Strong authentication, an effective solution to protect yourself from cyberattacks
Strong authentication is now part of our daily life. The sophistication of data theft techniques is such that a simple authentication is no longer enough to guarantee optimal protection. Additional security is essential.
Increased use of connected devices and online services raise huge cybersecurity challenges whether for states, businesses or individuals. These new uses store more personal and confidentiels data every day. They break the traditional user security boundaries.
Increasingly sophisticated hacking techniques are emerging: MITM (Man-In-The-Middle), phishing attacks, malware and other cyber attacks that have become more complex. Strengthening access and data security becomes a necessity.
One of the mechanisms to increase security is strong authentication. What is strong authentication? Why is it effective? What are strong authentication methods?
