Why upgrade your MFA to Adaptive Authentication?

Wednesday, February 6, 2019
9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. (PDT)

In the past, the concept of username and password was sufficient to authenticate a user. With the growth of online businesses, users and the increased room for identity theft, we need far more advanced mechanisms.

Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) emerged as an answer to this problem where it created a layered defense and made it more difficult for an unauthorized person to access a target such as a physical location, computing device, web service, network or a database.

However, even though multi-factor authentication provided additional and better security for enterprises, there are practicality issues with the implementation given the need for increased convenience for users. This webinar will explore the emerging of MFA, the pitfalls, why you should upgrade your MFA and best possible alternatives for MFA.
