Podcast: What is Multi-factor Authentication?

Plurilock CEO Ian Paterson recently chatted about multi-factor authentication with Tom Eston from The Shared Security Podcast, in Episode 58.

Starting at 2:14 in the podcast, they discuss what constitutes good MFA and how organizational attempts to add a second-layer are falling short. They discuss issues with secret questions, hardware tokens, and SMS-based authentication, as well as balancing ease of use and privacy ramifications. 

Listen to the podcast to hear their discussion on the best practices for multi-factor authentication.
