Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is an authentication method in which a computer user is granted access only after successfully presenting two or more pieces of evidence (or factors) to establish identity. The MFA offered by Delivra requires the use of a username, password, and a security token to verify identity.
Why should I use it?
The use of multiple authentication factors to prove one's identity is based on the premise that an unauthorized actor is unlikely to be able to supply the factors required for access. If at least one of the components is missing or supplied incorrectly, the user's identity is not established with sufficient certainty and access then remains blocked.
Where is this functionality?
Find MFA setup in your personal administrator settings. When logged into your account, click the Person icon located in the top navigation on the right-hand side. Choose "My Settings" from the drop-down menu. Click "Security" on the left-hand menu.
