Gartner Report: Multi-Factor Authentication is a Must for Midsize Enterprises

In this report, you’ll learn:

  • The fundamentals of multi-factor authentication (MFA) and how midsize enterprises (MSEs) can leverage it
  • The key security challenges MSEs face, such as phishing campaigns and ransomware attacks
  • The importance of addressing inherent vulnerabilities and phishing
  • Why MSEs must add MFA to their list of cybersecurity activities

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.
