Learn what to look for when assessing and comparing two-factor authentication solutions.
One of the most foolproof ways for an online system to confirm, “Is it really you?” is by adding two-factor authentication. This provides a second identity check — preferably through a separate channel — before allowing access to an online system. Sounds simple enough, right? Of course, the devil is in the details, and not all two-factor authentication solutions are created equal.
This guide walks through some of the key areas of differentiation between two-factor authentication solutions and provides some concrete criteria for evaluating technologies and vendors.
In this guide you will learn:
How to evaluate the security, reliability, and scalability of a two-factor solution.
What kind of solution allows you to detect and react to potential threats.
How to determine the time and costs involved in rolling out a two-factor solution.
Key criteria to drive user adoption and increase productivity.
