MFA effectively secures access to the corporate network, systems, and applications by requesting another identity factor. Authorized individuals must confirm their identity through multiple security factors:
Something you know – usually the password.
Something you have: For example, a smartphone or a hardware token.
Something that you are: Biometric factors such as fingerprints or FaceID
Only the authorized person with access has all the factors at his disposal. This ensures that only this person can log in.
Therefore, even with a stolen password, a hacker cannot access your data and systems.
