Why is MFA Important?

Enhanced Security: While passwords are a fundamental component of digital security, they are not foolproof. MFA acts as an extra hurdle, complicating efforts by unauthorised individuals to gain access.

Defence Against Phishing: Phishing remains a popular tactic among cybercriminals, designed to manipulate individuals into revealing their passwords. With MFA in place, a password alone is insufficient for gaining entry to your account.

Data Breach Protection: In the unfortunate scenario of a data breach, MFA adds an additional layer of security. Even if attackers obtain your password, they will need more than that to access your account.

Peace of Mind: With MFA enabled, you can be more assured that your digital workspace and sensitive information are shielded from unwarranted intrusion.
