What is Multi-Factor Authentication?

Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) is an electronic authentication method that requires additional layers of validation to access network applications and resources.  You may have experienced this when your bank texts you a number to continue to log into your account.  For much of the State of Iowa enterprise, MFA is used for VPN login authentication. 

Why Multi-Factor Authentication?

The State of Iowa is moving towards a Zero Trust security model with Okta MFA.  This brings increased security rooted in the principle of never trust, always verify.
