“A massive portion of data breaches involve lost or stolen credentials,” said Alex Cagnoni, director of Authentication at WatchGuard. “With MFA, even if cyber criminals obtain login credentials, they still can’t use them to gain network or cloud access.
With an increasing number of people working from home, using MFA — from how they login to their local computer, to how they access your cloud apps — will protect your organisation far more than many other defence controls.”
Many small and medium-sized businesses have been put off MFA by the perceived cost, but WatchGuard’s AuthPoint solution overcomes this by eliminating the complex integration processes, significant up-front expenses and burdensome, on-premises management. The cloud-based service can be deployed and managed from any location without the need for expensive hardware components and uses the AuthPoint app to facilitate user authentication by sending one-time passcodes to a user’s mobile device.
