Two Factor Authentication

With the ever increasing need to access enterprise applications and resources on the network, how do organizations ensure the security of its information systems and provide access only to the authorized people?
 

The types of user authentication are

  • What you know – Passwords
  • What you have – Token / Smart Card
  • What you are – Biometrics

The most common method used to secure the access - the password, has now outlived its purpose. The solution therefore, is to strengthen access with more factors of authentication and not depend on passwords alone. Biometric as a factor of authentication is one of the best methods to protect the organization’s sensitive data by ensuring only authorized persons get access to resources. The problems of password compromise, impersonation & identity theft are eliminated by using biometric technologies.
