Business Driver: Thales-SafeNet Authentication Product
The sad, irrefutable fact is that identity theft is still a major vector for attacking organisations. Any method applied to improve the security of user credentials – particularly users with elevated credentials – provides organisations with a heightened level of security. The most effective Cybersecurity strategy deployed is “layered” – if one layer is breached another set of choke points or controls is in place to thwart attackers. Without doubt the most effective security safeguard available is Multifactor Authentication (MFA). Also known as Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), multifactor authentication combines something you know – Password, with something you have, say a Security Token or Mobile Phone to improve identity-based access.
