Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)


MFA provides enhanced security for data systems. When MFA is enabled for a system, logging in to that system will require you to provide an additional form of authentication, as well as your username and password, to verify your identity. Additional authentication might include:

  • Text Token - One-Time Passcode provided by a text message;
  • Push Notifications - Deny or approve from your Smartphone;
  • Soft Token - A rotating 6-digit code provided by a Smartphone app; or
  • Hard Token - A rotating 6-digit code provided by a key-fob device.
