Mitigating Ransomware Attacks with Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Cyber Security, Newsletter

Ransomware attacks have increased 150% since the pandemic. But what is Ransomware and how could an attack effect your business? 

Simply, ransomware attacks can be initiated through various tactics, including email phishing, brute force attacks, and stolen passwords found on the dark web. With Ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) making it easier than ever for cyber criminals to carry out these attacks that encrypt your files and folders, preventing you from accessing all of your essential company data until you pay the attackers ransom. 

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is just one of the critical tools for preventing and responding to ransomware attacks. MFA protects user credentials, which is the primary way hackers gain access to systems, under a secondary layer of security authentication (also known as one time passwords) and it limits the attackers’ access to company resources. This is becoming increasingly required by regulations and insurers as a cyber security solution to protect your user accounts.  

Here at One2Call we can provide your business with the multi-factor authentication tools to protect your accounts, all offering a flexible and strong authentication method, including push notifications, one-time passwords, biometrics, single sign on and passwordless options, that works with on-premis and cloud applications.
