A cloud based secure Multi-Factor Authentication service providing global instant authentication from a flexible range of tokens.
The intent of Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is to provide a higher degree of assurance of the identity of the individual attempting to access a resource, such as physical location, computing device, network or a database. MFA creates a multi-layered mechanism that an unauthorised user would have to defeat in order to gain access.
This document describes the industry-accepted principles and best practices associated with multi-factor authentication. The guidance in this document is intended for any organisation evaluating, implementing, or
upgrading a MFA solution, as well as providers of MFA solutions.
