Something you have.  Something you know. – WST

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is simple, easy to use, generally straight forward to implement, and can save your organization and customers from data loss.  The token (something you have) is inexpensive or free, and usernames and passwords (something you know) is something your organization’s employees or customers use on a regular basis.

Some obvious and typical uses for MFA are VPN access, administrator sessions to sensitive systems, or secure web-portals like web-based email access, secure file shares, customer portals, and so on.

See our blog post for more information on the different types of MFA.  https://10dsecurity.com/the-low-down-on-multi-factor-authentication/
