Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

What is Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)?

The simplest, most effective way to make sure users really are who they say they are.

Multi-Factor authentication (MFA) strengthens access security by requiring at least two methods (also referred to as factors) to verify your identity. These factors can include something you know - like a username and password, plus something you have - like a smartphone app, to approve authentication requests.

MFA protects against phishing, social engineering and password brute-force attacks and secures your logins from attackers exploiting weak or stolen credentials. Reviewing company security policies on a regular basis is a must in today’s business world. Wolf Consulting’s WolfCare™ Multi-Factor Authentication service (powered by DUO Security) offers another solution to enhance your existing security solution.

WolfCare Multi-Factor Authentication brings that second layer of security to your business. Our solution uses a code or push notification sent to your smartphone to confirm your identity when accessing your accounts. This second layer of authentication means a hacker or other individual with bad intentions would need to steal your password and your phone to access your account.

How does it work?

After you enter your password—the first authentication factor—the second authentication factor arrives on your phone via a push notification, smartphone app, or text message.
