Frequently Asked Questions

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a security mechanism that requires users to provide multiple forms of verification to access a system, application, or resource. Instead of relying solely on a username and password, MFA adds one or more additional factors to the authentication process, such as:

  • Something you know: A password, PIN, or security question.
  • Something you have: A hardware token, smart card, or mobile device.
  • Something you are: Biometric data, such as a fingerprint or facial recognition.

MFA is crucial because it significantly enhances the security of the authentication process. Even if a user’s password is compromised, an attacker would still need to possess the additional verification factor(s) to gain unauthorised access. This extra layer of security makes it much more difficult for cybercriminals to breach accounts and steal sensitive data.

Implementing MFA is particularly important for organisations that handle sensitive information, have remote employees, or are subject to regulatory compliance requirements. It helps protect against common threats such as phishing, credential stuffing, and brute-force attacks.

By adopting MFA, organisations can:

  • Reduce the risk of unauthorised access and data breaches
  • Strengthen access control and protect sensitive resources
  • Comply with industry regulations and security standards
  • Enhance user confidence and trust in the security of their accounts

F7Cybersec’s MFA-as-a-Service makes it easy for organisations to implement and manage MFA across their applications and systems, providing a robust security solution to safeguard against unauthorised access.

F7Cybersec’s MFA-as-a-Service supports a wide range of authentication methods to cater to the diverse needs and preferences of organisations and their users. Our platform offers the following authentication options:

  1. Push Notifications: Users receive a push notification on their registered mobile device, prompting them to approve or deny the authentication request with a simple tap.

  2. One-Time Codes (OTP): Users are provided with a unique, time-sensitive code via SMS, email, or a dedicated authenticator app. They need to enter this code along with their username and password to gain access.

  3. Biometric Authentication: Our platform supports biometric authentication methods such as fingerprint scanning and facial recognition. Users can use their biometric data to verify their identity during the authentication process.

  4. Hardware Tokens: We support the use of hardware tokens, such as USB tokens or smart cards, which generate one-time codes or require physical insertion for authentication.

  5. Software Tokens: Our platform is compatible with popular software token applications, such as Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, and Authy. Users can generate one-time codes on their mobile devices for authentication.

  6. Phone Callback: Users receive an automated phone call on their registered phone number, prompting them to confirm their identity by pressing a specific key or providing a voice response.

  7. Security Questions: As an additional layer of security, users can be prompted to answer predefined security questions during the authentication process.

Our MFA-as-a-Service platform allows organisations to choose the authentication methods that best suit their security requirements, user preferences, and operational needs. We provide flexibility and support for a range of authentication factors to ensure a secure and user-friendly experience.

Moreover, our platform supports adaptive authentication, where the required authentication factors can be dynamically adjusted based on the risk level of the access request. This allows for a more granular and context-aware approach to MFA, enhancing security while minimising user friction.

F7Cybersec’s MFA-as-a-Service is designed to integrate seamlessly with your existing applications and systems, minimising disruption to your IT environment and user workflows. Our platform supports various integration methods to ensure compatibility with a wide range of technologies and architectures.

The primary integration options include:

  4. API Integration: We provide a comprehensive set of APIs that allow you to integrate MFA functionality directly into your custom applications. Our APIs enable you to enroll users, trigger authentication requests, validate authentication responses, and manage user settings programmatically.

  5. Agent-based Integration: For applications that do not natively support MFA, we offer lightweight agents that can be installed on servers or endpoints to enable MFA for those systems. These agents intercept authentication requests and redirect them to our MFA platform for validation.

  6. Single Sign-On (SSO) Integration: Our platform integrates with popular SSO solutions, such as Microsoft Azure AD, Okta, and OneLogin. By configuring our MFA-as-a-Service as an authentication provider within your SSO solution, you can extend MFA protection to all applications connected to your SSO ecosystem.

Our team of integration experts will work closely with your IT staff to assess your existing infrastructure, identify the most suitable integration approach, and guide you through the configuration process. We provide detailed documentation, sample code, and support to ensure a smooth and successful integration.

At F7Cybersec, we understand the critical importance of ensuring the availability and reliability of our MFA-as-a-Service platform. We employ a range of measures to guarantee that our service remains accessible and functional, even in the face of potential disruptions or high-demand scenarios.

Here’s how we ensure the availability and reliability of our MFA-as-a-Service:

  1. Redundant and Geo-Distributed Infrastructure: Our MFA platform is built on a highly redundant and geographically distributed infrastructure. We operate multiple data centres across different regions to minimise the risk of service interruptions due to localised failures or disasters. If one data centre experiences an outage, traffic is automatically routed to another available data centre, ensuring continuous service availability.

  2. High Availability Architecture: Within each data centre, we employ a high availability architecture that includes load balancing, clustering, and failover mechanisms. This ensures that if one component or server fails, the workload is seamlessly distributed to other available resources, maintaining uninterrupted service.

  3. Elastic Scalability: Our platform is designed to automatically scale based on the demand and usage patterns. During peak periods or sudden spikes in authentication requests, our infrastructure dynamically allocates additional resources to handle the increased load. This elastic scalability ensures that our MFA service remains responsive and available, even under heavy usage.

  4. Robust Monitoring and Alerting: We have implemented comprehensive monitoring and alerting systems to proactively identify and address potential issues before they impact service availability. Our monitoring tools continuously track the health and performance of our infrastructure, applications, and dependencies. In the event of any anomalies or threshold breaches, our team is immediately alerted for prompt investigation and resolution.
