Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

« Back to Glossary

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a security mechanism that requires multiple forms of identification from a user in order to grant access to a system or application. It goes beyond the traditional username and password combination and adds an additional layer of security to protect against unauthorized access. Using only a password to log in is unsafe and a security risk. The idea of MFA is to have multiple layers of protection setup to make it difficult for unauthorized access but easy for your end users to manage. With our MFA, we allow you to secure not just the login to your local resources but also most external sources. (e.g., Microsoft 365)
