Length:  7 pages

Typical web applications are protected with single-factor authentication: a user name and password. These credentials, in addition to being difficult to manage, leave sensitive data and applications vulnerable to a variety of common attacks. As enterprises adopt more cloud applications, addressing this threat will become critical. Unlike older on-premises applications, cloud applications are accessible to anyone on the public Internet. Multifactor authentication (MFA) is designed to protect against the range of attacks that rely on stealing user credentials.

Read this whitepaper to learn about moving beyond user names and passwords, and how Okta's MFA solution for on premises and cloud apps provides both the highest security and simplest administration possible.
