- Multi Factor Authentication (MFA)
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a simple best practice that adds an extra layer of protection on top of your user name and password. MFA strengthens access security by requiring two methods to verify your identity — something you know, plus something you have. Single-factor authentication isn’t enough to secure sensitive communications, high-dollar transactions or privileged user access. ACE IT Solutions MFA solutions provide the security needed to comply with FFIEC standards and protect applications and accounts that contain sensitive data. ACE IT Solutions’ MFA solution verifies the identity of your users and the health of their devices before they connect to the applications you want them to access.
