Starting up a two-factor authentication system

LEGAL DIGEST, NEWS \ 20.01.2020

Acsour’s business is based on the quality and security of its services. We are constantly working to improve these components and are happy to announce another update in the sphere of our information security. Since the beginning of 2020, the company has started using two-factor authentication to work in the 1C system.

Two-factor authentication is an additional level of security that provides a double layer, and therefore offers more effective protection of a user account from unauthorized access. In other words, when connecting to 1C databases, now it will be required to enter an additional verification code that is generated by an application on your smartphone. On request, a security token-pendant, which generates a confirmation code, may be used instead of an application on a phone.

To ensure maximum security, the code must be entered every time. With this quite secure barrier, it is possible to seriously reduce the likelihood of a user’s account becoming compromised and to eliminate the disadvantages of classic password protection.
