Credential theft is at an all-time high. It’s responsible for more data breaches than any other type of attack.
Business data is now largely stored on cloud-based systems.
This means that an employee’s password is the quickest and easiest way for a hacker to access a wide variety of confidential business data.
However, there are many valuable tools you can use to fend off bad actors. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is the best method there is to protect cloud accounts.
According to a study cited by Microsoft, it is proven to prevent approximately 99.9% of fraudulent sign-in attempts.
MFA adds a layer of cybersecurity protection by confirming the authenticity of users who are logging in to various platforms. This is completed by entering a code from your mobile device into the application you are trying to log into, or by approving a prompt that is sent to your mobile device.
Databranch has helped many Western NY businesses implement MFA and highly recommends adding it to all your organization’s devices to provide a significant barrier against cybercriminals, even if they have a legitimate user credential to log in.
