Two Factor Authentication Benefits

With identity theft becoming a significant problem, Internet security is becoming more important every day. For many companies, creating a secure login process for identity verification is critical to keeping sensitive information safe from unauthorized access. One method available for secure login is 2 factor authentication, which allows the user to prove their identity using more than one type of authentication factor, such as a password or security question along with a USB card, ID badge, or some other form of identification that is kept by the person. A good example of this is an ATM machine, which requires the ATM card along with the PIN number to gain access. Neither items is usable without the other.

There are several benefits to using two factor authentication with identity verification software. One of those benefits, of course, is enhanced security. Passwords alone can be easily lost or stolen, but with two factor authentication, a stolen password alone would be useless to the criminal. Without the second factor of authentication in their possession, they would be unable to pass the online identity authentication process, which keeps the account securely protected.

Another benefit of two factor authentication is reduced risk. With single factor identification, thieves have only one factor to break, such as guessing the password with the use of brute force software. By adding an additional layer of protection, identity authentication becomes more difficult to crack and increases the risk of a hacker being caught, which may encourage criminals to move on to easier targets, resulting in greater security and a reduced risk of loss for the company.

With the use of two factor authentication, the identity verification process becomes much more secure, but it is still not unbreakable. The proper education of end users is still necessary to ensure that identifying information is being kept secure and that passwords are not easy to guess or steal. Adding as much complexity to the login process as possible increases the security of the system and reduces the risk of unauthorized access.

    – set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”
    – Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”
    -Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to some number like 30 ( this means it will make 30 requests at once) you can set it more than 30, but the network administrators do not like it.

  • Right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer.
  • Name it nglayout.initialpaint.delay and set its value to 0 (Zero, this value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it  receives.)
