The need for MFA in today’s world is only becoming more and more apparent. According to The Password Expose from LastPass, the average employee is managing 191 passwords. Even a genius would sweat at the thought of remembering 191 unique, strong passwords from memory. This promotes the re-use of basic passwords and is a looming threat to every company. Not to mention between brute force attacks, social engineering, and phishing attacks, a simple 8 character alphanumeric password can be cracked in a matter of minutes.
As the internet and cloud solutions become an even larger part of everyday life, especially in the workplace, ensuring identities can be properly authenticated and access is securely granted to only the right people, passwords alone simply are an outdated security measure. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) states that “MFA should be used wherever possible for any type of external access like VPN, Outlook Web Access or Citrix” and advised that many of the security issues they see today stem from passwords. Also, NIST advised that businesses should incorporate Multi-Factor Authentication in their login policies, and that password management and policies are not a one-size-fits-all.
