Equifax Provides Secure Multi-factor Authentication
The recent news about the breach at a major security company has given many organizations cause for concern about their own data security, particularly when using tokens. Complete data security combines multiple authentication strategies with appropriate enterprise risk solutions. Security should always include encryption of data, strong authentication combining passwords and second factor authentication, and policies mitigating possible social engineering. Most importantly, security is based on an awareness of who has access to your data.
