In today’s email age, the biggest challenge that most companies face is data security. Therefore, it remains the top priority across all organizations.
TWO FACTOR AUTHENTICATION
At Rediffmail Enterprise, we have made some modifications to the security features that make your business email more secure. The unauthorized access to email accounts is the major concern raised by most IT administrators of organizations today. This breach is usually caused when users access their email accounts on public Wi-Fi platforms or set the same password for more than of their email addresses, social networking accounts, e-commerce site profiles, other online profiles and so on.
Our team performed a thorough analysis of the data based on the issues faced by the administrators and rolled out the Two Factor Authentication (TFA) feature within the current interface to address the security concerns. TFA is a technology to ensure that only the genuine owner of the account is allowed to access it. When TFA is enabled for a user, the system sends a four digit pass-code to the user’s registered mobile number. The user can only access the mailbox if both the password and pass-code are verified. The TFA also ensures that only the verified user can make security changes to the account like changing the Password and using add Auto-Forward feature.
How to enable two factor authentication for my domain?
As an administrator, you can enable TFA for the entire domain or selected users by clicking on Domain level management within the admin panel and further clicking on ‘Feature Access Restriction”.
What happens if user have not specified his mobile number?
The user must add mobile number to the account for enabling the TFA feature as it needs a registered mobile number to send the pass-code. If user has not specified his mobile number then TFA will not work for him
Does TFA works for international mobile numbers?
A pass-code would be sent to user’s mobile even if the user is based out of India. Activating this feature will surely assist to keep your business email more secure. We are also continuously looking to enhance our current email solutions with more and more advanced features.
