CINS ARMY BRIEF
Is Mfa Really That Hard?
SMBs are behind in adopting multi-factor authentication
There are a lot of headlines that could start with the words, “SMBs are behind in adopting …” Here’s one you might not have though of: Most cybersecurity companies don’t focus their marketing and sales on smaller organizations, so the SMBs aren’t exposed to all the options.
Another reason? While MFA is relatively easy to adopt for, say, Microsoft 365 or Google Workspace, it’s difficult or impossible to apply it to other vital legacy systems these small companies use to run their businesses.
What’s the answer? I don’t know, but adding MFA into the mix with other classic cyber hygiene basics like asset inventory, patching, and defense in depth is a start.
