Virtual private networks (VPNs) are a tried and true method for providing remote access to internal applications. Essentially, they create a private, encrypted tunnel for an off-site user to connect to applications in a corporate data center. But VPNs aren’t a silver bullet – organizations that provide users with just a username and password to log into their VPN connections could be exposed to data breaches if those credentials are stolen.
Protecting your VPN access with multi-factor authentication (MFA) adds an additional layer of defense. In this guide, we discuss five reasons you should secure your VPN with MFA to ensure trusted access, including:
- To protect against credential theft
- To achieve regulatory compliance
- To gain visibility into all devices
