Password security has been used in business and home computing since security became a concern when accessing data. Though passwords have grown in complexity and length over time, making brute force attacks more difficult, many people still use easily guessed passwords, write them next to the machine they are designed to protect or don’t change them regularly. Multi-Factor Authentication requires the password plus another code to access your network and data. The second code changes with each login and is generated on a key fob or can be sent to the user via text, phone or email. Having two forms of authentication, one of which is on the users’ person, makes compromised passwords much less of a threat.
