Do not settle for SMS based MFA if you do not have to. Security experts have been warning SMS based MFA has serious security implications
for years now. It is not as hard as you would hope to intercept an SMS message, and your MFA has been effectively bypassed. With DUO’s Push technology, you can be assured the request is only going to the device you want it to. It even works with your Apple Watch, if that is your thing. I am still waiting for my Garmin to catch up!
DUO, when properly implemented, allows to eliminate potential risks. In the first half of 2019 alone, 4.1 billion records were exposed
. With those kinds of numbers, your information will likely be exposed at some point. It is no longer a question of if, but when you will be affected. Do you use a different password for each system you access? Or are you one of the almost 52% of people that re-use passwords
across services? MFA solutions, like DUO
, let you sleep at night knowing your accounts are protected.
