Add Security and Compliance with Multi-Factor Authentication
If you process credit cards in your accounting application, you are required to be PCI Compliant and utilize Multi Factor Authentication (MFA). As your hosting provider we can help you meet those ever-changing regulations, including adding MFA to your account.
MFA is a security system that requires more than one method of authentication to verify the user’s identity for a login.
Wikipedia defines Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a method of confirming a user’s claimed identity in which a computer user is granted access only after successfully presenting two or more pieces of evidence (or factors) to an authentication mechanism: knowledge (something the user and only the user knows), possession (something the user and only the user has), and inherence (something the user and only the user is).
PCI requirements state that users with remote access or hosted access to cardholder data must use MFA.MFA adds a layer of security and peace of mind for users while helping to meet the ever increasing payment card industry compliance standards.
You can quickly and easily meet this requirement by adding MFA to your account on Swizznet. MFA allows you to receive a call/text or email at login as an extra security measure. The cost to add MFA is $5/month/user.
