Enhance Your Data Security
With the recent world wide security scares known as Spectre and Meltdown, we thought it prudent to inform our existing and potential customers of one of Cicayda’a advanced security offerings. In addition to the security best practices already implemented into our document review and legal hold software, Cicayda allows users to enable Two-Factor Authentication functionality.
What is Two-Factor Authentication?
What is Two-Factor Authentication? Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is an extra layer of security for protecting login access. Also called 2-Step Verification, the sign-in process requires a user name and password plus an auto-generated security code that is unique every time. This additional security code, or authentication code, is retrieved through a mobile app on your phone.
Two-factor authentication protects your account if your user name and password have been compromised or stolen.
How It Works?
Without this authentication code in their hands, a hacker is prevented from moving forward in the login process, even if they’ve managed to obtain your user name and password.
While at first glance two-factor authentication may appear cumbersome and time-consuming, the time and effort invested with this extra layer of security is worth it.
Enabling two factor authentication can take just minutes. Today, it’s a necessary preventative measure, which can avoid hijackings of your client’s data and the lost time spent recovering your potential losses.
