Why your MFA Will Not Keep The Bad Guys Out

MFA Requirements Have Changed. Cybercriminals have become more sophisticated in their attacks, and traditional MFA that relies on passwords and other weak factors can't keep up. Remote working has expanded and rapid cloud adoption demands that companies ensure the identity of the user behind every device, and assess the level of risk before access. Unlike traditional MFA, Beyond Identity can protect your data from advanced attacks. Traditional MFA relies on weak factors like passwords and one-time codes. Beyond Identity eliminates passwords and only uses strong factors like asymmetric cryptography and biometrics to protect your organization from phishing, ransomware attacks, and other password-based attacks. Gain control over all users and devices requesting access.

We'll show you how you can purchase AND roll out MFA that your users will love. Remove friction, empower your users, remove productivity killers and reduce cost.
