What is Multifactor Authentication (MFA)?
What would happen if an employee carelessly left their password to your system unsecured? What if that password ended up for sale on the dark web, as part of a data breach?
Multifactor authentication (MFA) is a password system that’s specifically designed to address this threat. MFA is deceptively simple security tool, but it can protect the “front door” entry to your systems like nothing else. How? By requiring more than one method of identification before a user/employee gains access to your systems.
This simple action foils nearly every hacker attempting to use your employee’s stolen network credentials. It’s considered a standard cybersecurity requirement for most companies, because it works. And best of all, with Integris, we’ll manage all the details for you, setting up, managing, monitoring, and servicing your accounts.

Multifactor Authentication is part of a Responsible IT Architecture
There are nine tools that we use at Integris to help us ensure that the standards of a Responsible IT Architecture are met, and ensuring Multifactor Authentication is enabled is one of them.
When you work with us, we prefer to take a holistic security approach. For us, that means employing these nine pillar tools, working in tandem, to create a complete layer of protection around your systems. Whether all those tools come from us, or they are existing tools in your network, it’s important that they are updated, up to the standards of regulators/cyber insurers, and up to the security demands of your network.
We’ll work with you to make sure you can enable MFA throughout your organization, and and that it works well with your other tools to keep your company safe.
