Single Sign-On (SSO) and Multifactor Authentication (MFA)
Implementing Alternative Login Methods to Protect Company Systems
What security measures are you taking to protect your logins? In a world full of numerous external threats, it is crucial to use other secure login methods to keep your company data safe from hackers. This can be done with secure methods such as Single Sign-On (SSO) and Multifactor Authentication (MFA).
Say Goodbye to Passwords with Single Sign-On (SSO)
Passwords are a pain to both the employers, who have to provide credentials for every system, and for the employees, who need to keep track of all these credentials each time they need to log-in. There is very little time and so much to do, and there has to be an easier way to access all these systems while eliminating the need for endless credentials. Luckily, companies can take advantage of Single Sign On (SSO), where you need only one global password to be able to access all the company’s systems.
Although SSO authentication works more in favor of user ease, there are security benefits as well. With having to log-in only once, users reduce opportunities for hackers as there are less sites where you need to type in your credentials, which hackers are always ready to prey on. On top of that, users will be less likely inclined to write down their password as they may remember it. However, it is vital to keep in mind that if the global password still gets in the hands of the wrong people somehow, it would allow them to access all systems as well, so businesses should assess these factors before coming to a conclusion.
Add Additional Security With Multi Factor Authentication (MFA)
Almost every reputable site requires an additional layer of security through the use of Multifactor Authentication. Many of these sites will send you a text message with a code to be able to fully log-in. So the good news is that if hackers get a hold of your credentials, they will most likely not be able to get past the second step. This method is also termed Two Factor Authentication (2FA) or Two Step Verification. With MFA security, there is no limit as to how many layers of security you can add.
On the downside, the more layers of security you add, the more you are sacrificing ease of logging in quickly and getting to the information you need. So if you want to secure your business while making life easy for your employees, keep on reading.
Can You Combine Both SSO and MFA?
Yes! It is recommended that you implement both to get the most benefits. Single Sign On has ease of use benefits but less security benefits and Multifactor Authentication has more security benefits but less ease of use benefits. Both SSO and MFA have its pros and cons, but luckily, you can eliminate the cons by combining both methods. There are several ways to do this, but it all comes down to how your business is structured and what your requirements are.
