What is Two-factor Authentication?

Apr 12, 2018 From: SMS-marketing-tips



Nowadays, with the majority of people spending a significant portion of their lives on the Internet, it is very important to protect personal data from cyber-attacks and hackers. One of the commonest and simplest ways to do this is two-factor authentication. Let's figure out what it is.

Two-factor authentication (2FA), often referred to as two-step verification, is a security process in which the user provides two authentication factors to verify they are who they say they are.

Usually it boils down to the fact that in addition to the usual login and password, a randomly generated code is used, which is sent to the user via SMS. This means that you need to confirm twice that you are who you say you are.

So, for today, 2FA is one of the most reliable mechanisms of protection from unauthorized access.

Who can use it?

Banks & payment systems

Financial transactions require reliable protection. 2FA can ensure the safety of customer credit card data and, of course, their money.

Clinics & laboratories

The confidentiality and safety of patients' data is crucially important for all clinics. 2FA via SMS provides an excellent solution.

E-commerce

Using 2FA, you can strengthen the security of your e-commerce project. As your customers will feel more  secure, they will be much more likely to buy your products and services.

Law Firms

For lawyers, the  absolute security of entrusted secrets is a key issue. The  confidentiality of customer information is critical. By using 2FA, it isin your power to strengthen the protective mechanism.

What can be protected with 2FA?  

  • Personal Information
  • Intellectual Property
  • Financial information
  • Credit card details
  • Legal documentation
  • Results of clinical examinations, analyses, etc.
