Poor Password Handling and the Rise of Multi-Factor Authentication

The State of Multi-Factor Authentication for SMBs

Passwords have failed, so what's next?

Password security is one of the most important issues facing information security today, and multi-factor authentication (MFA) technology mitigates the risk of password-only security today when providing access to corporate networks. But unfortunately, traditional MFA solutions are often difficult for businesses to implement and manage, especially those with limited IT resources. WatchGuard commissioned a survey of small and midsize business owners and IT decision-makers at companies with less than 1,000 employees in the United States, the UK and Australia to better understand the current state of password security and MFA usage.
