Findings show 74 percent of respondents who use two-factor authentication admit that they receive complaints
IRVINE, Calif. – Jan. 11, 2017 – SecureAuth® Corporation, the leader in adaptive access control, today announced the results of a survey that reveals challenges associated with two-factor authentication (2FA). Commissioned in conjunction with Amplitude Research, the responses surveyed 300 IT decision makers and cybersecurity professionals on industry perspectives and concerns with 2FA.
While many of today’s organizations have made the shift to cloud-native infrastructures, for others doing so can still be challenging. In particular, older companies may find themselves dealing with legacy software and on-premise systems with security standards that may not be able to translate seamlessly to the cloud without first taking a hybrid approach.
Listen in as James Romer, Chief Security Architect - Europe, is interviewed by IP EXPO Live about SecureAuth. Romer quickly sums up our access control with adaptive authentication solution, "We make sure you are who you say you are - from wherever you are!"
There were over 3,141 confirmed data breaches in 2015 and that doesn't include the ones that were never reported or detected. Yahoo's recent attack involved at least 500 million user accounts. Clearly the security problem is getting worse, not better.
In 2015 alone, over 750 cyber attacks were reported globally – with many more never reported or even detected. Enterprises deploy security point solutions in the hopes of stopping a data breach, while savvy attackers work to exploit the whitespace between them.
On the heels of recent mega breaches in which usernames, passwords and security responses were compromised, there’s a growing movement from individuals and businesses for an authentication overhaul. Clearly single-sign on, password-based authentication – and even more traditional two-factor approaches are no longer enough in today’s digital world.
