Multi-Factor Authentication Requires a Fallback Plan

As seen in the recent breaches of Uber, Cisco, and other organizations, multi-factor authentication (MFA) isn’t stopping the most determined adversaries.  In response to increasing adoption of MFA, threat actors are crafting elaborate exploits that bypass and even breach MFA with potentially devastating results.  

MFA is a valuable access control system – but it isn’t foolproof.  You still need another line of defense to ensure your crown-jewel assets stay safe in the face of a catastrophic breach.
