Securing TSplus Remote Access with 2FA

Security in an office is simple. Doors can be locked, desktop PCs are difficult to remove. Working from home or anywhere outside the main office brings new challenges. What options are open to organizations who need their staff to stay home and work remotely? Let's explore the available methods for securing PCs in the remote workplace, and why TSplus 2FA is a great solution.

Two-Factor Authentication

 Passwords Are Not Enough!

Passwords are the most common form of security. Whether chosen by the user or business management, they can either be guessed or easily forgotten.

One method to prevent password corruption is to use a password generator tool which frequently and randomly creates new alphanumeric combinations. This process is not without its own problems. When you have multiple systems this method can quickly become a nightmare to manage. On the other hand, the staff has to find new ways to remember the ever-changing passwords. Their solution is often Post-It notes dotted around the edge of their monitors, which is not as secure as they might think...

Unfortunately, cyber-criminals are good at finding new attack vectors, especially now when so many of the rules about how and where people work have changed. With the right bots, passwords are easy to guess and steal from naïve employees recently forced to become remote workers.

Remote Access Security is a Multi-faceted Solution

Using multiple layers of protection is the most reliable way to make remote connections safe. 

The next step in increased authentication security is Two-Factor Authentication. The concept is simple: access is granted after two conditions are met - something the user knows and something they have. This is usually a strong password and a PIN code received on a personal device (mobile, tablet, etc...).

2FA is the height of security - perfect for in-house and remote systems alike.
