What is MFA?
To start, MFA is an acronym for Multifactor Authentification. Multifactor authentification, while it sounds complex, is actually a very simple concept that any business owner can understand. For years, when a person wanted to log onto a website, a username and password were sufficient. For reasons that will be explained later in this article, that basic method of login is no longer secure enough for the highly digital marketplace that has evolved within the past two decades. MFA is the process of using an additional factor to prove that the person logging into an online account is who they say they are.
