Multi-factor Authentication

Security by combination

Authentication using a number of different methods increases security compared to systems with simpler password authentication.

Safety first: combine multiple authentication methods

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a security mechanism, which authenticates people using more than one required security and validation method. Because authentication with just a username and password is not secure and is also vulnerable to hacking.

There are basically four types of authentication methods. They are based on possession, knowledge, location, and biometric features. For example, users own an identified device, know a password, log in at their location from a certain IP address, and have a unique fingerprint. The combination of these identification methods ensures to the greatest possible extent that those wanting to access resources are really who they say they are. The more sophisticated the MFA, the more secure the system. However, user friendliness cannot be sacrificed.


Reduce fraud up to 99%.

Not every online process requires the same level of security. That’s why Nevis can be configured so that the system chooses the strength of the authentication measures based on the level of risk, thus always guaranteeing maximum user friendliness.

Benefits of multi-factor authentication

Multi-factor authentication facilitates maximum user friendliness because biometric procedures like facial recognition and keystroke dynamics require neither time nor effort from users. At the same time, they increase protection against unauthorized access since users tend to sidestep more complex manual security measures. MFA is therefore very effective at complicating identity theft. This is especially important when it comes to sensitive processes like payments and access to documents requiring protection.

  • Improved security through a combination of authentication methods 
  • Increased user friendliness with biometric procedures 
  • Hinders identity theft
  • More flexibility when it comes to protecting resources

Which verticals and industries benefit from multi-factor authentication?

MFA is implemented when the authentication and validation of an individual is of the utmost priority. In fact, PSD2 made it obligatory for financial services providers. However, a data breach can damage a company’s reputation across all industries and lead to loss of trust among customers. As such, MFA is suited to all companies that value data security as much as user friendliness.
