7 Things to Consider Before Making the Switch to MFA
Passwords are hard. The (what feels like constantly) growing list of security requirements are intended to make passwords secure, but in many cases they’ve had the opposite effect. Complex passwords that meet all the requirements are often difficult to remember, so they’re reused across many sites. Users scribble them on sticky notes. They weave in easily discoverable pet’s names, birthdays, and phone numbers. It’s no way to keep data secure.
Thankfully, organizations are starting to not just understand, but also support the concept that while access should be hard for hackers, it needs to be easy for legitimate users. And the best way to make that happen is with multi-factor authentication, or MFA.
