Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) Solution
Privacy and security are essential to any organisation, including healthcare and medical practices. No matter the size or type of practice you run, you need to make sure that only you and authorised staff are able to access sensitive data, particularly information pertaining to patients or clients, billings, and accounting. A multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution can help with that. It will provide an intelligent and secure way to access critical data to prevent unauthorised use and other issues, like data loss and theft.
Why you need it
These days, having a strong password is not enough. Hackers and attackers are becoming more sophisticated with their methods, too. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to tell when they will target your practice. They could do it in the next hour, without you knowing it. In case you don’t know, 80 percent of security breaches are caused by compromised passwords. You need an agile and flexible multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution that can keep up with the rapidly changing IT landscape.
An organisation is likely to lose a lot of money and its hard-earned reputation when there is a data breach. Moreover, such an incident could cause a decline in productivity and more costs associated with trying to retrieve the compromised data. Multi-factor authentication can reduce your risk of experiencing a security breach by up to 75 percent. It may even boost the productivity of your staff by 50 percent when it lets your team work securely from any device anytime and anywhere.
However, a multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution does not have to come as a separate feature for your case management software.

The absence of strong security solutions can cause your clients to lose their trust in you, especially when it results in their sensitive information getting leaked to shady third-parties.

How it works
A multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution can be provided in different ways. It can ask for a one-time password and apply other authentication measures to make sure that the person accessing the app is indeed authorised to do so. Contextual access policies may be created to assess risk factors (i.e., network, IP, device, location, etc.) at every aspect of the authentication process. Risk levels may be matched with appropriate access decisions, such as denying or allowing access, prompting for multi-factor authentication, or applying an authentication method, which does not require a password.
