With the rise of remote work, multi-factor authentication (MFA) has become more essential than ever. MFA can be used to protect authentications happening on different resources like workstations, VPNs, and enterprise applications. MFA effectively stops credential-based attacks, as it requires an additional authentication step besides the existing username and password-based authentication.
Because of the added security it offers, implementation of MFA is now considered a requirement for many compliance regulations like the GDPR, HIPAA, and more. But organizations should know that the tools used to implement MFA can also be exploited.
Rise in MFA hacks
Attackers are always on the look for new ways to hack into systems and applications, and since MFA is being extensively used to protect resources, they have now turned their attention on hacking MFA. By exploiting the technical loopholes present in MFA applications, they can intrude on the network or steal sensitive information such as user credentials.
MFA hacks mitigation
Even the FBI has recognized MFA hacks as an imminent threat to data security and has suggested strategies that can thwart attempts to hack MFA. These strategies address both technical and social engineering tactics.
