Elevate trust with MFA and fraud detection

For decades, Gartner has recommended the use of multifactor authentication (MFA) to protect important information and user accounts. Organizations are now embracing MFA as a strategic enterprise initiative for two reasons:

The need for MFA has never been more acute, particularly as organizations migrate to hybrid/multicloud topologies for SaaS, IaaS and platform as a service — as well as collaboration tools like Exchange Online.

Today’s MFA technology delivers accelerated value due to SaaS-based MFA platforms — as well as mobile push and Fast IDentity Online (FIDO)-style USB hardware authenticators.

It is imperative that organizations take a holistic, strategic approach to their enterprisewide MFA initiatives. MFA still requires some forethought, but technological advances like mobile push authentication and a SaaS management model make it much easier to deploy at scale. 

Enhance Remote Access Security With Multifactor Authentication and Access Management

The COVID-19 pandemic has suddenly hastened the move toward remote work and thus the need to implement secure remote access for large workforce populations. Security and risk management leaders should invest in MFA and access management for all kinds of remote access, and they should plan for rapid scaling.

Key challenges

  • Secure remote access to on-premises and cloud applications requires identity and access management controls that a VPN, virtual desktop infrastructure/desktop as a service, zero trust network access or cloud access security broker alone cannot provide.
  • MFA is an essential control to establish trust in a remote user’s identity and reduce account takeover risks, but it is difficult to rapidly provision robust MFA options at scale.
  • Modern access management tools represent the future for remote worker access, but legacy applications represent a significant hurdle to the workforce of the future.

MFA, IAM and cybersecurity are covered in depth at this year’s conference.
