick and effective implementation to mitigate security risks. Small businesses are are being targeted at an increasing rate by attackers. Be proactive before you have to be reactive.
