It is not uncommon to see ‘Brute Force’ login attempts where hackers have set up hacking servers to try and gain access to your online accounts.
What is MFA?
One of the most effective ways to prevent these ‘Brute Force’ logins and stay secure online is to use Multi-Factor Authentication or MFA which is easy to implement.
MFA works by adding an extra layer of protection to your sign-in process when you log into websites, web applications, webmail or other online services.
MFA adds another layer of security when you log into a service such as Microsoft Office 365 with your username and password.
The most common ways to confirm your identity with MFA are text, email or via an application on your smartphone.
MFA is an easy piece of security to enable on your end as a business and it provides you with a considerable increase in the level of security and control over your online services.
We recommend its adoption for your online apps and accounts where possible. These include Microsoft Office 365 , XERO or MYOB.
