Here’s how cyber criminals try to hack your accounts while you sleep

Are you tired of the constant flood of notifications from your multi-factor authentication (MFA) app? Unfortunately, cybercriminals are taking advantage of this “MFA fatigue” to gain access to your valuable business data. This article highlights the significance of MFA in securing your data and introduces a new weapon in the fight against MFA fatigue: number matching in Microsoft Authenticator. Discover how this feature prevents cyber criminals from exploiting notification fatigue and how biometric authentication adds an additional layer of security to your MFA process. Stay one step ahead of cyber threats with DOYB Cyber / DOYB Technical Solutions, Inc.’s Cyber Security Risk Assessments (CSRAs) and enhance the security and convenience of your MFA system.

Understanding MFA Fatigue and its Exploitation

MFA is vital for data security, requiring users to verify their identity through multiple factors. However, the constant flood of MFA notifications can be overwhelming, leading to MFA fatigue. Cyber criminals exploit this fatigue by bombarding employees with continuous MFA notifications, increasing the likelihood of unauthorized access due to frustration, tiredness, or the desire to stop the notifications.

Introducing Number Matching in Microsoft Authenticator

To combat MFA fatigue, Microsoft Authenticator now offers number matching as a solution. When you receive an MFA notification, the app displays a randomly generated number that must be inputted to authenticate the login attempt. This ensures that you’re verifying the correct login and prevents cyber criminals from capitalizing on notification fatigue.

Leveraging Biometric Authentication for Enhanced Security

In addition to number matching, Microsoft Authenticator supports biometric authentication, enabling users to verify their identity using their face, fingerprint, or other unique physical features. This advanced authentication method adds an extra layer of security, protecting your sensitive data from unauthorized access.

Stay Ahead of Cyber Criminals with Enhanced Security Measures

By implementing number matching and leveraging biometric authentication in Microsoft Authenticator, your business can stay ahead of cyber criminals and better protect sensitive data. These security measures help combat MFA fatigue and ensure that only authorized individuals can access your business systems and information.
