Multifactor authentication (MFA) is a critical security requirement for every organization, regardless of size and industry. But not every MFA solution is created equal. Your investment in MFA should be well-thought-out. Not only does your chosen MFA solution need to meet the requirements you have today, but it needs to enable and secure the future growth and evolution of your business. This evaluation guide will help you understand the key factors you need to consider when investing in MFA.
Your MFA choice determines how well you can protect access to all your internal resources, as well as your ability to provide frictionless experiences for your internal employees and external customers.
