What Is Multi-Factor Authentication

You’ve probably heard of multi-factor authentication – or MFA. But what exactly is it? MFA is where you must use a second device to prove it’s really you logging in.

Perhaps it’s a code texted to your phone. Or a link emailed to you. Most often you generate a login code using a special app.

The idea is to protect all your accounts. Even if someone knows your email and password, this extra layer of security means they can’t log in unless they also have your second device.

As hackers get smarter and smarter, MFA is no longer nice to have. It’s becoming a basic and standard security step to protect your business’s data.

Yes, your staff may complain about it now and then. But you can tell them the minor disruption of generating a code a few times a day is nothing compared to the hell of being hacked – and potentially losing weeks of productive time.

MFA is really simple to set up for most applications. If you’re not already using it we recommend you get started immediately. Want us to do that for you? Just get in touch.

Our email wasn’t performing very well so we asked Hamilton Systems to take a look & Carl proposed to migrate us to MS Exchange.

Carl was very helpful throughout & the migration went very well.

He was on hand to sort out any teething issues, taking calls early morning & into the night, to ensure we were up & running smoothly.

Would recommend for knowledge, attention to detail & great customer service.”
