- Bring things together with a password and documentation management solution
Give your technicians the rapid access they need to effectively support clients by implementing a secure password and IT documentation solution. This way, privileged access to client knowledge and information can be directly at their fingertips.
- Implement a multifactor authentication solution (MFA)
Double-up on your security by implementing a secondary device push-notification, call, SMS, or biometric identity access to your accounts. This will help ensure the user is the person they say they are!
- Partner your accounts with strong passwords
Automatically generate strong password strings that are different for all of your accounts. Do not reuse a previous password. It is best practice to use length rather than complexity to make your password harder to crack. Using three to four random words strung together, creating 16 characters or more, is ideal.
- Spend quality time maintaining your passwords
Every account should have a different password, stored in one spot. Using a management tool will allow an audit trail for who had access to what. If anything goes astray, it is of benefit to the company to be able to track and instantly modify sensitive accounts.
Using these four steps will help to make your security more resilient and your networks harder to hack.
