MSEs face a host of authentication challenges: from phishing campaigns and ransomware attacks to the lack of a CISO to advocate for security initiatives to being unprepared to address the risks of moving to the cloud.
According to Gartner recommendations, “MSE CIOs whose IT leadership responsibilities include identity and access management (IAM) must: - Address inherent vulnerabilities and phishing attempts by implementing multifactor authentication (MFA) on all critical or high-priority systems and accounts. - Prioritize security and IAM initiatives by using data to make strong business cases to other members of the C-suite or the board of directors.”
In this report, Gartner suggests, “MFA is a necessary, strong first step toward better security hygiene.” Read the report now to learn more about why MFA is a must for MSEs.
