Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) Across Your Enterprise
Passwords are the weakest link in your security. They offer inadequate protection against cyber attacks, data breaches and fraud. Centrify strengthens security with adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA) across enterprise identities and resources — without frustrating users.
What is Multi-factor Authentication?
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) adds a layer of security that allows companies to protect against the leading cause of data breach — compromised credentials. Users provide extra information or factors when they access corporate applications, networks and servers. Multi-factor authentication uses a combination of the following factors:
Username, password, PIN or security questions
Smartphone, one-time passcode or Smart Card
Biometrics, like your fingerprint, retina scans or voice recognition
Why MFA Everywhere?
With so many credentials having been compromised and made available to attackers, password-based security is no longer effective. Because multi-factor authentication (MFA) requires multiple methods for identification, it’s one of the best ways to prevent unauthorized users from accessing corporate data.
But applying MFA for only certain apps, users, or resources, still leaves your organization exposed. Implementing MFA across every user (end-users and privileged users), and every IT resource (cloud and on-premises apps, VPN, endpoints, servers and privilege elevation) blocks cyberattacks at multiple points in the attack chain — and protects against compromised credentials.

The Top 5 Application Security Risks
Applications — and the sensitive data within them — are everywhere and so are the users that need to access them. But making cloud and on-premises apps available to onsite, remote, and mobile employees can introduce security risks. Make sure you’ve got these top five covered.
