Are employees undermining your security with weak and shared passwords?

Though most employees are not trying to compromise security, you should consider what you can reasonably expect from them given the proliferation of online accounts requiring passwords.  Commonly, 3-6% of employees will use weak passwords and even share them between accounts.  These kinds of insecure password practices result in leaked passwords, which are exploited in 81% of cyberattacks worldwide, and 61% of all attacks target businesses with less than 1,000 employees.


Therefore, you can no longer rely on just a password.

To avoid becoming a victim, you need additional proof of identity beyond a simple user name and password; such as is made possible with WatchGuard’s AuthPoint service.  AuthPoint delivers multi-factor authentication (MFA) safeguards on an easy-to-use Cloud platform for powerful security with low total cost of ownership.  AuthPoint enables:


  1. Effective MFA Protection with Mobile Device DNA AuthPoint provides 3 ways to authenticate, and our mobile device DNA matches the authorized users’ phone for an additional identification factor.

  2. Easy to Use AuthPoint Mobile App Users can authenticate right from their own phone!  No need to carry keyfobs or thumb drives; instead install and activate the AuthPoint mobile app in seconds.

  3. Broad Coverage with Web SSO AuthPoint supports the SAML standard and our ecosystem includes dozens of 3rd party integrations – enabling you to require authentication before accessing sensitive Cloud applications, web services, VPNs and networks.

  4. A Cloud-based Service AuthPoint runs on the WatchGuard Cloud platform and is available from wherever you are. There is no need to install software, schedule upgrades or manage patches.
