Avaza has introduced Multi-factor authentication (MFA) to add extra security to help keep your data secure.
What is MFA?
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is an additional way of checking that it’s really you when you log in. It combines something you know (your username and password) with something you have (an authentication app on your smartphone or tablet). This second layer of security is designed to prevent anyone but you from accessing your account even if they know your password.
Mandate MFA for your Avaza Account
We have added two new settings that allows account admins to mandate multi-factor authentication as part of login flow to access your Avaza account.
- Require Multi-Factor Authentication for Team Members
- Require Multi-Factor Authentication for External Contacts
Configure MFA from User Profile Page
Any user can configure and manage MFA settings for their login from the User Profile page. MFA can be setup by a user even if it is not mandated by the account admin.
Whether you initiate MFA setup from the User Profile page or are redirected to it because an Account Admin has enforced it account-wide, the workflow is the same.
You will be redirected to an introductory page, then requested to select the MFA method, followed by configuration specific to the selected method.
Once MFA is setup, you will be requested to enter the required code as part of your login flow.
For step by step instructions on how to setup MFA please read our support article.
We hope you find this new feature useful and look forward to your feedback.
