Two Factor Authentication Makes Data More Secure and Restricts Access to Resources

Making certain types of data and resources more secure is important for organizations today. Businesses of all sizes have to be careful with who has access to research and development project data, financial data, and other vital information about the company. One way to control access while at the same time making data more secure is to implement two factor authentication.

Implement Two Factor Authentication by Creating Digital Certificates

Two factor authentication can be implemented by creating and issuing digital certificates. The digital certificates could be installed locally onto a user’s computer, placed onto an employee’s ID card or stored on a portable USB drive. Your employees may even have several digital certificates for this type of authentication method depending on how your organization uses them. You might need a different certificate for connecting to the internet, your VPN, or cloud environments.
