Weak, default or stolen passwords are a primary source of data breaches. To better protect your business-critical applications and data, you need to confirm a users identity when they login to their cloud workspace.
Two-factor authentication (2FA) strengthens access security by requiring an additional factor (i.e. method) besides your username and password. This second factor is normally something you have – like your smartphone and app to approve authentication requests.
Without verifying a login via a physical device associated to you, remote attackers can’t pretend to be you in order to gain unauthorized access to your business-critical applications and data. By integrating two-factor authentication with your cloud workspace, attackers are unable to access your cloud desktops and application without also possessing your physical device needed to complete the second factor.
