As cyber criminals continue to evolve their tactics in an effort to steal personal information, a password alone is no longer enough to protect your data. One of the simplest and most effective ways to secure your data is by using multi-factor identity authentication.

Multi-factor authentication is a security system that requires more than one method of authentication and ensures that a user is who they claim to be. By combining something you know with something you have or with something you are, multi-factor authentication uses at least two factors of identity authentication to let the RIGHT people IN and keep the WRONG people OUT.

Multi-factor authentication security requires multiple levels of identification at login. Because of this, it is considered to be the most secure method for authenticating access to data. We like to refer to it as our, “Digital Gatekeeper.”

We created an infographic below to show why one form of identity authentication is just not enough protection in today’s evolving digital world. Like gatekeepers, the more levels of authentication you have, the more secure your documents are.
