Integrating Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) or Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) into Third-Party Apps and Websites

3 minutes read

In an era where critical data travels across a myriad of digital platforms, the importance of impenetrable access control cannot be underscored enough. While many third-party applications and websites now form the backbone of many businesses, they often lack an essential security component – Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) or Two-Factor Authentication (2FA). Here’s why it’s crucial and how Datawiza is revolutionizing this space.

The Imperative for MFA or 2FA in Third-Party Applications and Websites

The desire for speed and convenience in digital interactions has led to a rising curve of third-party applications and websites. Though these platforms offer impressive features, they sometimes fall short on providing comprehensive access control methods like MFA or 2FA, leaving a gap in your security posture.

Lack of MFA (2FA) on these platforms leads to vulnerability against cyber-attacks. Single-factor authentication, such as password-only access, has proved insufficient in warding off the increasing intensity and sophistication of cyber threats.

MFA enhances online security by requiring additional proofs of identification, encapsulating ‘something you know’ (like a password), ‘something you have’ (like a device), and ‘something you are’ (biometrics).

Moreover, MFA is increasingly becoming part of compliance with strict regulatory standards like PCI DSS, HIPAA, and GDPR. Havens of sensitive information, third-party applications and websites often need to adhere to these standards, making the need for MFA even more imperative.

Datawiza: The Bridge to Secure Third-Party Platforms

To instill a stronger guard against unauthorized access, Datawiza steps into this chasm with its cloud-native access management solution, the Datawiza Access Proxy (DAP). Acting as an intermediary between your digital resources and users, DAB integrates smoothly with MFA providers like Microsoft Entra ID, Amazon Cognito, Okta, Cisco Duo and others, and enforces MFA across third-party applications and websites.

With DAP in your security architecture, every user’s identity is stringently validated before they’re allowed access to your digital resources, immensely elevating your line of defense. See the following digram for your references.
