In today’s world of increasing digital crime and internet fraud, security of online systems and their access is critically important, however, traditional modes like passwords and captchas are not enough. Hackers are using an alarming variety of attacks like phishing, brute force, web app attacks, the point of sale intrusions etc., to steal passwords and wreak serious havoc. According to reports, around 75% of breaches leverage stolen or weak passwords – this is not surprising since standard security procedures usually require a simple username and password making it increasingly easy for criminals to breach systems and gain unauthorized access to data and critical systems. Users tend to make it easy for criminal hackers, by indulging in practices like weak passwords, using the same password across multiple applications or keeping the same password for long periods. These practices may help them remember their logins, but they invite hackers in through the front door.
Valid8Pro multi-factor authentication system provides the required additional layer of protection to address such weaknesses. Valid8Pro helps mitigate the ripple effect of compromised credentials, by requiring additional evidence that you are who you say you are.
User credentials must come from at least two or three different categories or factors. Two-Factor Authentication, or 2FA, is a subset of MFA wherein only two credentials are required, but MFA can use any number of factors.
The most common example of this factor is the password, but it could also take the form of a PIN or a passphrase – it is something only you would know.
It is less likely that a hacker who has stolen your password would have stolen something physical from you too. This second factor confirms that you are in possession of a specific item like mobile phones, physical tokens, and key-fobs.
Valid8Pro provides a simple and secure method for confirmation via text message or pop-up notifications on your mobile phone or generating a unique code using a Valid8Pro HSM.
Valid8Pro leverages the technology available in our modern everyday gadgets, namely mobiles or laptops, for secure biometric identification of the users using fingerprints and face recognition.
