Compromised or stolen authentication credentials are still the most popular ways that cyber criminals are accessing applications and systems. Over 80% of hacking breaches are done by brute force or the use of stolen credentials.
Relying on just usernames and passwords to secure your systems is no longer considered safe. Malicious attacks against governments, companies, and individuals are more and more common.
According to the 2020 Verizon’s Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), 43% data breaches were attacks on the web application, more than double the results from last year. 67% of breaches were due to credential theft, errors and social attacks. Therefore, it’s very important to find more secure ways to protect your data.
An authentication factor is a piece of information used to authenticate a person's identity before granting a user access to an application or a data. The three most widely used authentication factors are:
Asking username and a password alone is the most common example of single-factor authentication. Two-factor authentication (2FA) involves two of the categories above. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) requires credentials from at least two or more categories. 2FA is a subset of MFA.
Gartner reports that by the year 2020 more than 25% of identified attacks in enterprises will involve IoT.
