A way of securely authenticating a user, 2 Factor Authentication is now common practice for most companies and large organisations. Two factor authentication, which is also known as 2FA or TFA involves using two of three forms of identification that only the correct user could have access to.
These can be either ‘something you know’, e.g. a password or pin; ‘something you have’, e.g. an algorithmic key fob, USB or mobile app/SMS message containing a unique code; or ‘something you are’, e.g. biometric data such as a finger print, retinal scan or vein scan. Requiring more than one of these immediately takes your security protocols to the next level. You can find out more about our 2 Factor Authentication by contacting us today here at AVR.
