Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) - Duo
Multi-Factor authentication (MFA) is an online security system for your sensitive and personal information. It requires more than just a password for access. The goal is to create a layered defense for your data so that an unauthorized person finds it more difficult to access. If your password becomes compromised, there will be another level of security to keep your information safe.
BSC uses Duo Security MFA to provide you with even better security for your sensitive information.
