What is Multi-factor Authentication (MFA)?
Multi-factor authentication ( MFA) is a security system that requires more than one piece of evidence ( known as 'factor') to authenticate the user for login or other transaction.
Entering your username and one password alone is considered a single-factor authentication. Multi-factor Authentication ( MFA) adds a second level of authentication to an account log-in, decreasing the likelihood that others can compromise your account.
With PT-X MFA the factors ( evidence of identity) are:
- Something you know, your user name & password
- Something you have, a one-time pass code ( OTP) from the PT-X MFA token or PT-X authenticator app.
