Two factor authentication is all about having two layers of security – it’s often what you know (like a password) and what you have (like a changing security code generated by a 3rd party service that you must enter each time to access a device or software).
Another way to increase your level of protection is to encrypt your keystrokes. Sounds overboard but sophisticated hackers are using software and other technology to capture your keystrokes as you type!
According to a recent data breach study by Verizon, businesses with 11 to 100 employees are by far the most targeted groups being attacked, over 4 times more than the second highest group (101 to 1000). Most of these attacks come from the outside using keylogging malware.
Anti-virus programs are simply not enough says George Waller, EVP of StrikeForce
If you want to boost your data security consider going beyond traditional security solutions (which you still need) and adding keystroke encryption and two factor authentication to your security arsenal.
