As seen with the latest Solarwinds breach and many others during this pandemic, cybercriminals are more active than ever these days. We must all take security extremely seriously. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is one of the most important tools in our arsenal to combat this cybercrime battle.
As a Microsoft Partner, Total Networks was required by Microsoft to enforce multifactor authentication on all of our accounts last year, although we had that in place well before the deadline. We expect that Microsoft will soon be making this very effective form of security mandatory for all user accounts in 2021. Total Networks is ensuring this is in place for all of our clients.
Arming your employees with multi-factor authentication for your e-mail means that criminals cannot access your accounts with a password alone. They must also have a second factor, such as a code you receive via text message or an application.
Cyber attacks are on the rise and every company is one easy-to-make mistake away from spiraling into financial ruin or forever tarnishing their reputation. Enforcing MFA is the single best way to manage that threat. Contact us today to learn more or to get a security risk assessment.
