Ipsidy Makes the Case for MFA Security in the Face of Rising Cybercrime

Ipsidy is singing the praises of multi-factor authentication in a new blog post.

Entitled “The Benefits of MultiFactor Authentication – A Definitive Guide,” the post offers a solid overview of the current digital security landscape, noting that cybercrime is on the rise, and laying out the three main kinds of authentication mechanisms – something you know, something you have, and something you are.

Understandably, Ipsidy’s post proceeds to focus on the latter, explaining that a Single Sign On solution featuring biometric authentication can help to eliminate the use of easy-to-hack passwords in the enterprise, while improving security and convenience.

Ipsidy is an expert on this specific topic, offering authentication solutions like Verified by Ipsidy, a mobile biometric MFA technology that “helps enterprises authenticate the identity of the person on the other side of everyday transactions,” according to the company. It’s an increasingly popular approach to authentication, and one that neatly combines both a possession credential (the user’s smartphone) and ‘something your are’ (the user’s face).

As Ipsidy’s blog post explains, today’s mobile devices offer “the height of digital convenience” in the workplace, but they also “introduce new challenges in terms of data security”. Fortunately, authentication specialists like Ipsidy are leveraging this same technology to enhance security, with multi-factor authentication delivering a compelling approach to fend off hackers and other malefactors.
