Enabling Two Factor Authentication

Jul 10, 2019

Back in the early days of authentication, organisations were reliant on

hardware tokens to generate a secure passcode. The type you’d associate

with online banking. But that solution was clumsy and prone to unforeseen

expenses – with tokens frequently lost, broken or expiring.

Whats is 2FA?

Two Factor Authentication or 2FA is is an additional security layer for your

business – helping to address the vulnerabilities of a standard password-

only approach. Modern tokenless systems use mobile devices to make roll-

out and management much easier. Here at Tricoda we use Google Authenticator.

Google Authenticator is a software-based authenticator that implements

two-step verification services using the Time-based One-time Password

Algorithm and HMAC-based One-time Password algorithm, for

authenticating users of mobile applications by Google.
