Many organizations today rely on passwords as the foundational layer of security for access to sensitive business data. With the rapid growth of smartphones and tablets, expanding use of cloud services, and nearly ubiquitous mobile workforce, passwords make for a shaky foundation. Today's companies require too many passwords, and often too complex (or frequently expiring) passwords to remember, leading employees to find workarounds or re-use passwords for multiple accounts. Highly sophisticated attackers target these users to take advantage of vulnerable passwords and holes in security, which could result in a costly breach for your company.

Bottom line: Protect all your access points with a strong two-factor authentication solution that is easy for employees to use and mobile-friendly.
