Two Factor Authentication provides a real benefit to Magento where security is concerned.
OverviewBack to top
Two Factor Authentication protects your Magento Admin Panel from Brute Force Attacks. This product functions by adding an additional field into the Magento Admin Login panel, which requires a code. It adds additional security to your Magento Admin Panel adding OTP (One Time Passcode) security. When you login to Magento you are provided with an additional 'Pass Code' field which has to be populated using a compatible One Time Passcode Mobile App which is detailed in our User Guide. Upon initial installation you will be guided through the process to activate 2FA for all your user accounts. On January 31st 2018 multi-factor authentication becomes a requirement of PCI DSS and this extension will support the increasing needs for your E-Commerce business to remain protected.
Two Factor Authentication by ZERO-1 is a Free module for Magento 1 & 2, Community and Enterprise. We are proud to be leaders in persuing the support of Small Businesses, many of whom are unaware of the requirements for PCI DSS. The most vulnerable aspect of your Magento business can often be Admin system access, given the power of Magento and the ability to change so many things. 2FA drastically increases security around Admin system access eliminating the risks now and obligtions in future.
Some other things which you should always to for best practice and PCI DSS;
- Change your passwords at least every 90 days
- Never provide your username/password to anyone else
- If creating users for 3rd parties (for support purposes) ensure these are removed when no longer needed
- Dont use obvious usernames (admin, your first name etc)
- Immediately install our 2FA extension!
ZERO-1 2FA uses OTP or One Time Passcode which requires an application installed on your smart phone. Full instructions are provided within the extension. We use the freely available FreeOTP application available for Android and iOS.
