Security Boulevard: Is MFA a Security Illusion?
FIDO2 is a strong authentication standard that detects illegitimate MFA challenges and never presents them to the employee — replacing the “almost certain” decision-making of a human with the “always certain” decision-making of technology. FIDO2 uses end-to-end cryptography to ensure that only a legitimate user can trigger that second-factor challenge and eliminates the possibility of an attacker bypassing MFA to gain access to an account. To eliminate the security risks associated with current MFA approaches, enterprises should consider enhancing their authentication by deploying an MFA solution that is based on FIDO2 standards.
