In this blog piece, I’ll discuss how to add extra security to your systems with two-factor authentication (TFA). It’s actually very straightforward and provides a step-change improvement to your security.

What is Two-factor Authentication?

Two-factor authentication protects your applications by using a second source of validation, like a phone or token, to verify user identity before granting access. It is engineered to provide a simple, streamlined login experience for every user and application, and as a cloud-based solution, it integrates easily with your existing technology.

Add extra security to your systems – Our recommended TFA solution

We have tested several solutions for TFA/MFA and have chosen ‘Duo’ as our preferred offering. Duo is fast and easy for users to set up, and with several available authentication methods, they can choose the one that best fits their workflow. No headaches, no interruptions — it just works.
Because Duo functions like a gateway for your existing and future IT infrastructure, it’s the perfect solution for growing businesses of any size. Set up new users and support new devices at any time, and protect new applications almost instantly — without impacting legacy technology.
Duo natively integrates to secure any application or platform, so whether you’re adding 2FA to meet compliance goals or building a full zero trust framework, Duo is the perfect addition to your security portfolio.

  • Multi-cloud, hybrid, or on-premises environments
  • SAAS tools, critical infrastructure, custom applications, and even SSH
  • Secure remote access

Add extra security to your systems – An example deployment

We use a bespoke management system called JIM. We continuously maintain and improve the security of the system. We implemented Duo so that, even in the unlikely event that a hacker cracks one of our encrypted passwords, they would still not gain access. The account owner would receive a TFA push request on their smartphone, and be immediately alerted to the attempted unauthorised access. So a double-win! Hacker prevented from access, user alerted to attempted hack.

Get Started with TFA!

So why not get started and add extra security to your systems with TFA? It’s straightforward to set up and for your team to use. What’s more, you’ll sleep that little bit easier knowing you have significantly improved your online security.
