Passwords are a commonly-used method of digital security, but humble passwords are often a security risk and can be cracked within minutes.
So if ‘passwords’ are so vulnerable, what should we do?
That's why two-factor authentication (2FA) has emerged. 2FA adds a second layer of identity verification to secure user accounts. By combining account passwords with a second authentication factor, attackers cannot access your accounts even if they obtain or crack your passwords.
Turnsteel Authentication Server - Token Management System (Turnsteel AS-TMS) is a two-factor authentication (2FA) solution - a type of multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution.
MFA based on 3 specific factors:
What you know (knowledge factor)
What you have (possession factor)
Who you are (inherence factor)
Turnsteel also provides anti-phishing mechanisms and secures your user account from attackers exploiting weak or stolen credentials.
