One way criminals get hold of information they shouldn’t is to target someone who has access to the data… you. Most systems like tramada® have a secure login with a password but is that enough? It’s surprisingly easy to steal your password!
One way to verify it’s really you logging in is with two factor authentication (2FA). 2FA uses a code or key that only you could possess, for example on your mobile, to be entered as part of the login process as well as the password – the 2nd factor.
When 2FA is first enabled in tramada®, a QR (Quick Response) code is displayed and scanned using a mobile app called Google Authenticator. The app generates a one time, six digit code, required to complete the login process. You can remember verification for a browser for 30 days, or choose to be prompted on each login. Verification is required to log in from a different device or a different browser on the same device.
2FA helps you meet your obligations in protecting your data, and your clients’ data. A core offering that should not be compromised. Enabling 2FA is free – shouldn’t you activate this security feature for all your employees who have access to your vital data?
