Security Tip

October 2, 2016

The most beneficial cloud security tip is to utilize multi-factor authentication (MFA). MFA adds a crucial layer of security to a user’s sign-ins and transactions, making it significantly difficult for cyber attackers to access information. It works by requiring multiple verification methods; typically a password, trusted device (phone or text message), and/or biometrics. Breaches, identity theft, spear phishing, etc., can cost a company millions, not to mention a loss of reputation, if critical information is stolen (or changed/destroyed). Being proactive with a layered security approach is the best practice for securing user data in the cloud, especially with the increase cyber-crime and hacking.
