If you rely on passwords alone to control access to your systems and data, you’re putting your organization at serious risk of a costly breach. Today, most security experts recommend requiring two-factor authentication (2FA), which supplements the traditional password with a secret code sent to the user by SMS or email. Inperium Sell includes 2FA out of the box, enabling you to dramatically enhance the security of your sales data without imposing any significant burden on your staff.
Your CRM not only contains valuable data; it’s the sales and marketing hub for your IT ecosystem. Inperium Sell helps you keep intruders out of your systems by providing reliable 2FA. In addition to their username and password, users must enter a secret code sent to their phone or email. Hackers who steal or buy passwords are blocked at the door!
Strong access control is a core requirement of most data protection regulations, including PCI DSS, SOX, GDPR and HIPAA. Taking advantage of the two-factor authentication built into Imperium Sell is an easy and effective way to comply with these stringent mandates, while also satisfying your own internal security policies.
The two-factor authentication in Inperium Sell does not force you to purchase and learn any special tools, such as a code generator or an authentication app, nor does it require your users to carry special key fobs or other gadgets. Instead, it sends a verification code directly to the user’s phone number or email address. It’s convenient for them and cost effective for you.
Two-factor authentication is an effective method of strengthening access control to IT systems and data. With 2FA, users typically must enter their user ID and password, and the system will send them a one-time security code that they must enter within a certain period of time. This process renders stolen credentials useless to a would-be attacker.
Two-factor authentication is a globally recognized best practice for improving security. Many industry, country, state, and local data protection standards require strong access controls, and 2FA is a great way to satisfy those requirements and protect your data.
It is possible to bypass 2FA, but it’s not easy. Attackers would need to not only somehow get your username and password, but also manage to intercept the verification code sent to your phone or email in time to enter it before it expires.
