As the article says, 2FA (Two-factor authentication) is a way to make it harder for the hacker, but sometimes it is still not enough. 2FA also puts the responsibility on the end-user. To further protect a database and the stored passwords, Authentico Technologies gives the company (in this case Ubiquiti) a chance to protect their customers even when a breach is a fact by hindering the passwords from being cracked.
Authentico leverages its patented technology Ciphra, to secure passwords and personal data for companies with online platforms. INKY provides next-generation solutions to identify and prevent phishing attacks launched via email.
